Hours after filing his nomination from South Delhi seat for Lok Sabha elections, Congress candidate and boxer Vijender Singh dismissed reports of 'Modi wave' and said the stomachs of unemployed don't get filled with 'jumlas' while adding that people have seen the real face of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Talking to NDTV, Vijender Singh said, "When you praise someone you don't know what is behind the mask. 2014 was the biggest win for the BJP." He also accused PM Modi of lying to the masses.
"15-20 lakh to waise hi khate me aa jaaenge (Rs. 15-20 lakh will be accrued to the accounts of the poor). I still have the YouTube video. It is a lie. People, especially the poor ones, believed him," he added. The Congress candidate from South Delhi seat further said, "He can't fulfill his promise."
The boxer also spoke about why he chose the Congress. "My vision, my thought, my thinking are similar to Congress. They have vision, they have planning, they have educated people, they have good leaders, they talk about future, they talk about good things" he said.
It is to be noted that Congress on Monday announced candidates for Delhi. Former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit is among the candidates the Congress named. The other candidates are Arvinder Singh Lovely from East Delhi, JP Agarwal from Chandni Chowk, Rajesh Lilothia from North West Delhi and Mahabal Mishra from West Delhi.
Polling in Delhi will be held on May 12 while the results will be declared on May 23.
