Launching a scathing attack on Rahul Gandhi, Shiv Sena on Tuesday said the Congress vice president’s dream of victory in the Lok Sabha elections is like filling gas in balloons with holes.
“It’s hilarious that Congress, which can’t find candidates, is claiming to win more than 200 seats. (There is) anti-Congress wave in country, no one wants Congress ticket,” Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
Exuding confidence that NDA will win more than 275 seats in the upcoming polls, he said, “Rahul Gandhi’s dream of poll victory is like filling gas in balloons with holes. NDA will win more than 275 seats in the upcoming elections under (BJP’s prime ministerial nominee) Narendra Modi.”
“When Rahul Gandhi said that UPA will win more than 200 seats, he shocked everybody. His statement would have also shocked his mother and AICC chief Sonia Gandhi,” the Sena leader said.
