While taking the oath that is to be made by a candidate for election to Parliament, PM said: 
"I, A.B., having been nominated as a candidate to fill a seat in the council of States (or the House of the People) do swear in the name of God/solemnly affirm that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of India as by law established and that I will uphold the sovereignty and integrity of India."

Expressing his gratitude to the party cadres ahead of filing the nomination, the Prime Minister said:

"There are two sides of this election: One is to win Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency, this work has been done yesterday. Kashi is already won. Now the other work is left and that is to win the polling booth. There should not be one polling booth where the flag of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) falls flat. Today after filing the papers, you have to do nothing, Modi wins or loses, whatever happens to Modi, Ganga Maiyya will see, but any worker of the polling booths should not lose. I won't feel bad if I lose but if BJP worker's hard -work loses, I will feel bad."
