Talking to reporters at his residence at Samirpur, the BJP's chief ministerial candidate said the party would win the elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and it was visible from the massive response of the people in the BJP rallies in the two states.

He said the number of seats won by the party would be known only after counting, but Himachal Pradesh would certainly become the 19th state in the country where the Congress would be ousted.

The BJP leader said the new government would strive hard to end "mafia raj" in the state and restore the confidence of the people in the administration.

He claimed women were the worst-hit during the Congress' regime and the focus of the party would be to restore their faith in the system by providing a fearless government.
