Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the day when Israel is voting to elect its next government; India will begin the voting process for its general elections shortly.

Most of the polling agencies that released surveys in the last four days said Modi got a boost from recent tension with arch enemy Pakistan after a militant group based there killed 40 Indian policemen in the disputed region of Kashmir in February.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray will share a stage on Tuesday while campaigning for their alliance in the 17th Lok Sabha elections.

The BJP has consistently advocated an end to Kashmir's special constitutional status, which prevents outsiders from buying property there, arguing that such laws have hindered its integration with the rest of India. "Your trust is my biggest accomplishment in last five years", Modi told Maharashtra.

The party also reiterated its long-held desire to abolish Kashmir's autonomous status.

The prime minister said that the Congress manifesto speaks for Pakistan when it says that Article 370 will never be scrapped. "Pakistan is also saying what Congress is saying".

Modi's right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has come under fire over its handling of the Indian economy, particularly its failure to create jobs for the millions of youths coming on the labour market each year and the severe debts hitting farmers.

The party shared a screenshot of one of points in the party manifesto, which reads: "Women's security will be given more priority". "They are fighting with a narrow mindset", he said.

Shah said the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), like the Congress, was a party of family rule and claimed that only the BJP can work for the country's development and make it strong.

The BJP pledged to simplify the goods and services tax, which disrupted businesses and hurt growth when Modi introduced it in 2017.

Simultaneously, voting for single phase Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh and for 28 of 147 seats in Odisha will also take place on Thursday.
