New Delhi, July 27 IANS | 1 year ago

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani expressed confidence Saturday that his party would get outstanding results during the 2014 elections.


He was addressing the national executive meeting of the BJP Scheduled Caste Morcha.

"I can see from all angles that BJP will give record-breaking results during the 2014 elections," said Advani.

"It is not necessary that the election result would be the same as what the election tracker survey has been predicting. I am firm that the result will be much better than what has been predicted," he added.

The CNN-IBN-CSDS-The Hindu Election Tracker survey had showed that the 2014 Lok Sabha elections were going to throw up a fractured mandate with neither the BJP nor the Congress coming anywhere close to the half-way mark of 272 in the 545-member Lok Sabha.

The BJP veteran also ruled out the possibility of an early Lok Sabha polls.

"Elections in the six states of the country and the Lok Sabha polls will take place before April, may be till May. But everybody is of the opinion that the Election Commission would want the polls to take place earlier, whether the government wants it or not," he said.

Advani also attacked the Congress on the corruption issue.

"The Congress party has set the agenda for the 2014 polls due to (its) corruption and misgovernance. BJP's job is just to highlight it," he said.
