Since last few weeks, a claim is going viral that the Modi government will win more seats than it won in 2014 Lok Sabha elections. This claim got further strengthened after the Bharatiya Janata Party released a slogan “Abki Baar 400 Ke Paar” (This time, the BJP will cross 400 seats).
Now one of the richest business Rakesh Jhunjhunwala has not just reiterated that PM Modi will come to power once again but has also said that the seat tally of the BJP will surprise everyone. He said “I would like that Narendra Modi becomes the Prime Minister of this country again. My personal judgement at this moment says that the BJP tally will surprise on the upside”.
Along with backing PM Modi, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala added that he wants a Ram Mandir in India. He stated “There is pride in India and Indianness, I am not saying Hindu and Hinduness, I am saying India and Indianness, so why should I not? And don’t you want a common civil code? Why should I not be allowed to own land in Jammu and Kashmir? The world is not going to end if one temple is made if you believe that Ram was born there. So I am an out and out BJP supporter”.
This is not the first time he predicted PM Modi’s re-election. In the year 2018, he had said twice that Congress party will be thrashed in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In July 2018 he stated, “I can write and give you one thing, BJP will form a government, with most likely Mr. Modi at the helm”.
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala is called the Warren Buffet of India and is the 54th richest Indian with a net worth of over 15,000 crores. He is not the only billionaire who backed PM Modi for 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Even the co-founder of Infosys Mr. Narayana Murthy had backed PM Modi in 2019 so that India’s growth story won’t face a setback.
