Uttrakhand Chief Minister B C Khanduri is confident of getting a renewed public mandate for his government in the recently concluded Assembly polls,but a blame-game has erupted between him and his predecessor Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank over their role in the elections.

“I am sure,we would get a comfortable majority,” Khanduri told The Indian Express here on Thursday,adding that he would “refrain from giving an exact number of seats” which he thought the BJP would win. “A comfortable majority obviously means the tally would be around 40 (in a House of 70),one seat less or two seats more,” he said.

Khanduri met senior leader L K Advani and party president Nitin Gadkari here to put forth his case vis-a-vis the issue of internal sabotage of party prospects in the polls. Nishank was here three days ago on a similar mission.

“Whatever I have got to say about any internal matter I will say it to my party leaders,” Khanduri said later. However,he took a dim view of people (implying Nishank) “going public” on the issue.
