“If you see Rahul Baba somewhere, tell him that he is not getting more than 40 seats; Akhilesh Yadav won't cross the target of four seats…” he added.

“This opposition has moved ahead by forming a ‘Ghamandiya’ alliance. Today, I want to ask Rahul Gandhi, if you get the majority, then who will be your Prime Minister? Can Sharad Pawar, Lalu Yadav, or Uddhav Thackeray become the PM? Can Rahul Gandhi become the PM?” he asked.

Reiterating that there could be no reservation based on religion, he said that the INDIA bloc intends to rob the reservation of the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribe, and other Backward Castes.
