Former MP Lagadapati Rajagopal is famous for his accurate surveys but he got it badly wrong in 2019 and after that disappeared totally. He gave a couple of interviews on the occasion of state bifurcation completing 10 years.
In one of the interviews, Lagadapadi was asked about the impact of the TDP and Janasena alliance.
“Usually, vote transfer is a problem. Small parties will easily transfer their votes to big parties. But the vice-versa is difficult. We used to face the same problem when Congress had an alliance with communist parties,” Lagadapati said.
It looks like Lagadapati is saying Janasena to TDP vote transfer is easy but TDP to Janasena vote transfer is difficult.
The former MP also dropped hints that he is still doing his surveys but is not interested to reveal them.
He also analyzed what went wrong with his survey in 2019.
“I am politically inactive after the bifurcation. The survey may have gone wrong because I am not in the people. There may be scientific errors as well. But I feel being in the people may have got my earlier surveys right,” he said.
He also reiterated that he is not going to come back to politics as announced earlier.
