Lokniti CSDS Calls Andhra Jyothy’s Bluff On Poll Survey

Lokniti CSDS Calls Andhra Jyothy’s Bluff...

TDP Supremo Chandrababu Naidu aided by the yellow media is resorting to the most desperate measures to convince people that the ruling party is on a winning run. In a latest development, the Andhra Jyothi daily published a fake survey purported to have been conducted by Lokniti-CSDS, stating that the TDP was all set to form the next government in Andhra Pradesh with a clear majority.

Clearly, this report was intended to confuse a section of people in the state, but when a clarification was sought from Lokniti to authenticate the report in the Telugu daily, the institution strongly denied the involvement of Lokniti in any such survey in AP.

In a tweet, Lokniti rubbished the fake survey and added that they would take legal action against the newspaper in question (Andhra Jyothy). The tweet further clarified that they had not conducted any study during those days and with the sample that the newspaper quoted. CDS Lokniti is no way connected with this news item, the tweet further said.

Here is an official statement issued by Lokniti-CSDS: "Some social media platforms and print media have circulated findings of survey purported to be made by Lokniti CSDS in Andhra Pradesh projecting vote shares and seat shares. Lokniti wishes to clarify that it has not done any survey in Andhra Pradesh, that it was not associated with any such survey, that is has not placed in public domain any reported findings and the news that is being circulated is mischievous and mala fide. Lokniti-CSDS further wish to clarify that it is in no way responsible for the fraudulent reporting and findings about the so-called survey," according to Sandeep Shastri, National Coordinator, Lokniti Network Sanjay Kumar, Director CSDS and Co-Director Lokniti Suhas Palshikar, Co-Director Lokniti. This only shows the levels to which the TDP and the yellow media can go to paint a rosy picture for the ruling party which flies in the face of reality.
