New Delhi: The Congress will be confined to two digits when election results are announced May 16, BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi said Saturday.

“They (Congress) are making efforts to cross the 100-seat mark, but I think they will be decimated to two digits,” Modi said in an interview to TV channel Aaj Tak.

The Bharatiya Janata Party leader said that ever since the election was announced, senior leaders of the Congress started fleeing the battleground.

“They had neither the determination to put up a good fight, much less any hope to win it,” Modi said.

He credited the BJP’s plank of good governance and development of going down well with the people who, he hoped, would give him a “decisive mandate”.

“I think people will give a mandate for the most stable and strong government in the last 20-25 years,” Modi said.
