Hazaribagh (Jharkhand) [ANI], May 6 (ANI): Jayant Sinha, the sitting MP and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from the Hazaribagh parliamentary constituency, on Monday, said that BJP is seeking to cross the 400 seat mark this time in Lok Sabha and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will comfortably form government in the Centre again.
"We have tried to win over the people with our work and dedication. I urge the people to come out and vote so that we can serve you again for the next five years. We are aiming for 400 plus and it is more than likely to come true, 'Fir Ek Baar Modi Sarkar'," Sinha said while talking to reporters at a polling booth before casting his vote.
Vinay Katiyar, former MP and the founder of Bajrang Dal, while echoing the same sentiment, added that Ram Temple will be built soon.
"The 'mahamilawati' people are trying to create a ruckus, but this will not happen and PM Modi will become the prime minister again. The elections are happening in a free and fair manner. Ram Mandir in Ayodhya will also be built soon," Katiyar told reporters in Ayodhya.
Polling is underway for the fifth phase of Lok Sabha elections in fifty-one seats from seven states- Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand Jammu and Kashmir.
Voters are also coming out in Jaipur (Rural) in Rajasthan where Congress party has fielded Olympian Krishna Poonia against Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, an Olympian and a union minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's cabinet.
Poonia alleged that her opponents are trying to confuse the public by spreading misinformation that she had left Congress a day before polls.
"I thank the people from my area for supporting me. This is a battle of the ideology, they (BJP leaders) unsuccessfully tried to use social media to spread misinformation about me leaving Congress through fake ids yesterday. I am confident about my victory but the decision rests with the voters," Poonia told ANI.
Meanwhile, her rival, Rathore expressed the confidence that BJP will once again form government at the Center as the people have seen the work done under PM Modi's rule.
"The people have made up their minds for 2019 and it is Modi which they have chosen. The last five years were just a trailer the work will accelerate now. In 2014 they had hopes it has now been replaced with a strong belief," Rathore said while talking to reporters.
After today's polling, two more phases of general elections will be held- on May 12 and 19 respectively. The counting of votes is scheduled for May 23. (ANI)
