Expressing confidence that UPA will form the government again, Rahul Gandhi asserted that BJP's campaign "balloon" will burst like 'India Shining' in 2004 as he warned that Narendra Modi's coming to power would be damaging for the country.

Rahul, along with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, cautioned that Modi's ideology was against the idea of India and the Congress will fight in a determined manner to ensure that this ideology is defeated.

Releasing the party's manifesto here, they debunked the opinion polls which are predicting a dismal show by the UPA in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls and said everybody will be "surprised" when the election results come in.

On the upbeat campaign of NDA, Rahul said, "just like the 'India Shining' balloon exploded... I can say certainly the balloon will explode."

He said this will be particularly true in Uttar Pradesh where 80 seats are at stake.

He said BJP has the ability of carrying out campaigns like 'India Shining' but all should keep in mind that that campaign "evaporated" when the results came in 2004.

Attacking Modi, BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, Rahul said he had nothing against him as an individual but was opposed to his ideology which is against the idea of India.

"Modi represents an ideology which is exclusive," he said.
