"All Congress workers should get into the field with full force. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has lost the elections. Some exit polls have been deliberately created so that Congress workers get disappointed and to put pressure on the officers by creating a false atmosphere. This conspiracy is not going to succeed," he said.

He added that all Congress officials should be geared up for the counting day.

"We are all ready to win and are all united. If you (party workers) feel any problem then please talk to me directly or inform the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) office on December 3. The Congress Party is going to be in power in the state on December 3," he added.
