Shah brushed aside any apprehension hovering over a NDA win in the nation and said Modi would definitely become the country’s next Prime Minister.

“This entire election seems to be Modi versus all. The NDA will get more than 300 seats and Narendra Modi will be the next PM,” Shah said.

Shah also claimed that the BJP had no issues in the deployment of paramilitary forces in polling booths in Varanasi, adding it is important for free and fair elections in the holy city.

Urging the Election Commission to take steps to ensure free and fair elections, Shah said the poll body should not be scared of anyone, cheekily taking a jibe at the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh.

“We have no objection to deployment of paramilitary forces in polling booths in Varanasi. It is needed for free and fair elections,” Shah said.

“EC should not be scared of anyone. But they should also take steps to ensure free and fair elections,” he added.

Taking a swipe at the SP, Shah questioned why there has been no deployment of paramilitary forces in Azamgarh from where Mulayam Singh Yadav is fighting the election.

While speaking on Mayawati’s refusal to support a Modi-led government at the Centre after Lok Sabha elections, Shah said the Bahujan Samaj Party chief and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had supported the Congress on issue concerning Robert Vadra.

However, Shah maintained that the BJP does not believe in political untouchability, hinting towards a possible alliance with regional satraps after the results.
