Anybody can become PM: BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha attacks PM Modi

India In PM Narendra Modi's poll speeches facts become casualty

As the Karnataka verdict seals the fate of Congress in their last major bastion, the BJP's war cry of "Congress Mukt Bharat" becomes louder.

This apart, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's intense campaigning - 21 rallies covering most of the districts - tilted the balance in favour of BJP and the Congress, which was depending heavily on one leader - Siddaramaiah - was not able to match that blitzkrieg.

The prices were increased two days after the Karnataka Assembly elections.

The face-off in Karnataka is being seen as the Congress's last stand in a battle to claim national party status, while for the BJP it is a chance to come closer to realizing Modi's dream of an India purged of the Congress. Mizoram, the seven north-eastern states to have a non-BJP government, goes to polls in December.

Everbody wanted to see what Sonam Kapoor would wear on her mehendi/wedding/reception and also who all would attend the party. On her first day, Sonam also had Pakistani beauty and Raees actor Mahira Khan accompanying her on the red carpet.

Congress spokesperson Brijesh Kalappa attributed the visits to Gandhi's concern about anti-incumbency or anger against the sitting government. The key principle of Modinomics: "Fool as many people as you can, as often as you can", Gandhi said in a tweet.

Even though I am uninvited, like in other states, from Bihar to UP to Gujarat as a star campaigner, for reasons best known to all of us, I shall humbly suggest as an old friend, well-wisher and supporter of the party.Let's not cross limits. "The Neerav, the Lalit, the Mallyas, the Bank, the Rafael deal and so on", Sinha said in another tweet, tagging both Modi and the BJP. "But this cannot be dismissed because the presence of these leaders can surely help sway voters who are not decided", said A. Narayana, a political analyst and professor for public policy at Azim Premji University.

All ministers in the Modi cabinet will visit different states and will hold press conferences to disseminate the Centre's achievements.
