The polling on all the seven seats in the national capital are also underway where the BJP, Congress and the AAP are in a triangular fight.

Jirati was speaking at an election rally in Indore, where he shared the dais with Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.

In Ratlam, Modi alleged that the Congress has committed several scams but all they have to say is, "hua to hua".

He said as per the directions of the ECI, the strong room can be opened only in case of emergencies such as fire mishap, flood or quake, but it would be necessary to inform the ECI and take prior approval.

The BJP's Mamta Kale rebuffed the allegation and said that these are baseless charges levelled against Gautam Gambhir . It claimed that she was in a relationship with Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia .


Opinion polls say the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continues to be the frontrunner, but it is likely to return with fewer than the 282 seats it won in 2014.

Prime Minister Modi, however, did not reveal the names of the other leaders who constituted the two-and-a-half chief ministers.

At a recent rally Modi called Gandhi's late father, former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, "corrupt no. 1".

"He was only concerned about getting people to vote for him which is why he kept visiting poll booths himself and even failed to cast his vote yesterday in Bhopal", he said. "We will accept the people's mandate".

Pitroda on his part has accused the BJP of twisting the three words in Hindi on the riots to "distort facts, divide us (Congress) and hide their failures" and said things of the past are not relevant in this election.

He underlined that the Modi government had transformed India from being a terror-stricken country to one that enemies were now scared of. Here they need a lot of everything - better education, better health care, more reliable electricity water and functioning sewers.

Many in India like this couple in New Delhi said that it is important to cast one's vote. Saying that his government has brought development such as roads and electricity to villages and given benefits to farmers, he told a reporter on Friday, "The BJP will win more seats than last time, we will form a government with a clear majority and expand our presence in the country".
