"Modi's appeal to people to vote shows his nervousness" - Congress

The Congress on Friday claimed that the PM Narendra Modi's appeal to people to vote in large numbers shows that he is nervous and is sensing defeat after the first three phases of the Lok Sabha polls. Congress spokesperson Rajiv Shukla said "Our assessment is also the same that in the three phases, the BJP's position is really bad. They are definitely not getting the mandate they were expecting." He further claimed that the PM had to make the appeal as the BJP was losing big in the first three phases of the polls.
