After the first phase of Uttar Pradesh elections was over on Feb 11th the news that was trending all around western UP was “BJP leading the polls with good margins”. But these were only speculations. Then 5FORTY3 real-time opinion poll was also showing BJP’s lead.
5Forty3 is undoubtedly the most accurate poll-predictor in the country. Not only that, but the best aspect of its analysis is that it educates the readers as to how poll analysis is done, & why a particular party is winning or losing. Unlike others, it doesn’t just give numbers.
Amid the family feud and Akhilesh Yadav’s last minute decision to form an alliance with Congress despite father and party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav’s disapproval clearly showed the party was nervous from the beginning of the election.
But Seems like Mulayam Singh Yadav knows ground reality and in the video, he is seen accepting defeat on the trends of 1st Phase. This is what he quoted. “BJP can win- and we have a similar ideology like BJP on several fronts”. This is what he said on live camera.
