New Delhi, August 12: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will come into the power again in 2019 by a bigger margin than in 2014. He claimed that the BJP will break all records in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. “We will definitely get more seats than we got the last time and I am confident that we will break all records of seats won by NDA in the past,” Modi asserted, while speaking to Times of India.
He also took a swipe at the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) by calling it a failed idea which can never succeed. “A non-ideological alliance of desperate and disparate group is not a mahagathbandhan but a political adventurism,” the Prime Minister said.

Modi also hit out at the Congress party for Opposing Assam’s National Register of Citizens, released on July 30. “Their vote-bank politics prevented it from implementing. On this count, the grand of is guilty of criminal negligence,” PM stated.
On being asked about Congress’ allegation of scam in Rafale jet deal, he said that their accusation is nothing but a propaganda to undermine national interest.
The Prime Minister also dismissed Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s charged that the NDA govt had failed to fulfil its promise of creating jobs saying,”Over 45 lakh formal jobs were created between September 2017 and April 2018 and EPFO data indicated that 70 lakh jobs were created last year.”
Expressing grief over rising cases of lynching and crime against women, he said that the Centre is fully committed to upholding the rule of law and protecting the life and liberty of every single citizen. “No person can take the law into his/her hand and commit violence,” PM added.
