The former Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda said here on Sunday that the return of the former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa and the former Minister B. Sriramulu has brought elephant’s power to the BJP in the State.

He said that the BJP in the State was hopeful of winning 21 to 23 Lok Sabha seats.

He said that the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s yatra in the State next month would not have any impact on the BJP. Wherever Mr. Gandhi travelled, the Congress closed its offices, he claimed.
