To be sure, campaigning in Uttar Pradesh is ongoing until Friday evening. However, it was the PM’s last rally in the state.
“This is my last meeting in Uttar Pradesh. I have been coming here ahead of all the phases of polling. I want to congratulate the voters for conducting polls in a peaceful manner and coming out to vote in large numbers across the six phases. I hope the same will continue for the last phase," PM Modi said.
Uttar Pradesh along with West Bengal and Bihar went to poll across all the seven phases. On Sunday, thirteen constituencies including that of PM Modi’s Varanasi goes to poll.
“This time we will form a government with full majority and West Bengal is also joining us. BJP will cross 300 seats and we will form a government with our NDA alliance members," he said.
Uttar Pradesh is facing a three-cornered contest between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) – Samajwadi Party (SP) alliance and Congress. Launching an attack against the opposition, PM Modi said that they are making attempts to divide the people into castes.
“As the dose of abuses from the opposition against me is growing, the love and affection of the people are also growing for me. Those who were responsible for corruption, Naxalism and theft of resources in Uttar Pradesh are making such allegations against me," PM Modi said.
