Lok Sabha elections 2019 HIGHLIGHTS: The first phase of voting for the Lok Sabha elections saw a moderate turnout on Thursday. Political leaders are now set for the next round of campaigning.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address in Calicut, Kerala said, “For decades, the Communist LDF and Communal UDF have dominated Kerala politics but they have miserably failed the people.” Earlier today, Modi in his address at Gangavathi in Karnataka criticised the Congress-JDS rule in the state and said, “As much as Congress and JDS are disconnected with the people, they are immensely connected to their families.” While at Ahmednagar in Maharashtra, he said that the Congress government was corrupt and urged the people to vote for honest leaders.
Meanwhile, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi completed three rallies in Tamil Nadu covering, Salem, Theni and Madurai. In Theni, Rahul assured farmers that if his party comes in power, it will introduce a new law which would not allow farmers to be put in jail on not being able to pay their defaulting loans.
