Unfazed by the exit polls predicting a fractured mandate in the Bihar assembly election, the Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Wednesday said the polls were very rarely correct and were conducted at the "behest of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Bhartiya Janata Party."
"We have emerged stronger proving the prophets of doom wrong in every election," Lalu said.
