The Bharatiya Janata Party is confident of winning over 300 seats in the ensuing general elections, party official spokesperson and in charge of party affairs in Andhra Pradesh Prakash Javadekar has said.
Addressing media here on Friday, Mr. Javadekar said the party had performed well in the elections to 440 seats that were completed so far and it was confident of winning over half of the balance 105 seats taking its total tally beyond 300. “The Congress will win in single digits in most states and is unlikely even to open its account in a few other states,” he added.
Given the fact that in most states the elections were only being held for the Lok Sabha, the voters were thinking clearly about the national picture and were keen on making Narendra Modi as Prime Minister, he said. In states where elections were being held simultaneously for State assemblies and the Lok Sabha, there were chances of the voters being swayed by the local issues.
The voters were fed up with the Congress and their votes too would go into the BJP kitty, he explained.
BJP Andhra Pradesh State unit president K Haribabu, State unit vice president B. Ranga Mohan, member State executive committee M. Nagendra and former Mayor D.V. Subba Rao were present.
Later in the evening, thousands joined the party at a meeting in the presence of Mr. Javadekar, Mr. Haribabu, Mr. D.V. Subba Rao, party finance committee member Ch. Ramakotaiah and other party leaders.
