While addressing a press meet on Tuesday at the party's district office, he said,"Congress is underestimating Modi by saying that a tea seller cannot win elections. Even a tea seller can become the Prime Minister, anyone can become the PM."
He was also positive about Yeddyurappa rejoining the party: "If Yeddyurappa stands for elections it is a good news for everyone. The party wishes him to stand for elections as he is sure to win. If we all work together we can bring about changes in society," he said.
Highlighting the massive preparation that is going on within the party for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, he said that the party would be able to disclose its list of LS candidates by February 5 or 6.
He said,"Since January 15 we have been visiting every person in every nook and corner and distributing three pamphlets, detailing the scams and weakness of Congress, BJP's vision and success, and Narendra Modi's vision. Booth level agents (BLAs) who are assigned to each election booth should also vote with others. BLAs must examinethe voters' list, address, booth numbers etc before the elections. BLAs should not be government staff. Their names should be mentioned in the voters' list at their respected booths. For each and every booth there will be booth level officer (BLO). Nursery school teachers, city corporation officers and others are assigned for this work."
