In his message to the party's booth level workers, he asked them not to get "distracted by what the opposition is saying about credibility and the low-level comments they are making" against the BJP, Ananth Kumar said.
"We are now ruling 19 states," Modi told the meeting and referred to Indira Gandhi's time when the Congress was in power in 18 states.
