BJP will win most seats in UP: Amit Shah
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s Uttar Pradesh in-charge Amit Shah on Saturday said the party will win most seats in the state.
"It is clear that Uttar Pradesh has voted for the BJP in the first two phases. I am sure we will win most number of seats in the state," Shah said.
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's close aide Shah said BJP's prime ministerial candidate will file his nomination from Varanasi on Apr 24.
The Election Commission (EC) on Thursday lifted ban on Shah on campaigning in politically crucial Uttar Pradesh.
"This came after Shah told the commission that he will not use derogatory or abusive language in poll campaigns," The Hindustan Times reported.
Shah had earlier urged people to take their revenge by voting for his party in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Addressing a rally at a riot-hit Jat village near Muzaffarnagar, Shah had said, "If you want to take revenge, vote for the BJP."
"In today's time you can't take revenge with swords and arrows like it was done in the Mughat era. But today the people are constantly being denied justice ... they are not getting their rights. So, you press the right button (on the Electronic Voting Machine) and show people their right place," he said.
The EC had banned him from holding public rallies and road shows Uttar Pradesh.
