Lok Sabha elections 2019: With only three days to go for the fifth phase of voting, several political rallies were held across the country. Major political leaders held rallies and meetings across Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. 

Prime Minister addressed rallies in Rajasthan. At a rally in Hindon, PM Modi ramped up his attack against the Congress, saying the party is distraught about Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar being declared as an international terrorist during the election and is questioning the timing of the announcement.

He alleged that the opposition party is unhappy with India's security situation.

Instead of celebrating the decision of the United Nations (UN) designating the JeM chief as an international terrorist, the opposition party is questioning its timing, the prime minister said.

"Should the UN ask the Congress, should it consult 'Madam' or 'Naamdar', before declaring him as a global terrorist?," he asked the gathering, in a mocking reference to UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Congress president

BJP president Amit Shah was scheduled to hold three public rallies in Jharkhand but they were later cancelled owing to bad weather conditions. 

Congress President also campaigned in Rajasthan.
