7. Ashok Gehlot

Congress general secretary Ashok Gehlot remarked that the people had trusted Modi, but he had betrayed them. “Farmers, youth, traders, women, everyone now feels betrayed. There is sense of fear and mistrust among people. Fuel prices are sky-rocketing. This is a loot. The situation in the country is such and all sections of society are so unhappy that the people will force every party in the country to come together to defeat Modi and the BJP," he said.

8. Amarinder Singh

 Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh exuded confidence that a united opposition will oust the BJP-led government at the Centre, which he described as a "total failure on all counts".

The four years of Narendra Modi government prove that it has historically failed on the issues of inflation, poverty, unemployment, welfare work and other issues which affect the life of the people in the country," Mayawati said. 

She alleged that there was anarchy in all walks of life, which proved that the BJP's rule meant "jungle raj".

12. Sitaram Yechury
