NEW DELHI: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Lok Sabha MP Sakshi Maharaj predicted that there won’t be any elections in the country after the 2019 general elections.
Sachchidanand Hari Sakshi, popularly known as Sakshi Maharaj, speaking at Unnao in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday thanks to the “Modi tsunami” and said no elections required in 2024.
According to ANI, Sakshi Maharaj said, “Modi naam ki tsunami hai. Desh mein jagriti aayi hai. Mujhe lagta hai ki iss chunav ke baad 2024 mein chunaav nahi hoga, kewal yahi chunav hai. Iss desh ke liye pratyashi jitwane ka kaam karenge.”
“(Modi is a tsunami that has brought awakening in the country. I believe there would be no elections in 2024 after this election is done. This is the ultimate election. Will work to make the hopefuls win.)”
The Lok Sabha MP in a veiled attack said that the consequences “may not be positive” if BJP denies him a ticket to contest from the Unnao seat in the polls.
The 63-year-old saffron-clad lawmaker had won the 2014 general elections from Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao.
Polling for the Lok Sabha elections will be held in seven phases from April 11 to May 19. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
