  • BJP-led alliance will win over 300 seats PM Modi in MP

He said there was a time when the Indian Premier League (IPL) had to be shifted out of India due to polls, but under the current government, elections could be held even when Ramzan was being observed and Easter commemorated, Ram Navmi celebrated and board exams held.

Thakur did later apologize for the comment, but that didn't stem the wave of condemnation that followed, including from Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself, a leading member of the BJP. Though Modi didn't take the questions, he intently listened to questions, including the one on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's reported remarks that he wanted to "destroy the image of Modi". "Her statements have not only brought disgrace but also hurt the sentiments of people in India & across the world", Congress said in a statement posted on Facebook.

Amit Shah said the press conference was organised to give the party's view on the completion of campaigning for the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Addressing the media, PM Modi said that BJP will retain the power with a greater mandate and would serve people of the country for the second consecutive turn. The prime minister said that poll campaign was a success for the ruling dispensation. The beginning of an honest governance began then. We have promised many things in our manifesto to take the country forward. Five years ago on 17 May, many were ruined: "because they put their faith in gamblers and the satta market which had predicted that the Congress would get 150 seats and the BJP would get 218", Modi said, adding his government would return with full majority once again.

To another question, directed at Mr. Modi and redirected to Mr. Shah, the latter said the Opposition's efforts at meeting up before the results to explore the possibilities of government formation were a redundant exercise.

"Prime Minister holds a press conference just 4-5 days before the election ends".

The PM, to the very first question addressed to him, said: "I am a disciplined soldier, party president is everything for me". "Seems that the elections schedule was made for Modi's campaigning".

"Election results came on May 16, 2014 and a huge casualty took place on May 17, 2014".

The first entry is dated June 19, 2014 and is about Modi's maiden Lok Sabha speech, in which he claimed "slave mentality of 1,200 years is troubling us (India)".
