State Congress spokesperson Hoshiyari Lal Sharma has said the Modi wave is fading away as the BJP suffered a jolt in Rajasthan, where it could win just one of the four seats and managed to bag only one seat in Uttar Pradesh bypolls.

Sharma, who is Congress candidate from Sirsa segment for the October-15 assembly polls, was interacting with people at Ding village on Tuesday. He said people have discarded the saffron party and they are coming back to the Congress because the Narendra Modi government has failed to meet their expectations.

"The BJP had made false promises to people to get their votes. After forming the government at the Centre it failed to live up to the expectations of people," Sharma added.

The senior Congress leader said the BJP will not be able to lure people this time and the Congress will form government for third consecutive time under the leadership of Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

Sharma added this is a jolt to the Vasundhara Raje government in Rajasthan as the Congress wrested three assembly seats of Weir, Nasirabad and Surajgarh from the ruling BJP, which could retain only the Kota seat. "Now it has become clear that the BJP did not succeed in fooling people again."

"People are fed up with the BJP government in just 100 days. In Punjab, Karnataka and Bihar bypolls the BJP has faced defeat," Sharma said.

"The Haryana BJP has been riding on the Modi wave and dreaming to get clear mandate in the state, but the reality is that Modi wave is gone and people will show their trust in the Congress again," Sharma added.
