Bhopal, Apr 20 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushma Swaraj on Monday said that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) would cross the magic figure of 272 in the general elections.
"Not only would the NDA get a majority on its own, the BJP would also emerge as the single largest party," Swaraj said at a press conference here.
When asked to specify the number of seats that the BJP was likely to win, Swaraj said that her party would win anything between 180 to 200 seats on its own.
Swaraj, who is also the BJP in-charge for Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand said that her party would win all the seats in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
"The BJP can win all the 11 seats in Chhattisgarh, all the 29 seats in Madhya Pradesh and four out of six seats in Jharkhand for which polling was held in the first phase on April 16," Swaraj added.
Without pointing to the Congress, Swaraj said she was hurt at the type of language being used by leaders of some political parties.
"When BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, L. K. Advani described Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh as a weak Prime Minister, he did not attack him personally but only referred to his working style," she added.
Sushma quickly added that when Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP leader Narendra Modi called the Congress as old, he did not mean disrespect to any person but only spoke of the organization. (ANI)
