If Sunday's exit poll predictions turn into a reality on Thursday, Rahul may recall Modi's concluding speech in Parliament during a no-confidence motion moved by Congress and TDP, wishing Opposition (Rahul in particular) luck in 2024. In Australia last weekend, 56 different exit polls proved wrong.

Sources said both heartland allies were cautious and had advised Naidu to wait for the results.

The Congress president said the Trinamool Congress, Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and the Telugu Desam Party will not support the National Democratic Alliance, PTI reported.
