LIE: In 2019, they (Congress) have the record of contesting the lowest number of seats in their entire political history


Modi Lies / Saturday, April 27th, 2019

Once again PM Modi did not refrain from giving out fake information in an interview. His claim that Congress is contesting the lowest seats in its political history is clearly false. The following table provides year wise data on the seats contested by Congress. The lowest number of seats, since 1996, were contested in 2004 and the Congress still managed to form the government.

YEAR NUMBER OF SEATS CONTESTED
2019 424
2014 464
2009 440
2004 417
1999 453
1998 477
1996 529
