New Delhi:

With the Lok Sabha elections just few days away, the campaigning by political parties is at its full swing. While the Congress has made its biggest pre-poll promise of minimum income guarantee, the BJP is banking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign.

Several BJP bigwigs, including party chief Amit Shah and Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Sushma Swaraj, will take part in 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign via video-conferencing in Delhi today.

Meanwhile, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi will address a joint rally with former prime minister H D Deve Gowda at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre. The former will also address election rallies in Andhra Pradesh’s Vijayawada and Anantpur, followed by another one in Karnataka.

On the other hand, BJP chief Amit Shah will address rallies in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat and Nagina.

Congress leaders visit Ayodhya but do not bow to God, says Union Minister Smriti Irani.

UP CM Yogi Adityanath on Congress President Rahul Gandhi: Congress should be punished for its deeds. People of Amethi will give a befitting reply for deceiving them. And I feel, that fear is forcing him to migrate.

The Congress releases names of two more candidates for Lok Sabha Elections 2019. Ghulam Ahmad Mir and K Muraleedharam have been fielded from Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag and Kerala's Vadakara Lok Sabha constituencies.

Opinion Poll: While the parties of Akhilesh Yadav, Mayawati and Jayant Sinha may win 39 per cent of the votes, Amit Shah-Anupriya Patel alliance may end up with 37 per cent of the total votes. Whereas the Congress may bag only 13 per cent votes followed by Others (12 per cent) in Uttar Pradesh.

Uttar Pradesh Opinion Poll: As far as the vote share is concerned, the News Nation opinion poll predicts that the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) is likely to defeat the BJP-AD alliance in Uttar Pradesh.

PM Modi in Delhi: I convey my greetings to all 'Chowkidars' across the nation who have joined this Main Bhi Chowkidar program.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh: The aim of 'NYAY' scheme is to make minimum income in India Rs 12,000 a month, in the 21st century, we do not want a single Indian to earn less than Rs 12, 000 a month, ‘NYAY’ is a surgical strike on  poverty.

We are all Chowkidars, committed to a strong and prosperous India: PM Modi at Main Bhi Chowkidar campaign.

West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC Chief Mamata Banerjee arrives at Visakhapatnam, to attend Andhra Pradesh CM and TDP Chief N Chandrababu Naidu's public rally in the city on Sunday.

Tej Bahadur Yadav, Independent candidate from Varanasi Parliamentary Constituency: I will ask PM, 'you had made promises, what all did you do till date? Tell us.' It's an equal fight, on one side you have 'asli chowkidaar' and on the other you have 'nakli chowkidaar.

A different coalition has happened in UP, 'bua-bhatija and dada' have come together. Isn't Ajit Singh at an age where he should be a grandfather or a great-grandfather? They think they can defeat BJP, include Rahul baba and Priyanka Vadra too, you won't be able to defeat BJP: Amit Shah.

This is western UP,earlier when people used to go somewhere with bullock cart,their cattle used to end up in illegal slaughter houses. Who doesn't know what happened in Visara? How SP govt suppressed sentiments here? When our govt came, we shut all illegal slaughter houses, says Adityanath.

CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury on Rahul Gandhi contesting from Wayanad: We are very clear, this election is an important one, that will decide whether a secular democracy will survive or not. Removing BJP is our priority.

Union Minister Maneka Gandhi on Rahul Gandhi contesting from Amethi and Wayanad: All I know is we will win from both the seats.

I read on WhatsApp that Rahul Gandhi has run towards Kerala, leaving Amethi behind. Why has he escaped to Kerala? All of you know that this time Rahul Gandhi is done for in Amethi. So he is going to Kerala in a bid to win on the politics of polarisation, says Amit Shah.

I and Congress party will deliver the NYAY (Nyuntam Aay Yojana) scheme like we delivered MGNREGA, White Revolution and Green Revolution, says Rahul Gandhi.

Rs 72,000 a year....I'm not Mr Modi, I don't lie. He said he'll give you Rs 15 Lakh, that was a lie...Govt of India cannot give you Rs 15 Lakh in a bank account but Govt of India can give Rs 72,000 a year to the poorest people in India, says Rahul Gandhi.

PM Narendra Modi dismantled everything the UPA
Government had done. He destroyed the pillars of MGNREGA and Food Security Act, says Rahul Gandhi.

Mr Modi has been Prime Minister for 5 years and he has not fulfilled this commitment and frankly I am surprised that the parties in Andhra Pradesh aren't aggressively pushing for Mr Modi to give Andhra what it has been promised, says Rahul Gandhi in Vijayawada.

It is not only a commitment made by Congress&Manmohan Singh ji, it's a commitment made by the country to Andhra Pradesh. It's our commitment that we'll give special status to Andhra Pradesh the moment we come to power in Delhi, says Rahul Gandhi in Vijayawada.

To pick a candidate like Rahul Gandhi against Left means that Congress is going to target the Left in Kerala. This is something which we will strongly oppose and in this election we will work to ensure the defeat of Rahul Gandhi in Wayanad, says Prakash Karat.

Why did Modi ji leave Gujarat and contest from Varanasi? Was he not confident in Gujarat? These are immature and childish comments. She(Smriti Irani) will complete a hattrick of losses, says Randeep Surjewala.
