Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will once again emerge victorious in the Lok Sabha elections 2019. In his first interview of the poll season, PM Modi said, "The country isn't against coalitions but it has seen 30 years of instability and now people wants a stable government. The people have decided that their would be once again a full majority government. I believe the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will once again emerge victorious with a full majority and our alliance partners would also get more seats than 2014."
Speaking about the alleged "match fixing" between him and his Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan in Pulwama attack, Modi said that his patriotism was beyond questioning and asked people to recognise people who doubt their own PM while praising Pakistani PM.
"No one in this country can doubt Narendra Modi's patriotism. No one can question it. They see statesmanship in Pakistan PM's statements and they doubt their own PM. The people should recognise these people," Modi told Rrepublic Bharat in the interview.
Taking a jab at the Opposition, the prime minister said that he was ready to debate on the gas connections provided and house build by his government.
"We can debate on the gas connections provided, house built and bank accounts opened with the Opposition. When I speak on progress, they change the topic and pick other issues. We are the government that works 24 hours and these are issues that matter to us but they keep talking about the same thing over and over again," he said.
