Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia on Sunday spoke to mediapersons after casting his vote for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Exuding confidence, he said that the UPA will come to power with full majority.
"During the festival of democracy, I have full faith that people will vote for the Congress based on what we have promised for the country. Not only the Congress but the UPA will win with full majority. And based on that we will uproot the work of the BJP government did which was to do away with the country's aspirations and bring a government focused on development. The NDA has no agenda, no leaders, they have appealed for votes based on just one leader," he said.
Watch the leader speak to the media below:

On Saturday, Congress government in Madhya Pradesh left hugely embarrassed after a farmer during a meeting with Jyotiraditya Scindia confronted him over the loan waiver promise. Rahul Gandhi and Kamal Nath had ahead of the state assembly elections promised loan waivers to farmers within 10 days of being voted to power. The promise has not yet been fulfilled and Kamal Nath too has admitted the same.
As seen in the video, a farmer has confonted Jyotiraditya Scindia about the promise. Amid the chants of 'Jyotiraditya Zindabad', the farmer stands up and repeatedly tries to question Scindia, but he is asked to sit down and told he will be allowed to speak later. He stood up when Scindia spoke about the loan waiver promise. The farmer said that police officials were after farmers who had defaulted on loans.
