Chief Minister's balanced reply on survey won him more admirers
Agra: Being a perfect sport, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said the recent survey based on intelligence report projecting the ruling Samajwadi Party as a laggard in coming assembly elections, will be a wakeup call for the party.
''The surveys, at times, do create confusions but I take it with positivity. It is good that it warned us and we have still one year to make amends,'' was Akhilesh's mature reply when his attention was drawn towards the survey.
It may be recalled that www.newztrack.com had first come out with a news story based on intelligence report followed by another survey in a national news channel.
Those who were expecting adverse reactions from the Chief Minister were pleasantly surprised at the measured reply of the Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
The report had even given out number of seats likely to be won by the major parties in the coming assembly elections which stand at 150-175 for Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), 130-135 for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and 110-125 for Samajwadi Party. It clearly means that the state was likely to enter into yet another phase of coalition government because this intelligence survey does not suggest clear majority for any party, including the BSP.
