Indian political parties welcome ban on exit polls.

Major political parties on Tuesday welcomed the Election Commission’s decision to ban publication or telecast of opinion/exit polls 48 hours before the last hour of polling in single-phase balloting.

“We welcome this decision. Opinion polls create distortions. They can have an effect on the trend of polling. It was a feeling of almost all political parties, and the Election Commission has taken note of this feeling,” senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid told IANS.
