Amid rising tensions and exit poll predictions, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge and former AICC chief Rahul Gandhi spearheaded a high-stakes meeting on Sunday. The virtual conference, aimed at Lok Sabha candidates, legislative party leaders, and state unit chiefs, stressed the importance of heightened vigilance to thwart any attempts at election rigging on poll counting day.

Joining Kharge and Gandhi were party general secretaries Jairam Ramesh and K C Venugopal. Together with senior leaders, they meticulously reviewed the preparations for the critical day of June 4. This proactive measure follows exit polls suggesting a victorious third term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP-led NDA.

The Congress camp swiftly dismissed the exit poll results. Jairam Ramesh labeled them as "completely bogus," asserting they were manipulated by those poised to lose power. As the INDIA bloc parties also rallied over the weekend, they expressed confidence in securing over 295 parliamentary seats, positioning themselves to form the next government.
