BJP parliamentarian and motor-mouth Sakshi Maharaj has said there will be no general elections in the country after Prime Minister Narendra Modi wins this year’s polls. “I appeal to you to vote in overwhelming numbers this time because there won’t be an election in 2024,” he told a meeting in his constituency of Unnao on Thursday evening. Last week, he had told journalists that the BJP would pay heavily if it denied him a ticket this time. “Everybody knows that the country will flourish as long as Narendra Modi is in charge. But nobody can defeat Modi,” he said._BJP president Amit Shah had last year told a party national executive that “once the BJP wins the 2019 elections, no one can throw us out in 50 years”.
