Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an election rally at Kakdwip in West Bengal. He accused the ruling Trinamool Congress of giving away rights of 'original' OBCs to Muslims by issuing false caste certificates.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma claimed that Odisha was hit by a saffron "tsunami" and there is no doubt about the BJP forming government in the state. He said that he had witnessed a similar experience in Chhattisgarh where there was a small wave first and later it converted into a tsunami when the election came to an end.

On the penultimate day of the campaign for the seventh and final phase of the Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to campaign in Odisha. He will address an election rally in Mathurapur in South 24 Parganas district, West Bengal today morning. He will then travel to Odisha, where he is scheduled to address three public meetings in Mayurbhanj, Balasore and Kendrapara.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh claimed that India's unemployment rate is the lowest among big countries. He also claimed that inflation was higher whenever the Congress governed at the Centre. He made the remarks at election rallies in Punjab's Ferozepur and Anandpur Sahib parliamentary constituencies. He argued that whenever the Congress governed, inflation increased manifold. He asserted that the opposition is spreading falsehoods on unemployment and inflation.
