Prime Minister Modi today in an interview to news channel Republic Bharat has asserted that the BJP-led NDA will not only win the 2019 general elections but also win with more seats than in 2014. Taking on the Mahagathbandhan, the coalition of opposition parties, PM Modi said that the opposition today is more scattered than it was in 2014.
“In Bengal, Kerala and Odisha, has there been any understanding between the Opposition parties? Then how is the gathbandhan working? It is not yet happening. If people of this country have decided to give us the majority, then who can keep us out even if they decide to ally up after the polls are done? The country has made its decision to ensure full majority and reinstate the NDA government, no one can question that,” PM Modi said adding that the BJP, as well as all its allies, will definitely win more seats than 2014.
Adding that even when it is the ruling party, it is his responsibility as a prime minister to work together with the opposition. “Be it Congress or Mamata or Mayawati, I am committed to work together with them,” he asserted that the people of the country are in favour of giving a strong mandate and full majority to the government.
Taking on the false promises of Congress, PM Modi said, “They have been talking about poverty since decades. Nehru, Indira, Rajiv, Sonia and now Rahul is also parroting the same.” He added that if the people of the country sit and read all the promises made by the opposition, they themselves will agree that they should never be given the charge to form the government.
