BJP's TN chief predicts party win in Rajasthan and Mizoram
The BJP would definitely win the state assembly elections in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, the party's Tamil Nadu president Tamilisai Soundarajan said Saturday.
"The party has given good corruption-free governance in these states and it will definitely win," she told reporters at the airport here when asked about the exit polls for assembly elections in five states predicting a tight finish between the BJP and the Congress in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, and a win for the opposition party in Rajasthan.
The exit polls also predicted that the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in Telangana will retain power, but forecast a hung assembly in Mizoram, where the Congress is in power.
It would also win in Mizoram despite the outcome of exit polls, she claimed. On the comments by CPI leader Mutharasan that Lotus (BJP Symbol) would not bloom in Tamil Nadu, she said he should not be bothered about the BJP as it is ruling in 19 states as against one by Left Parties.
"DMK alliance is very weak and Mutharasan need not worry about BJP alliance," she said.
The counting of votes for all five states is scheduled for December 11. Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan are all ruled by the BJP presently.
