Union minister Piyush Goyal predicts that BJP will will over 300 seats in 2019 Lok Sabha polls. He claimed that he had conducted a survey on his own, in which over 5.4 lakh respondents across the country revealed the BJP will win between 297-303 seats.
The minister said he had conducted out a similar survey in 2013 that had predicted an absolute majority for the BJP in 2014, and it was right. For the 2019 elections, the survey was conducted out in August-September, he said.
“I’m happy to share that the BJP looks to be between 297-303 seats by itself in the 2019 elections,” he said at the annual ET awards in Mumbai, last evening. He clarified that the survey was not done by the BJP, but by a private agency, generally used by media houses.
Meanwhile, a nationwide survey conducted by India TV-CNX says that the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ alliance of non-BJP parties, if it at all materialises, can reduce the ruling party BJP’s strength in Parliament.
