New Delhi: Union Minister Rajnath Singh, expressing confidence that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will win more seats than it did in 2014, on Tuesday said "a two-thirds majority for the NDA cannot be ruled out."

Rajnath Singh said the opposition should reveal who is their prime ministerial candidate and also took on the Congress for its leader Mani Shankar Aiyar justifying his "neech aadmi" jibe against the prime minister.

"I have reached a conclusion that BJP will win more seats in Lok Sabha polls than it did in 2014. Two-thirds majority for NDA also cannot be ruled out. The hope people had from the prime minister in the 2014 elections has turned into confidence this time," Rajnath Singh said in a press conference at the BJP headquarters in New Delhi.

"Last time, it was Modiji versus Sonia Gandhi/Manmohan Singh. This time it is Modiji versus whom? It is unknown. The opposition should not keep people in dark, should reveal its PM candidate," Rajnath Singh said.

Rajnath Singh also asked the Congress to respond to Mani Shankar Aiyar justifying his 2017 "neech aadmi" remark about the prime minister.

"Congress should give its response to Mani Shankar Aiyar's comment that his claim about Narendra Modi was correct," Rajnath Singh said.
