"Didi, on May 23, when the results will come, the lotus will bloom everywhere and your MLAs will leave you. Didi, your 40 MLAs are in contact with me even now," PM Modi said at an election rally here.

"Didi (Mamata) is also dreaming to become the prime minister by contesting a handful of seats. If the prime minister's post can be received from the auction, then Didi and the Congress would have come into the auction with the money looted by them," Prime Minister Modi said

Speaking at a press conference here, Shah said that the BJP in its manifesto has clearly stated that there will be zero tolerance against terrorism. Also, we have clarified our stand in BJP's manifesto regarding Article 370, Citizenship Amendment Bill and NRC.

“Speed-breaker didi is running scared as she knows that people’s mood has changed,” the Prime Minister said at an election rally in Cooch Behar in West Bengal, a state that sends 42 members to the Lok Sabha.

West Bengal will go to polls in all seven phases of the Lok Sabha elections which will begin on April 11 and conclude on May 19. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.

Launching his party's poll campaign in West Bengal, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday slammed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying she makes only "fake promises" and "lies to the people".

We have fielded about 41 per cent women candidates this time, which is a record in itself. Earlier we had fielded 35 per cent women candidates. We want to win all 42 seats and our challenge is to remove Modi from power,” Mamata said.

Banerjee said: "Politics is being played over the dead bodies of fallen soldiers. They are showing missiles, bombs and guns. We are with the Army, Navy and Air Force but not with Modi. And they say that who is not with Modi is Pakistani."

The Indian Air Force conducted air strikes in Pakistan's Balakot on February 26, the Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa said today. However, some prominent leaders of Congress party have been arguing that the government has not been able to provide proof of the air strikes conducted on Pakistani soil and the number of terrorists dead in the operation.
