Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s presence in Maharashtra for the poll campaign means the BJP is going to win “100 per cent”, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Sunday. Addressing a poll rally in Umarkhed, Adityanath said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was committed to elimination of terrorism. Praising Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah for abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, he said the duo has established the concept of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’ (One India, Superior India) through the move.
