BJP national president Rajnath Singh on Wednesday exuded confidence that the party will come to power with a thumping win in the coming Lok Sabha elections.
Rajnath told reporters here that the people of India would teach a lesson to the ‘corrupt’ UPA. It is believed that the top boss of the BJP came to meet senior leaders of the RSS, who are in Kochi in regard to their national executive committee that has been convened at Bhaskareeyam Bhavan, Elamakkara, RSS state headquarters.
He reiterated that the BJP would perform well in the coming Assembly elections in four states, scheduled in December.
The performance of the BJP in states like Delhi and Rajasthan will be an indicator to the larger game -- the 2014 general elections.
The Assembly polls will also be an acid test for Gujarat CM Narendra Modi, who has been elevated as the party’s PM candidate after a bitter inter-party struggle. Brushing aside allegations of factionalism, he said: “The BJP is free from factionalism. We are jointly fighting against the UPA and corruption. We are united.”
He said the party will try its best to open its electoral account in the state. Currently, there is no BJP MLA or MP from the state.
Rajnath will visit the RSS headquarters on Thursday. At the conclave, the BJP is represented by its organising secretary.
Sources said Rajnath will discuss election strategies with RSS supreme head Mohan Bhagwat, who, along with other senior leaders of the RSS, is camping in Kochi. It is for the first time that Kochi is hosting such a high-profile RSS meeting.
