BJP’s Bangalore South Lok Sabha candidate H N Ananth Kumar on Monday said the countdown has begun for the fall of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre and Siddaramaiah-led state government.

At an interactive programme organised jointly by the Press Club and Bangalore Reporters’Guild here, he said the Congress would not cross the double digit in the country and will get only single-digit votes in the state. The Siddaramaiah government will cease to exist after the counting of votes on May 16, he claimed boldly.

“Congress is going to create history by winning the minimum number of seats in its 129-year history. On the other hand, BJP will win more than 272 seats and it will form a new government under Narendra Modi.”

He added that several Congress ministers have declined to contest polls because of strong anti-incumbency across the country. Modi hopes to increase the vote count in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Karnataka and the party is confident of winning over 20 seats in the state.

Congress was treating Lok Sabha elections as local body polls and is talking about bad roads and poor underground drainage system. Congress leaders like Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Siddaramaiah are worried about declining support for their party  and Modi’s growing popularity, he said.

“My opponent Nandan Nilekani is not aware of people’s problems. My victory in the coming election is certain.”

He also expressed confidence of a ‘saffron surge’ in south India and said his party would open its account in Kerala and  West Bengal.
