Congress on Friday announced its decision not to participate in any Lok Sabha exit poll debates on television channels. Congress spokesperson and media department chairperson Pawan Khera said the voters have cast their votes and their verdict has been secured, adding that the party doesn't “see any reason to indulge in speculation and slugfest for TRP.”

BJP president J P Nadda claimed that the Congress's decision amounts to an "unequivocal confirmation" that the opposition party has conceded the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. In a post on X, Nadda urged voters not to waste their votes in the seventh and last phase of the polls on Saturday, arguing that the Congress typically opts out when it doesn't expect favourable results but has no compunction showing up if it thinks it has even an outside chance.

However, the grand old party on Saturday said all INDIA parties would participate in the exit poll results.

Delhi Exit Poll LIVE updates

Prime Minister Narendra Modi concluded his extensive Lok Sabha campaign with a rally in Punjab's Hoshiarpur. Since the Election Commission announced the poll schedule on March 16, Modi has conducted 206 public outreach events, surpassing his 145 engagements during the 2019 elections. Over the 76-day campaign period, he visited all five southern states, focusing on improving the BJP's standing in regions where it previously had little success. Modi's relentless campaigning, marked by rallies, roadshows, and 80 media interviews, highlighted his role as the BJP's primary vote-getter. The impact of his efforts will be revealed on June 4, when the election results are declared.

In a vigorous campaign effort to boost the Congress' chances in the Lok Sabha elections, party leaders Mallikarjun Kharge, Rahul Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra each participated in over 100 public outreach events. Rahul Gandhi campaigned in Punjab on the final day of campaigning for the seventh phase of voting, while Priyanka Gandhi led a roadshow in Solan, Himachal Pradesh.

Exit polls 2024: India Today-Axis, News 24-Today's Chanakya – how accurate they were in 2019, 2014

Exit poll predictions should not be blindly trusted, and there have been notable instances of incorrect predictions in recent years. However, the exit polls for the 2019 and 2014 Indian general elections almost accurately captured the overall sentiment.

In 2019, exit polls predicted an average of 306 seats for the NDA and 120 for the UPA. The actual results were significantly higher for the NDA, which won 352 seats (with the BJP alone securing 303), while the UPA won only 93 seats (with Congress getting 52). India Today-Axis My India had predicted 352 seats for the BJP-led NDA, while News24-Today's Chanakya also predicted a big win for the BJP.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won 303 seats, 21 more than its 2014 tally, while the Congress party was restricted to 52 seats. The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and YSRCP won 23 seats each, followed by Mamata Banerjee's TMC 22, Shiv Sena 18, JD(U) 16, BJD 12, BSP 10, SP 5, NCP 5, and CPI(M) 3.

This time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set a target of over 400 seats for the NDA, with the BJP aiming for more than 370 seats.

Stay tuned as we bring you real-time updates, expert analyses, and reactions from across the political spectrum. Whether you're keen to know which party might hold the reins of power or how individual states have swayed, our comprehensive coverage aims to keep you informed every step of the way.

These are just predictions and pollsters could get it wrong.
