Bangalore, June 29 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L K Advani has said that he would undertake a countrywide tour to galvanize the party, which lost in the recent general polls.

Talking to reporters here on Sunday, Advani said that he would undertake the tour to rejuvenate the party after the upcoming budget session of parliament.

BJP faces an uncertain future after a heavy election defeat, as its mix of Hindu-revivalism and promise of strong governance failed to convince its traditional middle-class base.

The BJP could not capitalise on problems such as price rises after inflation hit nearly 13 percent last year, tens of millions of job losses and a string of militant attacks, including the assault on Mumbai in November.

The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) has won 159 seats, while the Congress-led UPA has won 261.(ANI)
