Who got Hafiz Saeed named as a global terrorist? Have you forgotten Lakhvi? Two people were named as global terrorists when Congress was in power, Masood Azhar is not the first person: P Chidambaram
We started the process in 2009 to name Masood Azhar as global terrorist, 10 years later process is complete. Mr Modi is only talking about last scene of the story, it's like going to a movie & only looking at the last scene, what about the earlier scenes?: P Chidambaram
Nitish Ji removed 'Lalten' (RJD's symbol) with hard work & provided electricity to every household. They are trying to push you back in the 'lalten' era but Nitish ji & his team is working to illuminate every household with the light of LED bulbs: PM Modi in Valmiki Nagar, Bihar.
But people with the mentality to separate the country divided Andhra and Telangana. It has been 5 years since the separation of both the states. Although Andhra and Telangana speak Telugu they can't see each other eye to eye: PM Modi in Bihar's Ramnagar
During Atal Ji's tenure three states were formed. Jharkhand was carved out of Bihar, Chhattisgarh was carved out of Madhya Pradesh&Uttarakhand was carved out of Uttar Pradesh. These three states were separated cordially: PM Modi in Ramnagar

For the first time Amethi is feeling that development is possible here as well. Even after making members of Gandhi family their representative for so many years, there were villages which didn't have electricity. They received electricity only after Modi ji came: Amit Shah in Amethi.

Lt General (Retd) DS Hooda on Congress's claim '6 surgical strikes were carried out during UPA tenure: Call it surgical strikes, call it cross border operations, they have been carried out in the past by the Army. I'm not aware of exact dates & areas that have been brought out.
Our work culture is to decide a goal and work towards fulfilling that. The working culture of the "Mahamalivati coalition" and NDA is quite different from each other. We want to take the government out of Delhi, while the Mahamalivatis are desperate to come to Delhi in the greed of the power: PM Modi
Chandigarh Nodal Officer has issued show-cause notice to BJP's Kirron Kher, stating'you have shared video on Twitter account which shows children being used for campaign through slogans 'Vote for Kirron Kher'&'Abki baar Modi sarkar.' Admin has demanded reply within 24 hrs.
I want to thank you for supporting us in 2014 and now we want your blessings for the next 5 years, says PM Modi in Basti.
PM Narendra Modi in Pratapgarh: Na main gira aur na meri ummeedon ke minar gire, par kuch log mujhe girane mein kayi baar gire. (neither i fall, nor the minrates of my hopes but some people fell in their attempt to fall me.)
Modi accuses Rahul Gandhi of favouring his former business partner in getting defence offshore contracts.
"Today I read that during UPA one of naamdar's business partners got defence offset contracts. Apni sarkar, dost bhi apna aur raksha sauda bhi bada yaani naamdar ke liye malai ka poora intezam tha."
Meanwhile, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot: Congress campaign has been very good and well managed. Due to which PM Modi and Amit Shah are focusing on Rajasthan and campaigning continuously. PM is doing three meetings in a day which means they are nervous now.
As per our internal assessment, BJP losing in LS polls: Rahul Gandhi.
Rahul Gandhi: The Army,Air Force or Navy are not personal properties of Narendra Modi ji like he thinks. When he says that surgical strikes during UPA were done in video games then he is not insulting Congress but the Army.
The biggest issue right now is unemployment and the way Modi ji has destroyed the economy. Country is asking that Modi ji you promised us 2 crore jobs,what about that? He doesn't speak a word on jobs or farmers as he has nothing to say, says Rahul Gandhi in press meet.
