Taking a pot shot at PM Modi, Gandhi said, "Prime Minister is accompanying Amit Shah at a press conference. It does not come from a handshake of two leaders in a Delhi drawing room who then order their supporters to vote according to their diktat, like bonded labourers", Shah said, in a barely veiled allusion to the alliance between Akhilesh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party and Mayawati of the Bahujan Samaj Party.

A government with full majority will come back after remaining in power for five years.

Defending Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur's candidature, Shah said she was fielded to fight against conspiracy hatched by some people and BJP will act against Bhopal candidate after an internal probe. Elections were held in a positive spirit. This is probably happening after a very long time.

"BJP does not agree with this statement, we condemn it", said party spokesman GVL Narasimha Rao in a statement to media.

He said India should impress the world with its diversity and democracy. Modi can say whatever he wants to say while we're stopped from saying the same thing.

"We ensured last-mile delivery, which was a new structure of governance".

Six days before the results of the Lok Sabha 2019 elections, and with less than two hours to go for campaigning to end for the final phase of the polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was present at a press briefing by BJP president Amit Shah, and also gave a short speech during the briefing. The results of the 2019 Lok Sabha election will be declared on May 23. "Our government will take up its responsibility as soon as possible", he added. Today is also May 17. "People in "Satta bazaar" who bet for Congress to get 150 seats and for the BJP to get only around 206-10 in elections faced huge losses on May 17", he added.

Referring to the Statue of Unity, R. Prasad pokes fun at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "statue" fad as he suggests that the PM's promise of a grand "Vidyasagar statue" in West Bengal reflects his belief in the "Gujarat model" of development. Shah said the party is doing well on 80 seats out of 120 which it had lost in 2014.

"We set up 161 call centres with 15,682 callers who reached out to the 24.81 crore beneficiaries of the various programmes run by the Modi government", he said.

"The NDA will form the next government with a comfortable majority", said Mr. Shah.
