Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L K Advani on Saturday said the political atmosphere in the country is ideal for the party to get “record breaking results” with the Congress-led government failing to tackle corruption and price rise,creating a favourable condition for the main Opposition.
At the BJP Scheduled Caste Front National Executive in the national capital,the veteran leader said the political situation prevailing in the country today were never more favourable for the BJP in the past.
“Looking at the confidence of the SC Morcha workers here,I am sure that we will achieve record breaking results in the Lok Sabha elections,” Advani said.
Referring to the opinion polls published in some newspapers on Saturday,Advani said usually such polls are “prejudiced” against the BJP but this time,even these surveys show that the party will win the elections.
Predicting early polls,the BJP leader said the Lok Sabha and Assembly polls due this year would be over by April 2014.
“We have not experienced so many elections – in six-seven states and the Lok Sabha elections in such a short span,” he said.
“Keeping the weather conditions and other factors in mind,the Election Commission will also want early elections,whether the government wants it or not. The government may also want early polls. But whenever the elections are (to be) held,you should start preparations without speculating about the time,” Advani said.
