Lok Sabha polls 2024: PM sounds poll bugle in Jhabua, says ‘BJP alone will cross 370 seats’

Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday started BJP’s poll campaign from Madhya Pradesh’s Jhabua.

Speaking at a rally in the tribal-dominated district, PM Modi asked voters to ensure polling of an additional 370 votes in each booth, compared to the last elections, for the BJP to win 370 Lok Sabha seats. Notably, in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the BJP managed to win 303 seats.

In his speech, PM Modi exuded confidence in the Bharatiya Janata Party and said that the party will alone touch the mark of 370 seats in the Lok Sabha polls slated later this year.

He also said that he had come to Jhabua not to campaign for the Lok Sabha polls but as a ‘sevak’ (servant) of the people of Madhya Pradesh.

“Before I arrived here, I saw that there were discussions about my journey as well. Some people were saying that Modi would kick off the Lok Sabha battle from Jhabua in Madhya Pradesh,” the PM said at the tribal-dominated rally in Madhya Pradesh.

“I want to clarify that Modi hasn’t come for campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections. Modi has come as a sevak (servant) to express gratitude to the people of Madhya Pradesh…,” he added.

In his speech, PM Modi also hit out at the Grand Old Party and said, “Congress remembers villages, the poor and farmers only during elections”.

“For us tribal community is not a vote bank, they are the pride of our country,” the Prime Minister said.

During his visit to Jhabua, PM Modi also dedicated and laid the foundation stone of multiple development projects worth Rs 7,550 crore.

PM Modi’s tribal outreach campaign in the state is significant as Madhya Pradesh has the six highest Lok Sabha seats reserved for tribals.
