BJP will retain power in Karnataka: BJP leader
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be on winning ways beginning with a win in Karnataka Assembly polls in May this year and have a bold show in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Delhi, when elections held next, former Union Minister Rama Nayak claimed today.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function here, he said the big win in Gujarat will have a rub-off effect for the BJP in the future elections to the states.
He said the common plank of the party in the coming Assembly elections will be good administration in the states it ruled, slow growth in Congress ruled states and the failure of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre.
Price increase, internal security and safety of women, which is under serious threat under the Congress rule, will also be highlighted, Mr Nayak said.
He said among the five states identified for good governance four were ruled by the BJP ruled and the other being Tamil Nadu.
Mr Nayak urged the Centre to ensure stringent punishment to the Delhi gangrape accused. The tragic incident had raised several issues about the safety and dignity of the women, he said.
