"They thought even if we lose, we will help Third Front. Several Congress leaders made such statements. When they realised that it was damaging them, then Rahul 'bhaiyya' today tried to change it. They are shaken. They never thought that their house of cards will fall down like this," Modi said.
"You should recognise these people with malicious intentions. You should give mandate for a strong government. Send 300 lotuses (BJP symbol) to Lok Sabha," he added in a 3D address.
He also attacked Congress for aligning with Lalu Prasad. "You have brought Laluji out of jail. I tell you that you could empty all jails in India of such people and contest election with their help but you will still lose," he said.
Earlier in the day, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi ruled out the possibility of his party supporting the Third Front to form the government at the Centre.
"We will not support any front. We will get the required number (of seats)," Gandhi said while replying to queries on whether his party will explore post-election tie-ups to form the government.
Rahul's remarks are significant as they came a day after CPI(M) general secretary Prakash Karat said a repeat of the 1996-like situation is possible and the Congress may be forced to support a government of secular parties at the Centre to keep the BJP out of power.
Also, Samajwadi Party leaders have been claiming that they would be getting support of Congress in formation of Third Front government.
