Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Praful Patel expressed the nation's sentiment, indicating that the mood favours Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership and development plan before voting begins in the first phase of the 2024 general election.

After voting at a polling booth in Gondia, Maharashtra, Patel expressed trust in Modi's leadership, citing the delivery of promised initiatives over the last decade. He said that the nation has developed and become vibrant under Modi's leadership, while also admitting lingering challenges and the path forward to overcome them, reported ANI.

"The mood of the nation is for development. The mood of the nation is for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership. All the schemes that he has promised in the last ten years, he has delivered. The country has become a vibrant nation. There will always be problems. You cannot say that all problems have been solved but the direction is to solve the problems and overcome them. This is a big change," Praful Patel told ANI after casting his vote at a polling booth in Gondia.

Per the report, voting for first phase Lok Sabha Elections 2024 is currently underway for five of 48 seats in Maharashtra and the constituencies--Chandrapur, Bhandara-Gondiya, Gadchiroli-Chimur, Ramtek, and Nagpur--as part of 102 constituencies across 21 states and Union Territories.
