Enthused by the BJP’s emphatic success in the Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Delhi, West Bengal BJP president Rahul Sinha said here on Sunday that his party will contest the coming Lok Sabha elections on its own in the State.
As for an alliance with the Trinamool Congress, he was confident that the BJP would have no such need. He, however, added: “If the Trinamool decides to form an alliance with us it might be beneficial for us.”
Mr. Sinha said the party’s success in the Assembly elections was a clear indication of “what is going to happen in the next Lok Sabha elections when the Congress will be blown away by a pro-BJP wave.” Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should take the hint and immediately resign, he said.
As for BJP’s prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Mr. Sinha said it was just a matter of time before Mr. Modi became the Prime Minister.
Mr. Sinha advised the media to focus on why despite the effort of frontline leaders of the Congress such as Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, the party was defeated.
