Curtains down on first phase of campaigning

Curtains down on first phase of campaigning

"Remember the good old days before 2014 when Indians had jobs and a PM that didn't lie to them", Congress said on Twitter, with a hashtag calling the BJP manifesto a gimmick.

BJP President Amit Shah on Tuesday claimed that people have decided to make Narendra Modi the Prime Minister again. Congress's manifesto and Pakistan speak same language on Kashmir related issues.

Modi has made his strong stance on national security a key part of the BJP's election campaign, following a recent flare up in tensions with arch foe Pakistan, which also lays claims to Kashmir.

Prime Minister Khan did appear to offer India an olive branch, saying that Islamabad was determined to dismantle all Pakistan-based militias in the country and that the government had full support from Pakistan's powerful army for the programme.

Earlier, on April 6, the prime minister had said Indian ruling party's attempt to win election through whipping up war hysteria and false claims of downing a Pakistan's F-16 aircraft has backfired. Congress president Rahul Gandhi was visiting Assam, Bihar, and Odisha.

He said the Modi government was planning to set up a tribal university in the state and had also completed many railway projects pending for years in the state. As the Indian Air Force engaged the Pakistani jets, the PAF shot down two Indian warplanes ─ one of which crashed in Azad Jammu and Kashmir ─ and captured an Indian pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan.


The prime minister said there was still the possibility if the polls turn against Modi in the next few weeks that India could take some further military action against Pakistan.

The Lok Sabha elections are being held in four phases in Maharashtra, with the first seven seats in Vidarbha going to polls on 11 April.

Amit Shah, the head of the Hindu nationalist BJP party, along with other top leaders released the party's manifesto for the upcoming elections that begin on Thursday.

"Your trust is my biggest accomplishment in last five years", Modi told the crowd.

PM Modi, while speaking at the Latur rally said, "I have come to know that you are sitting here since 9.30 AM". Later in the evening, Modi will reach Tamil Nadu where he will take the BJP rally forward to Coimbatore.
