"India will replace one of the top three countries of the world," he said. Singh said India's economy is growing at a fast pace. "The country was ranked ninth in top 10 countries of the world in 2014 and figures reveal that India became the fastest growing (major) economy after Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government came into power (that year)," he said.

Singh exuded confidence that the BJP will form the government in Rajasthan for the fourth consecutive term in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. In Jhalrapatan, Raje is contesting against Manvendra Singh, who quit the BJP and joined the Congress ahead of the assembly election. Raje formed government in the state with a massive majority in 2013.
