Expressing confidence over his party’s return to power in the present Lok Sabha polls, BJP chief Amit Shah today claimed that already his party has crossed the majority mark after six phases of polling.
Ridiculing opposition parties proposed meet on May 23rd evening, immediately after counting of votes to discuss on the formation of new government, Amit Shah said that they are meeting to elect a leader of opposition.
“You (media) keep asking me how many seats we will win. I have travelled across the country and looking at the popular response, I am fully confident that the BJP after fifth and sixth phase of the elections has crossed the majority figure. It is going to cross 300 after the seventh phase and the NDA under Prime Minister Narendra Modi will form the government again,” he asserted.
The seventh and last phase of the elections for 543 Lok Sabha seats is due on May 19. A party needs to win 272 seats for a simple majority. The BJP had won 282 in 2014.
Mocking the proposed meeting of opposition leaders and the move by some regional parties like TRS to form a federal front, Shah said such meetings do not affect the BJP whose seats, he added, are not going to come down.
