Congress feeling the heat of loseing the power in 2014 Lok sobha election.

According to Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh : "Opinion polls should be stopped. In a state like Madhya Pradesh which has more than 3 crore voters how can you have a survey with just 2800 people? These should be stopped. Anyone can give some money and get the survey done. These people are not even authorised by the government."

In to this BJP leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy said: Surveys and opinion polls have been conducted for a very long time but now the Congress is suggesting that it should be banned. There were occasions when they welcomed the opinion polls when they were in their favour. It highlights the insecurity of the Congress.

The CNN-IBN-The Week survey had shown that if elections were to be held today, the UPA figure would go down to between 134-142 seats against the NDA's 187-195 seats. The Congress would win between 116 to 124 seats as against the BJP's 171 to 179 seats.

But Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal told: No to opinion poll ban but to ensure their integrity, the agency should be required to put all its raw data in public domain.
