BJP senior leader and Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday (May 14) said that the saffron party will win more seats than it did in 2014, a two-thirds majority of NDA cannot be ruled out.
The Union Minister said that opposition should reveal who is their prime ministerial candidate and also hit out at Congress for Mani Shankar Aiyar’s ‘Neech Aadmi’ jibe against PM Modi.
“I have reached a conclusion that BJP will win more seats in Lok Sabha polls than it did in 2014. Two-thirds majority for NDA also cannot be ruled out. The hope people had from the prime minister in the 2014 elections has turned into confidence this time,” Singh said at a press conference in the BJP headquarters.
“Last time, it was Modiji versus Sonia Gandhi/Manmohan Singh. This time it is Modiji versus whom? It is unknown. The opposition should not keep people in dark, should reveal its PM candidate,” he said.
He also asked the Congress to respond to Aiyar justifying his 2017 ‘neech aadmi’ remark about the prime minister. “Congress should give its response to Mani Shankar Aiyar’s comment that his claim about Modi was correct,” he said.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also slammed the ‘jewel of the Gandhi family’, and said, “Jewel of the Gandhi family too has contributed to the “Politics of Love” of Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha Eelctions2019 by defining His “Neech comment” on Modi ji as prophetic …”
Calling Mani Shankar Aiyar ‘abuser-in-chief’, BJP leader GVL Narsimha Rao said, “Aiyar returns to justify 2017 ‘Neech’ jibe at @narendramodi Ji. Aiyar then apologised and hid behind poor Hindi excuse. Now he says he was prophetic. Congress revoked his suspension last year for filthy outburst. Double speak & arrogance of Congress display again!”
