Modi's alliance to win slim majority in Indian election, poll shows

Modi has said he will retain power with a bigger mandate than before, while Congress says its plan for annual handouts of 72,000 rupees ($1,034) to the poorest families will help fuel its comeback.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Tuesday wrote to the Election Commission to complain against Narendra Modi's comments at a rally earlier in the day, where he urged first-time voters to dedicate their votes to the defence forces in the wake of the Pulwama attack and the Balakot air strike.

"At least one point in BJP's manifesto reflects their true intentions", the party said in a tweet with the hashtag "BJP Jumla Manifesto".

"I never thought I would see what is happening in India right now", said the former worldwide cricket star.

"Remember the good old days before 2014 when Indians had jobs and a PM that didn't lie to them", Congress said on Twitter, with a hashtag calling the BJP manifesto a gimmick. "Had pre-Independence Congress leaders acted wisely, "this Pakistan" would not have been created".

Khan said there was still the possibility if the polls turn against Modi in the next few weeks that India could take some further military action against Pakistan.

"Even a child would know what happen to the second pilot", he added.

Nuclear-armed neighbours Pakistan and India both claim Kashmir in full but rule in part. "Does it suit you?"

PM Modi said those who talk of a separate PM and secession of Jammu and Kashmir are the ones whom the nation had trusted once. Thackeray was banned from exercising his franchise in the late nineties for six years after he was found indulging in "corrupt practice by seeking votes in the name of religion" at a public rally.

"They say chowkidar chor hai; but from whom are note bundles seized", Modi targets Congress.

Amit Shah, the head of the Hindu nationalist BJP party, along with other top leaders released the party's manifesto for the upcoming elections that begin on Thursday.

PM Modi also highlighted that while opposition parties have put most of their energies in the last five years in finding flaws with the NDA government, he has ensured that constructive work takes place.
