New Delhi: AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on Sunday that it was “very clear” that the BJP would face defeat in the Lok Sabha polls as people are “angry and distressed” and they will convey their sentiments through their vote. Interacting with reporters after exercising her franchise, the senior party leader said it was “very clear that the BJP government is going”. She was speaking to reporters after casting her vote here on Sunday.

Targeting the Narendra Modi government, Ms Vadra said: “There is anger among people, and they are under distress. Modiji, instead of talking about real issues, has been talking about random things. And now, they will express their anger against this government through voting.”

Speaking about the difference between the Congress and the BJP’s campaigns, she said the Congress campaigns on “real issues” and the Prime Minister has “not even responded to the challenge thrown by our party president (Rahul Gandhi) to debate on real issues”. He and his party had in 2014 promised to deposit Rs 15 lakhs in every Indian’s bank account and create two crore jobs, but Prime Minister Modi “doesn’t talk about that”, she said.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday cast his vote in the Lok Sabha polls in New Delhi, and hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he “used hatred” during the elections but the grand old party “used love”. Asserting that this election saw a “good fight” between the two rival parties, Mr Gandhi said he thought “love is going to win”. Asked how many seats the Congress was winning, he said: “I won’t comment on that. It will be decided by the people. They are the masters. Whatever the people say, we will accept. How many seats we will win... the people will decide that... Jai Hind,” he said.
