Joshi also expressed confidence in BJP's victory in the 2024 Lok Sabha election, stating that the BJP would attain a full majority in the Lok Sabha election.

Furthermore, he expressed confidence in the BJP's victory in Rajasthan in the Lok Sabha election. "We have full faith that in the state as well as in Rajasthan, the BJP is getting a clear and full majority... In a while, they will speak on EVMs: when they (Congress) win in any state, the EVMs are fine, but when they lose, they raise objections against the EVMs.

Several exit polls have predicted that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will secure a clean majority in Rajasthan. An aggregate of exit polls shows that out of 25 Lok Sabha seats, the NDA is predicted to win 18-23 seats, while the Congress-led INDIA bloc is expected to win 2-7 seats.
