Hyderabad, Dec 7 (UNI) Not ruling out that the number of seats which it would win in Gujarat polls later this month could decline, compared to last elections, BJP national spokesperson Prakash Javadekar today said the party would, however, get a comfortable majority to form a government on its own.

Addressing the media here, Mr Javadekar exuded confidence that BJP would win more than 100 seats out of 187 seats as against the 126 seats won in the last Assembly elections.

Demanding that the Centre reply to Afzal Guru's clemency letter, that was submitted to former President A P J Abdul Kalam by his wife on October 3, 2006, he said both the Delhi and Central governments were not responding to the letter, since Kalam sought comments from both the governments on the letter on October 4.

Alleging that the Centre was deliberately delaying its reply to the letter, he said the Congress-ruled Union and Delhi governments had adopted a 'soft attitude' towards the terrorists, who attacked theParliament and insulted the soldiers who laid down their lives.

He demanded the Election Commission (EC) to issue notices to AICC President Sonia Gandhi and General Secretaries Digvijay Singh and Abhishek Singhvi for calling Mr Modi a 'Hindu Terrorist'.

''There is no concept of resorting to violence in Hindu religion.

The remarks are highly objectionable. The EC should issue notices for the violation of code of conduct,'' he added.
