Telugu Media awarded the 'Andhra Octopus' tag to Lagadapati Rajagopal. After his Yesterday's press meet, There was a detailed analysis on the poll predictions of this Former MP on Social Media.
Netizens opined Lagadapati Survey Results had come true only in the case of 2014 Elections. Several Congress MLAs accompanied Jagan after he floated YCP and by-elections happened in AP due to their resignations. At that time, Lagadapati offered a report to Congress High Command that YCP would win only 8 seats. Whereas, Jagan's Camp managed to get clean sweep.
Post 2014, The success rate of Lagadapati Rajagopal wasn't impressive at all. While he predicted victory for DMK, Jayalalithaa-led AIADMK emerged victorious in Tamil Nadu Assembly Polls. Lagadapati predicted magic figure for BJP in Karnataka. However, Congress-JD (S) Coalition Government was formed. In Telangana, Lagadapati declared victory for Mahakutami and 10 Independents. However, TRS retained power and 8 out 10 Independents announced by him faced defeat.
So, There is no guarantee that Lagadapati survey on 2019 Elections will be accurate. Whatever he might predict, Better to wait till the counting day to know who wins the battle.
