BJP to Fight 2017 UP Polls Alone: Naqvi


New Delhi: Ending speculation of likely coalition, BJp leader and Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that his party will contest the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls next year on its own.

“BJP will contest the coming 2017 assembly elections on its own and form its government,” Naqvi, who was here to attend a private function, told

Speaking on the DDCA controversy involving finance minister Arun Jaitely, Naqvi said the senior BJP leader was “clean and honest” and lashed out at the Aam Aadmi Party, which he said was indulging in drama.

The minister of state for minorities also accused the Congress of stalling country’s development.
