Lok Sabha Polls 2019: ‘Centre Is Not Facing Anti-Incumbency, but Pro-Incumbency’ says PM Modi in Odisha

Intensifying its hunt to retain power at Centre, Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a rally in Odisha on Tuesday hailed his government. Hitting out at Congress and Rahul Gandhi, PM Narendra Modi said this would be the first election where the ruling party is not facing anti-incumbency rather is overwhelmed with pro-incumbency factor.

Slamming the Opposition Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said its Leader and President (Rahul Gandhi) has zero vision and hence the party is losing credibility among the voters.

Further asserting the confidence of winning big, PM Modi said this would be the first time in that Centre ruling part is facing the elections with confident and under a pro-incumbency wave. He said while opposition parties are frustrated and disheartened.

Addressing a Public meeting, he added this is because people across the nation know how much the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Central Government did in the past 5 years. There is no anti-incumbency factor in the polls, he asserted.

Prime Minister who is seeking another term from Varanasi further trained guns towards Opposition and took ‘Mahamilavat’ Jibe. He reportedly said, ‘People are angry with Congress and its Mahamilavati friends for spreading lies and make baseless allegations.

Without naming Congress President Rahul Gandhi, PM Modi said, ‘Congress lacks intentions and principles, its Leaders have no vision and everybody know this know

“The party and its friends have only one agenda – that of ‘Modi Hatao’,” he said.
