INDIA bloc to win 46 of 48 LS seats in Maha, claim leaders

Mumbai, May 18 (UNI) National opposition INDIA bloc partners claimed on Sarturday that they would bag at least 46 of the 48 Lok Sabha seats in Maharashtra and accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of resorting to blatant lies to divert attention from real problems confronting the nation.

They said that it will finally dawn on Modi on June four, on vote-counting day, when the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be voted out and the Opposition government shall take office, they said here on Saturday.

The INDIA-MVA leaders like Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Shiv Sena (UBT) president Uddhav Thackeray and Nationalist Congress Party (SP) president Sharad Pawar fielded a wide variety of questions from media ahead of the fifth and final phase of polling for 13 LS seats scheduled in the state on May 20 (Monday).

“In 2014, the PM had promised ‘achhe din’. On June four (the election results day), the ‘achhe din’ will actually begin when the INDIA bloc government will come to office. All these years BJP defamed and looted the state, shifted businesses from Maharashtra-Mumbai to Gujarat,” said Thackeray.

He termed it as ‘unprecedented’ anywhere in the world that the PM himself campaigned for an extra-constitutional government on which the court verdict is pending.

Kharge said that the mood in the state is very favourable for the Opposition and ground reports indicate that the INDIA-MVA would bag at least 46 of the 48 seats in the state.

“It is impossible to run a bulldozer (on Lord Ram temple). This is an attempt to instigate the masses in the name of religion. The Election Commission of India must take action against such inflammatory speeches. Everything shall be safe and secure, and we shall go as per the Constitution,” declared Kharge.

Responding to a question on Veer Savarkar, Pawar said that Veer Savarkar is not a poll issue at all and yet BJP-PM are raising it to create confusion.

Referring to BJP president J P Nadda’s media interview, Thackeray said that the other day, Modi called Shiv Sena (UBT) a ‘nakli Sena’ and ‘nakli santaan’, tomorrow, they will label RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) as ‘nakli’ and ban it.
