What's gone wrong with Lagadapati Rajagopal? Where has that vintage Lagadapati who had been lauded as Andhra Octopus till some days ago? Has he been entangled in the caste biased trap of AP CM Chandrababu Naidu? Having gone through Lagapati's exit poll results on Telangana elections, above doubts are piercing into the minds of people.
As expected, Lagadapati appeared before media on the evening of D-Day of Telangana polls and disclosed his predictions. As we all know, four credible news agencies such as India Today, CNN, AARA and Times Now unanimously divulged that the TRS party will form the government in Telangana.
Contrary to the above news agencies' exit poll results, Lagadapati anticipated Praja Kootami's (People's Front) victory in the poll battle. According to Lagadapati, Congress+ will get 65 seats and would form the government. TRS will face humiliating defeat with less than 35 seats. Wonder what Lagadapati's prediction says BJP and MIM would get 7 seats each.
Above all, Lagadapati particularly mentioned that TDP will win in 7 seats. He glorified TDP to the core analysing that TDP and TRS had actually battled for just 10 constituencies and TDP would pulverise TRS in 7 constituencies.
If at all Lagadapati is proved right with his exit poll results he will be applauded more than like anything by psephologists. If not, Lagadapati will instantly be transformed as a comedian in politics. Let's not hope would it happen!
