"Good governance and development will be the two issues of our party in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections," Singh, who was on a visit to Harihar Dham, told reporters.

Replying to a question on next month's byelection to the Kairana Lok Sabha seat, Singh said he was confident about the BJP's victory.

"We have full faith that we will win the Kairana by-election," he said.

The byelection will take place on 28 May. It was necessitated after BJP veteran Hukum Singh passed away in February.

Speaking about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two-day visit to China, Singh said India wanted to have good relations with all its neighbours and not just China.
