Exit Polls of the 2019 Parliamentary elections that depicted an unchallenging win for the NDA has put the Opposition at an uneasy spot thus leading to multiple analysis, spinning conspiracies and blunt opinions in the political discourse.

Giving a piece of his mind over the predictions, the Swaraj India chief Yogendra Yadav said that the "Congress must die" and accused them of playing a passive role by failing to stop BJP to "save the idea of India"

Further in his attack stated that the grand old party became the "single best obstacle" to create an alternative.

His tweet read: "The Congress must die. If it could not stop the BJP in this election to save the idea of India, this party has no positive role in Indian history. Today it represents the single biggest obstacle to the creation of an alternative."

However, hours after his tweet, the former AAP leader clarified his stand, saying that although in history the Congress has played a great role pre and post-independence, but there is "no positive role left to perform in history anymore" 

He said: "My expression "no positive role in Indian history" may have caused some confusion. I cannot possibly deny the great role of Congress before and immediately after independence.

What I meant was "no positive role left to perform in history anymore". Stand by that."

Republic Media Network in tune with the election season held mega double exit polls with Jan Ki Baat and CVoters-
