Agartala: BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) expected to bag 300 seats in the coming Lok Sabha elections with a contribution of nearly 50 seats from the northeastern region and West Bengal. The party was in the process of preparing a wide-ranging poll manifesto based on feedbacks from all State units.
“There is no challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the NDA. We are going to win 300 seats in the Lok Sabha polls,” Mr. Shah said at a news conference in Agartala.
Mr. Shah, accompanied by a team of senior party office-bearers, arrived in Agartala to oversee organisational matters. Addressing a huge gathering of the party’s ”Pristha Pramukhs” (page observers) at Swami Vivekananda Stadium, he spoke on political and organisation issues and credited the party workers for the significant win in the Assembly elections in Tripura.
Lashing out at the Congress and its effort to create a ‘mahagatbandhan’ to take on the BJP, he said it would not yield any fruitful result. The BJP was confident of winning 21 seats in the Northeast and at least 23 in West Bengal.
