The seniour BJP leader Amit Shah suggested, ‘Even if the prevailing dip of the market is spurred on by polls related assumptions, consider buying stocks before June 4… they are projected to bounce back powerfully.’

It’s not strange for stock markets to fluctuate and should not be linked to the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, said Union Home Minister Amit Shah on May 13. “There is no association between poll results and the market performance,” Shah told NDTV Profit in an interview.

Amit Shah added that speculation by investors could have caused volatility but he immediately denied it and expressed confidence about the future of the market and BJP’s chances of winning in general election later this year. “Even if there has been some weakness due to speculation buy stocks before June 4…they are expected to rise considerably.”

Earlier in an interview with Network18, Amit Shah said that Indian economy and stock market have improved significantly under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “While FIIs were net sellers, Indian mutual funds (MFs) have been very strong supporters of the market. The PLI scheme has made India a global hub for manufacturing.
