BJP President Rajnath Singh on Friday exuded confidence that the party will get at least half of the 100 seats where polling has been completed in three out of the nine phases of Lok Sabha elections.
Addressing an election meeting at Majhgaon, 52 km, Singh expressed confidence that the party would win 50 seats out of the 100, riding on a stong pro-Narendra Modi wave. “The wind is strongly in favour of the party’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as people have made up their minds to provide him an opportunity to lead the country,” he said.
The prospects of Congress in this election are very bad there by making the BJP’s chances to form a government in Delhi certain, Singh told reporters said.
Apart from the BJP-ruled states, the poll prospect of BJP is very impressive across the country, particularly in Uttar Pradesh, he claimed.
Singh said that if a BJP-led government was formed in Delhi, it would develop mineral-rich Jharkhand on the pattern of what the Chattisgarh government led by Raman Singh had done for the state.
“If required, we will also grant special package to Jharkhand to ensure rapid development,” he promised. Singh attributed Jharkhand’s tardy pace of development to the absence of a clear-cut majority.
