Udupi, Apr 2 (UNI) BJP Chief Ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa today expressed confidence that his party would win the Assembly elections on its own.

Expressing happiness over announcement of election schedule by the Election Commission, he told reporters here that the BJP favoured installation of a popular government at the earliest.

He said a list of party candidates had been prepared and top party leaders, including Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members, would meet in Bangalore tomorrow to decide the same.

The party would finalise the list and send it to the party central election committee within the next three days.

''The ploy of the Congress to get the elections postponed beyond May did not work as the Commission stuck to the norms and did not bend to the pressure tactics of that party,'' he claimed.

Mr Yeddyurappa said the party would fight the elections alone and would not enter into any poll alliance with any other party.

''The state party leaders have made it clear to the central committee about the strong sentiments of the party workers on contesting independently in all constituencies without entering into any alliance with other parties,'' he said.

He said that after resigning the Chief Minister's post in November, he had toured 110 Assembly constituencies, where he had received overwhelming response from the people.
