Arun Jaitley on Saturday said that those who had parted ways with BJP would regret their decision following the general elections later this year.Taking an apparent swipe at JD(U), the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha,
“They will regret the decision to part ways with us and ask themselves as to why they had done so,” Jaitley told BJP workers at a state-level function here without, however, identifying any party.
The event had been organised as part of the drive to collect iron and related material for construction of a statue of independent India’s first Home Minister, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, in Gujarat. The statue is the brainchild of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
“We did not walk away from our alliance [with JD(U)], but the decision (leading to the ending of the partnership) will nonetheless benefit us and we will perform impressively in Bihar,” Jaitley said.
The senior BJP MLA in Bihar Assembly, Ashwani Chaube, will not have to carry out his threat to resign from the House as BJP will do well in the general elections on 40 seats in Bihar, Jaitey added.

Jaitley sought to downplay the threat to BJP from Congress or a likely Third Front configuration, saying that Congress does not inspire confidence among the people while the Third Front was a “losers’ front”.
“The general elections will prove whether Congress has more votes or hoardings,” he said.
