Lok Sabha elections 2019: Congress has edge, will form next government, says Mallikarjun Kharge

Mumbai: Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on Friday said his party would form the next government at the Centre with the support of like-minded parties. Speaking to reporters here, Kharge said there was an undercurrent against the BJP which has given the Congress an edge in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls.

“What feedback I have got from our sources suggests that we have got an edge and other parties too- except the BJP- have got an advantage when compared to the election in 2014. The BJP and its allies are lagging behind,” he said. “There is a large chunk of invisible voters who are angry with the draconian policies of the BJP. They form a huge undercurrent against the Modi regime.

Let the result come, we are sure to form the government. If need be, we will take support of like-minded parties,” Kharge said. He refuted charges of infighting in the Congress or that party chief Rahul Gandhi had sought to cancel his Mumbai trip because of it. – Agencies
