Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Raises Poll Pitch For Brother Rahul Gandhi In Wayanad:
  • Five years ago, a government came into power that was voted in with a big majority. In all their wisdom, people of our country placed their faith and hopes in the BJP government. That government, from the moment it came to power, began to betray that faith.
  • They began to believe that power belonged to them and not people. The first indication of this gross misunderstanding came when their own President declared shortly after the election that promise of Rs 15 Lakh in every bank account was just for sake of elections, what he called a 'jumla'
  • I stand here on behalf of a man who I've known from the day I was born. He'll be your candidate in this election and over last 10 years has faced massive personal attack from his opponents. They've sought to portray a character of his which is very far from truth.

PM Modi Addresses Poll Rally In Bengal's Buniadpur:
  • Speed breaker Didi (PM Modi's reference to Mamata Banerjee) will know after May 23 what is the result of the vandalism, looting of money, and stopping the public's growth
  • In Purulia, a BJP worker was murdered. I want to assure each West Bengal BJP worker and people of the state that justice will be done. Strict action will be taken against those people who are responsible
  • Mamata Didi in the name of "Maa-maati-manush" has only cheated you
  • "Speedbreaker" Didi has lost her sleep after the first two phases of Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal
  • When our brave soldiers killed terrorists in Pakistan, Mamata Banerjee was one of those who had asked for its proof. If you want to seek evidence, then find proof for those involved in chitfund scam
  • It is shameful that people from neighbouring country are campaigning for the Trinamool, which was done to appease the minority community

Bihar politician and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav today reiterated his attack on PM Narendra Modi of being a "fake backward" person, ahead of the Prime Minister's visit to Bihar. "PM Narendra Modi is coming to Bihar today. He will say he's the son of extreme backward. He will make a failed attempt to polarise. Bihar expects lies and 'jumlas' from him. Hope that the PM would give an account of his promises from 2014, such as special status to Bihar, special package, and free education and medicines," Tejashwi Yadav tweeted, adding #BiharRejectsModi
