New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday hit back at Congress President Rahul Gandhi over his dare that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lose his Varanasi seat if the Opposition unites for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The BJP stated that instead of worrying about the BJP, the Congress should be concerned about the seats Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi will be contesting from. Rahul Gandhi on Sunday exuded confidence that under a United Opposition, there was a chance that the BJP might lose the 2019 Lok Sabha Assembly Elections and went on to state that Prime Minister Narendra Modi might even lose his Varanasi seats

"In the kind of circumstances prevailing today, both Rahul and his mother, Sonia Gandhi, will lose from their seats, Amethi and Raebareli, respectively. They have done nothing in their constituencies and the people's disappointment with them is growing," BJP spokesperson Anil Baluni told PTI. Rahul Gandhi, speaking at an informal media interaction, pegged his confidence on opposition unity adding that if the Congress, SP and the BSP were united against him even Modi might lose from Varanasi. The Congress President said he was confident about roping in and managing alliance partners despite their varied personal and regional aspirations and predicted for the current ruling dispensation, a “collapse” not “seen in many years.”

Pointing at the opposition unity efforts in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and by the DMK, the Trinamool Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party in Tamil Nadu, Gandhi asked, "Where are they (BJP) going to win seats? And in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Punjab. We will take it over. You are going to see a collapse of the style you haven't seen in many years," he said.
