"This would be perhaps the first election after the independence, the first instance of post-independence era, when not a single candidate of Congress party would be elected from some states," Modi said.
"There won't be a single region or the state where Congress will be able to reach double digit. They will not get even ten seats in any of the states," he predicted addressing a rally of party workers before veteran BJP leader LK Advani filed his nomination from Gandhinagar constituency.
Congress will face its biggest rout since the emergency, Modi claimed, adding this time "people have decided the verdict in advance".
Asking cadres to work for Advani's victory, he asked them to focus on each and every booth. "I will rather be happiest if we win at every polling booth," he said.
Modi later accompanied Advani to the election authority's office for filing the nomination.

Meanwhile, the veteran BJP leader filed his nomination papers from Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat for the upcoming general elections. He was accompanied by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

Advani, 86, said he never thought of not contesting from his traditional Lok Sabha seat of Gandhinagar and recalled his long association with Gujarat.

Advani had earlier expressed his desire to shift his constituency from Gandhinagar to Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, but decided to contest from Gandhinagar later, following intervention of RSS and the party.

The BJP and RSS were of the view that Advani by not contesting from Gujarat would send wrong signals and he should contest from the seat he has been representing for the last several years.
