Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday spoke exclusively to Republic TV and talked range of issues amidst the Lok Sabha elections.

The senior BJP leader said that the party's fate looked promising and said that the party's coalition NDA will win big in the Lok Sabha elections. 

"We will get more than what we had won in 2014 and NDA will get 2/3rd majority and BJP will get a clear majority"

He also slammed the Congress for its non-stop questioning of the country's Armed Forces as well as gaali politics.

"Those who question the Indian Forces, the country will not forgive them," he said. "No one had ever thought that Congress would be in a situation that its leader will hug a person who is against our self-respect," he added.

Singh reacted to Congress calling PM Modi's scheme 'jumla' and also about the many abuses by the grand old party's leaders

He said, "Let Congress call Modi's scheme 'jumla' as they are used to abusing."

On Tuesday, Home Minister Rajnath Singh filed his nomination papers from Lucknow, while Akhilesh Yadav-Mayawati alliance fielded Poonam Sinha, wife of newly joined Congress leader Shatrughan Sinha to contest from the Lok Sabha constituency from Uttar Pradesh, moments after her induction into the Samajwadi Party. 

The Congress pitted its candidate for Lucknow Acharya Pramod Krishnam against Singh.

Controversy brewed soon after as Shatrughan Sinha campaigned for his wife Poonam in Lucknow, leading to Krishnam asking the grand old party's leader to follow party protocol.
