“On how many seats are you contesting? 22. You need more than 270 to form the government. What are you guaranteeing?

Responding to opposition allegations that the BJP plans to change the Constitution and remove caste-based reservations, he said, “Since (Congress leader) Rahul Gandhi came into public life, he has Lying out loud has made the basic ideology of Congress. Modi ji became a minister with full majority. could have stopped?”
