    Rahul Gandhi might have to contest election from some place across oceans in future, says MP CM Mohan Yadav

    Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav has said that in future Congress leader Rahul Gandhi might have to contest an election from some place across the oceans, as he would not find a safe seat in the country.

    Talking to reporters here on Wednesday after campaigning for the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections ended, Yadav said Wayanad MP Gandhi could not save his Amethi seat in north India last time.

    "He used to insult our religion, insult the youth power and women. He ran away after losing the election from Uttar Pradesh (Amethi) and reached the southern state (Kerala)...in future he may have to cross the oceans and contest election from somewhere else," Yadav quipped.

    The Narendra Modi government successfully tackled Naxalism, terrorism, corruption and poverty, the BJP leader said.

    We don't come in surverys, directly form government, says Bhagwant Mann

    Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday said though the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)'s popularity is not captured in pre-poll surveys, its actual performance helps the outfit directly form government and asserted the Lok Sabha elections will deliver surprising results.

    Mann, a senior leader of the AAP, an I.N.D.I.A bloc constituent, dismissed as a 'jumla' (rhetoric), the BJP's poll slogan of 'Abki Baar 400 Paar' (saffron party-led NDA's claim of winning more than 400 Lok Sabha seats).

    He said putting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is also the AAP convener, in jail in connection with the excise policy case ahead of the Lok Sabha elections reflected autocracy as well as conspiracy by the ruling party.

    "This is both autocracy as well as conspiracy. This is their (BJP's) tactic to put opposition leaders in jail ahead of polls," Mann claimed.

    "Abki Baar 400 Paar is a jumla. Why did they (BJP) not say this during the 2020 assembly polls in Delhi? And who are they to decide how many seats they will win? It will be the 140 crore people of India who will decide who gets how many seats. This country is not somebody's personal property," he maintained.
