"We are fighting the elections on our own, and the party workers are hard to ensure that the party forms the next government on our own," Rudy told journalists after attending an internal party meeting in Shillong.

Moreover, the former Union Minister also noted that BJP will not forge a pre-poll or post-poll alliance with any party.

Terming BJP President Amit Shah 'magic', Rudy said: "In whichever state he (Amit Shah) makes inroads, he conquers it."

The BJP, which failed to win a single seat in the 2013 Assembly elections, has fielded its candidates in 47 seats. These include four former legislators of the ruling Congress-led Meghalaya United Alliance government.

Criticising the Mukul Sangma-led government, Rudy said: "Except the roads constructed by National Highway Authority of India, there isn't much of which Meghalaya should feel proud about its government."

He also accused the ruling Congress government of failing to utilise central funds sanctioned by the Centre.
