FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post, and found it to be false.

We did a keyword search for NDTV’s Poll of Polls for the Telangana assembly elections in 2023, but could not find any latest opinion polls released by them.

We also identified a tweet, dated November 28, 2023, with a description: “#FakeNewsAlert | NDTV has not carried any poll of polls for #Telangana2023. Please don’t spread fake news.”

It is to be noted that the “Poll of Polls” conducted by NDTV, is actually an exit poll. Exit polls are typically released immediately after the last phase of voting. However, NDTV’s  “Poll of Polls in the viral post has been circulated two days before the scheduled voting date (November 30), causing confusion and concern.

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral graphic showing NDTV’s poll of polls is fake. No exit polls have been conducted by the channel so far.
