Trashing the predictions of the exit polls, Congress leader Ajay Maken on Thursday said that the party will perform well in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections whose results are going to be announced on Thursday.

"We are very confident that the party will perform well in the polls result," said Maken after a meeting of party spokespersons and media panelists.

"The way the exit polls and opinion polls of all channels are conducted, the Congress party rubbishes them. Tomorrow this will be witnessed by the whole country. Even now we can see that all the exit polls are different from each other. There is a sure probability that the exit polls will be wrong," he added.

On the meeting of party spokespersons and media panelists, Maken said, "We had a meeting with Congress spokespersons and media panelists. The roster duty for tomorrow's elections was discussed. We have told them that according to the traditions of the Congress party we should make our message clear to people and ensure that it reaches them."

A majority of 272 seats in parliament is needed to form a government, although that is often achieved with outside support from regional parties.

India's staggered voting was spread over five weeks to reach the country's 815 million voters around its varied terrain.

Counting of votes will take place on Friday.
