EC has surrendered to Modi: Rahul Gandhi

Even as the final phase of polling was getting over on Sunday, Rahul Gandhi lashed out at the Election Commission.  The Congress chief accused the constitutional body of surrendering to Narendra Modi.  

"From Electoral Bonds & EVMs to manipulating the election schedule, NaMo TV, “Modi’s Army” & now the drama in Kedarnath; the Election Commission’s capitulation before Mr Modi & his gang is obvious to all Indians. The EC used to be feared & respected. Not anymore," RaGa said.

This was seen by his critics and political observers as a kind of "exit poll".  It was clear that Congress was jittery even before the actual Exit Polls were out.
