Election Results 2016: I don't accept exit polls, they've been wrong earlier, says Tarun Gogoi

Three-time Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi remains confident of a victory in the Assembly polls and seem to be proving the exit polls wrong.

"I don't accept exit polls, they've been proved wrong earlier also," he said.

He told NDTV that he will not retire even if he loses.

According to the exit polls, BJP will form its first government in the northeastern state of Assam defeating the Tarun Gogoi-led Congress that has been in the forefront since the last 15 years.

Gogoi has ruled out any possibility of forming a secular Third Front to keep the BJP away from power as he is "confident" of returning to power in the state for a consecutive fourth term. "We are definitely going to get the majority. We'll reach the magic figure of 64, nothing less than that," said Gogoi, as reported by the Indian Express.

BJP's chief ministerial candidate Sarbananda Sonowal has said the exit polls only reflected the wishes of the people and that BJP and its allies were going to form the next government in the state. BJP has taken the exit polls so seriously that sweets have already been distributed in the party's Assam office.
