Lok Sabha elections 2019 HIGHLIGHTS: With the first phase of General Assembly polls less than a week away, major political parties in the country have intensified their campaigning. Addressing a BJP rally in Manipur’s Imphal city, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said, “They (Congress) have played with your lives and respect. Manipur is known for football and it’s about time to show the red card to Congress for the foul”.
Earlier, while addressing a BJP rally in western Odisha’s Bargarh, BJP president Amit Shah also slammed Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for being unable to name the prime ministerial face of the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ if it is voted to power.
“Rahul Baba (Gandhi) is not able to tell the people who is the leader of the Mahagathbandhan. He does not know who will be prime minister if the alliance wins the upcoming polls,” Shah said.
