Rewari (Har): BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s impact on voters has led to the rout of Congress in Assembly polls in the four states, rebel Congress MP Rao Inderjit Singh has said.
The MP from Gurgaon said Modi’s “tangible charisma would reveal itself more conspicuously during the coming Lok Sabha polls as BJP was discernibly leaping toward climax.”
Rao told reporters yesterday that while the outcome of the Delhi polls would influence the Haryana Assembly elections in a big way, the electorate of the state, unlike Delhi, was expected to give a clear mandate to a single party other than the Congress.
He said the charisma of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and that party’s star campaigner Rahul Gandhi was on the “wane”, and added that Modi’s rising popularity also influenced their electioneering in Delhi adversely.
He also asked AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to form government in Delhi with the help of Congress and fulfill the promises made to the people.
He was, however, quick to remark that if elections were to be held again, AAP could lose some support.
Regarding his own endeavours in the present political scenario in the state, Rao, who heads apolitical Haryana Insaaf Manch, said he was working to provide a strong alternative to the Congress in Haryana.
Earlier, he had made it clear that he will not contest any future elections on Congress ticket.
