Addressing reporters at a press conference in New Delhi, Shah rebutted the Congress party’s allegations of a hypothetical constitutional overhaul should the BJP secure a parliamentary supermajority.

He clarified that despite his confidence in the BJP’s electoral prospects, with indications from the preceding two phases suggesting a significant victory, any such victory would not translate into constitutional amendments.

He underscored that the BJP’s previous majorities in 2014 and 2019 were utilized responsibly, focusing on critical issues such as Article 370, the eradication of outdated British-era laws, the abolition of Triple Talaq, and combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

Shah accused the Congress of propagating falsehoods to sow discord and incite unrest, particularly regarding reservations for Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), and Other Backward Classes (OBC). He criticized the circulation of manipulated videos, including edited videos featuring himself, as desperate attempts by the opposition to tarnish the electoral atmosphere.

In response to mounting allegations of sexual misconduct against Prajwal Revanna, a sitting MP from Hassan, of Janta Dal (S) Shah vehemently condemned such behaviour and assured swift action. Shah affirmed the BJP’s unwavering support for women’s issues and pledged zero tolerance for instances of sexual harassment under Modi’s leadership.

However, he criticized the Congress-led Karnataka government for its purported inaction, demanding accountability, and thorough investigations into the matter. He urged Priyanka Gandhi to hold her own party’s government accountable on pertinent issues and assured cooperation from the Home Ministry if sought.

Directing his criticism of Rahul Gandhi, Shah deplored the perceived decline in political discourse since Gandhi assumed leadership of the party.
