Voting began at 8 a.m and will continue till 4 p.m for the Mahabubnagar-Rangareddy-Hyderabad and Warangal-Khammam-Nalgonda Graduates' constituencies which saw intense campaigning by the ruling TRS, BJP, Congress, and other parties.

Amidst this, a photo claiming to show an exit poll survey conducted by V6velugu is being shared on Facebook and WhatsApp. The alleged HYD-RR-MBNR Graduates' MLC voter survey shows TRS candidate leading with a 52 per cent majority.

The photo was also shared on the Facebook page of World Wide KCR fans club but was later deleted.

Here is the image shared on Whatsapp.

Fact Check:

The claim that the viral image shows an exit poll survey conducted by V6velugu is FALSE.

The media house which publishes the newspaper V6velugu and runs the news channel V6 has refuted the claims. It has filed a police complaint against miscreants who created the fake image in the name of V6.

Sharing this news on all its social media accounts, the media house complained that it is the action of big leaders of an important party.

V6 tweeted, "It's Fake News..V6 Velugu Did not conduct any survey on this graduates MLC Elections 2021. Don't trust this kind of false news. #FakeNews # mlcelection2021 #Falsesurvey # V6velugu."

NewsMeter also found that the viral image mentions 'V6velagu.com' and NOT the original 'V6velugu.com'.

Therefore, the claim that the image shows a poll conducted by V6velugu is FALSE. It is a doctored image to mislead the voters.
