Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Sunday rejected the various exit polls, saying that their accuracy was 'suspect' and he expected the Congress to do much better both at the national and state level.

Most opinion polls are giving clear or near-clear majority to BJP-led NDA at the Centre while projecting 9-10 seats out of 13 for the Congress in Punjab.

"With so much experience, even if I go around Punjab to gauge the voter swing, I would not be able to do it with complete accuracy. So how can these exit polls be accurate," asked Chief Minister Singh.

"I am confident that the Congress would do much better in these Lok Sabha elections. Even in Punjab, I am the party to get more than the 9 or 10 seats," he said.

Thanking the voters of Punjab for ensuring smooth, peaceful, free and fair conduct of the elections, Amarinder said the voter turnout indicated the people's commitment to upholding the democratic ethos of the country, which the BJP-led NDA was trying to destroy.

The final phase of polling has concluded in 59 parliamentary constituencies spread over seven states and the Union Territory of Chandigarh. The counting of votes is scheduled for May 23. (ANI)
