Lucknow: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that has been facing serious trouble over the ticket distribution before the crucial assembly elections in UP is putting a brave face. The party chief, Amit Shah, who has been managing the whole UP campaign, has claimed that the party will win two third majority in the most populous state in the country.
Amit Shah’s claim has come at a time, when people have started questioning the party’s chances in the state. Till merely a few months ago, BJP looked a sure success in UP. Voters in the state had surprised everyone by electing as many as 73 MPs belonging to BJP and allies. 71 MPs were elected on BJP ticket alone. But now things seem to have changed substantially with voters divided between the BJP, SP-Congress and the BSP.
While talking at a rally in Vasco in south Goa, 35 km from Panaji, Shah also said the BJP would comfortably win majorities in all the five poll-bound states: Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Manipur.
The BJP chief said, “I want to tell Akhilesh that because of the family drama, grabbing of land, goonda raj, mafia raj and corruption cannot be hidden. The BJP will win in UP with a two-third majority.”
Amit Shah said that Uttar Pradesh was plagued by scams and poor governance. “Law and order has crumbled, lands of the poor are being snatched, women are not safe, there is no infrastructure, farmers are upset, they are not getting their dues,” the BJP chief said.
