Mysore, May 2 (UNI) BJP Leader L K Advani today said that the saffron party had now reached a position of strength to form a government on its own in Karnataka.

"Sadly we were denied forming a government despite being the biggest party. Now we are ready to march ahead and install the party's government," he said.
BJP will take Karnataka towards development and this month's Assembly election was important as the party grew in power in the South, he said.
Mr Advani said that the people had compared between the NDA and the UPA governments and the ruling coalition's 'total failure' was very evident. Assembly Elections in Karnataka would be an eye opener to the political changes in General Elections to Lok Sabha next year in the Country.
