Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday dismissed talk of a “Modi wave”, saying it was a “creation of the media”.
Speaking to reporters after casting his vote here, he said, “I don’t think that the country as a whole has been swept by any Modi wave. The Modi wave is the creation of the media.”
Replying to a question, he said, “I don’t think that the Congress party is losing ground. We should wait till the end of the election process.”
Singh, accompanied by his wife Gursharan Kaur, arrived at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport here in a special aircraft from Delhi and then took a helicopter to Khanapara, from where they drove to the polling booth.
“I have come to Guwahati to exercise my right as a citizen of this great country. I am confident that the democratic process of the country is firmly established and I urge all citizens to cast their votes,” he added.
Singh flew back to Delhi immediately after casting his vote.
