India may not have elections if Modi re-elected, may go China way: Gehlot

NEW DELHI: India may not see another election if Narendra Modi is re-elected as prime minister, Rajasthan Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot has claimed, suggesting the country may go, electorally, the China and Russia way.

Gehlot also said the Constitution, democracy and the entire country was in danger under Modi, who he said would “do anything” to get back to power. People felt he could even go to war with Pakistan to achieve this goal, the senior Congress leader said.

Dubbing Modi a “good actor”, Gehlot said he could do much better in Bollywood and would have left his indelible mark in acting. He also alleged Modi was a “master in marketing false promises”.

“If people re-elect Modi, then there is no surety on whether elections will be held in the country or not. ‘Chunav honge bhi, aur nahin bhi honge…jaise China, Russia mein hota hai’ (Elections will be held in the country and yet not be held, like what happens in China, Russia),” Gehlot said during an interaction with reporters.

“Modi ji has done very good marketing,” he also said, alleging the Prime Minister is creating a misconception in the minds of people about the Congress. (AGENCIES)
