Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday sought to bolster the morale of party workers by asking them to not be disheartened by "rumours" and "fake" exit poll results and urged them to be alert at their respective booths.
The Gandhi scion tweeted in Hindi.
The tweet roughly translates to: "The next 24 hours are very important. Be alert. And do not be scared. Do not be disheartened by "rumours" and "fake" exit poll results. Keep the faith in yourself and in the Congress party."
कांग्रेस पार्टी के प्रिय कार्यकर्ताओं ,
अगले 24 घंटे महत्वपूर्ण हैं। सतर्क और चौकन्ना रहें। डरे नहीं। आप सत्य के लिए लड़ रहे हैं । फर्जी एग्जिट पोल के दुष्प्रचार से निराश न हो। खुद पर और कांग्रेस पार्टी पर विश्वास रखें, आपकी मेहनत बेकार नहीं जाएगी।

Most exit polls have predicted a majority for the BJP-led NDA, leaving the UPA far behind.
Earlier, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had also asked the party workers to stay positive.
Issuing a recorded audio message for Congress workers, she said they should not fall prey to "rumours and exit poll trends which are being promoted to undermine the spirits of Congress persons."
"Don't be disheartened with rumours and exit polls. These are crafted to undermine your spirits. Because of all this your alertness becomes all the more important. Be on your guard on strong rooms and counting centres. We are sure our and your hard work will bear fruit," Priyanka said in the message.
