"Till now, there was a Modi wave in Uttar Pradesh. But now, as he has filed his nomination, this wave has turned into
a tsunami. It will help the party in Uttar Pradesh as well as Bihar and in other states", said Modi's close aide and BJP leader Amit Shah.
"After coming to Varanasi, I felt nobody has sent me nor have I come here. I am here because Maa Ganga has called me. I feel like a small child on a mother’s lap. I pray to God to give me the strength so that I can serve this city", said BJP's PM candidate Narendra Modi.
"I don’t think there is any Modi wave; it is the media’s creation. The country has not been swept by it... I don’t think Congress is losing ground. Wait for the results on May 16. We will win a majority", said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
"Narendra Modi says make him the guard of the country... But if this happens, he will again promote an industrialist like Adani, whereas Congress thinks that not one, but several industrialists should be produced", said Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi.
"The debt of the Gujarat govt stands at Rs 1.75 lakh crore... But the most surprising thing is that those who earn more than Rs 11 a day are not considered poor by the Gujarat government", said Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
