Losing in New Delhi no biggie for BJP: VK Malhotra
New Delhi, May 16: Bharatiya Janata Party leader V K Malhotra today said that the party has nothing to lose if it does not win seats in the national capital.
Addressing the media at the party headquarters, Malhotra remarked that the party was hoping for an improved show in the capital, but then it did not have much to lose.
"I have said that results are not out. Let the results come out, we hope that the results are good. Last time also, we got one seat. So, we don't have much to lose. If we get more then one seat, it will be good," he said.
Earlier, party president Rajnath Singh expressed his disappointment over the incoming election results, saying the BJP and the NDA never imagined it would be so devastating.
Conceding defeat in the elections, Singh said: "We never imagined this unexpected result. We will sit today and assess where we went wrong."
In the last general elections in 2004, the BJP had managed to win only one parliamentary seat in the national capital out of the seven constituencies, a virtual wipe out as the BJP held all seven constituencies prior to the 2004 general elections.
