In a new indication of the BJP’s growing confidence in the run-up to the Lok Sabha polls, the party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Thursday claimed this was the first election in which the country had decided on the result even before voting.

“This is the first election when the country has decided the elections before voting. Otherwise, why should so many people assemble here on such a warm day? I bow before your effort,” Modi told the crowd which had turned up despite a state bandh called by the Maoists.

“You have rejected them (Maoists) by coming here today. After I form the government, I will ensure that your wait does not go in vain,” he said during a 35-minute speech.

Modi branded this election unique for what he said was the amount of support he has been receiving. “Usually, people come together to throw a government out of power. It is for the first time that people are coming together to say, ‘Modi ko makaan do’. People are coming together to make Modi Prime Minister, to give Modi power,” he said.

    Narendra Modi, a great expert of telling, lies, has already declared results of ongoing elections. So, there is no need of waiting for May 16, the counting day. Modi should go to President Pranab Mukharjee and take oath for Prime Minister's post. But, as this is not possible under any consutional provision, he can take oath in his dreams. Such day dreamers have no connections with real situation which are entirely different.

    My sincere advise to Modiji is to remain focused on his development agenda and not get in to barbs like AK-49......frontal attack on Kejriwal will only help him get public attention which is on mive decline.
