Lucknow: The BJP will win 74 out of a total of 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh in the coming general elections, Health and Family Welfare Minister JP Nadda said in Lucknow on Wednesday.
"BJP is all poised to win 74 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh," said Nadda while talking to media persons. "SP and BSP have joined hands as they are scared of the strength of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The alliance will have no impact on the BJP's performance in the Lok Sabha elections," said Nadda, who is the BJP in-charge of Uttar Pradesh.
"SP and BSP have recognised the prime minister's strength. They don't have any agenda. Their agenda is to remove PM Modi," he said, adding that the people of Uttar Pradesh and the country as a whole will shower their blessings on the BJP again.
Talking about allegations of false promise against Modi, Nadda said: "Our numbers are clear. We are ready to back our performance in any debate with the statistics. The life and political ideology of SP and BSP leaders are based on corruption, commission, lawlessness, and division."
Nadda said the support Modi is receiving from the people, and the work he has done in the last four and a half years along with the strategy of party president Amit Shah will ensure that the BJP will register a resounding victory in the Lok Sabha polls at the national level.
In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, BJP had won 71 out of 78 seats the party contested in Uttar Pradesh, while the two other seats were won by their ally-Apna Dal. Nadda said the BJP's agenda for the election is development in the country.
