Priyanka said it was 'very clear' that the Bharatiya Janata Party will face defeat in Lok Sabha polls as people are ‘angry and distressed’ and will convey their sentiments through voting. "There is anger among people, and they are under distress. Modi ji, instead of talking about real issues, has been talking about random things. And, now, they will express their anger against this government through voting," the Congress general secretary said. Photograph: Manvender Vashist/PTI Photo
