‘For the first time, there’s pro-incumbency wave in country’: PM Modi in Varanasi
Varanasi goes to polls on May 19, the last round of seven-phase elections. The PM urged the workers to turn Varanasi elections into model exercise, forcing experts to make it a case study. (News Agencies) New Delhi: Prime Minister Narenda Modi, speaking to BJP workers before filing nomination papers from Varanasi, said there was an unprecedented pro-incumbency wave in the country and urged partymen to not be arrogant. “Because of the hard work of workers, there is huge enthusiasm from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. First time there is a pro incumbancy wave in the elections. Everywhere people are saying, ‘abki baar…’” said PM Modi a day after his mega roadshow saw a huge turnout in Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency. Varanasi goes to polls on May 19, the last round of seven-phase elections. Taking a swipe at the Congress, the PM advised workers to not be arrogant “because those who showed arrogance were reduced to 40 seats from 400 seats”. The PM urged the workers to turn Varanasi elections into model exercise, forcing experts to make it a case study. In his tips for the workers, the PM asked them to make sure women came out in large numbers. “Make sure women voters are 5 percent more than men.” He also asked voters to target first-time voters, to welcome them with sweets. “Download Narendra Modi app and use it to woo first-time voters,” he said. On a lighter note, he gave tips to workers on reducing poll expenses by visiting voters at their homes and partaking food, reading papers and watching TV – all free of cost.
