The BJP would win more than 300 seats in the Lok Sabha elections and get a full majority, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah on Friday, even as Congress president Rahul Gandhi said separately he would not "prejudge" the results.
"The people are going to bless us again," said Modi at a press conference in Delhi where he didn't take questions.
Shah, while answering journalists' questions, defended his party's decision to field Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused in the Malegaon bomb blasts case, as its candidate in Bhopal.
Gandhi, who was meanwhile speaking to the media at the Congress office in Delhi, said his party had dismantled the idea of Narendra Modi in the past five years.
Gandhi also said that the Election Commission's role in elections had been "biased" and it had issued orders keeping in mind Modi's schedule.
