In a first for Indian news channels, Bihar election readings saw discrepancies across TV channels.

Other exit poll predictions claimed Nitish Kumar win in the election. Questions were raised on Chanakya’s credibility and asked what went wrong.

The agency responds an email response on what went wrong and also issued an apology.

The letter said, “In our 18 plus years experience of polling experience, we have always maintained to provide a realistic picture of the ground. As a 100% independent unbiased agency, we have projected victories for Congress, BJP and regional parties wherever they were winning.

In the Bihar elections 2015, after the elections were examined- How we went so wrong? Where was the error at our end?

And we found that a simple computer template coding marking the alliances got interchanged at our end. Due to this our seat numbers remained the same but respective alliances got interchanged. And we are looking into the reasons why it happened.”
