Guwahati: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday (March 16) stated that the party will register a big win in Assam.
Reacting to National Congress Party Chief Sharad Pawar's prediction on upcoming assembly elections, Debendra Fadnavis said, "Even our adversaries have accepted that BJP will win in Assam. Although I don't agree with Sharad Pawar Ji's whole statement, if he also believes that BJP will win in Assam, it goes on to show that we will register a big win.
Devendra Fadnavis made the state during his visit to Guwahati. Sharad Pawar on Sunday (March 14) said that the BJP will retain power in Assam, but other parties will win in other states.
"In Assam, the BJP`s condition is comparatively better (than other states). In one state (Assam), BJP will retain power while in other states, other political parties will win elections. This is the trend and I am sure this new trend from five states will show a new way to the nation," he added.
He further said, "Despite all the misuse of state machinery by the BJP, Mamata Banerjee will retain her state."Four states and one union territory - West Bengal, Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, will be going to poll in the coming months.
West Bengal is likely to witness a triangular contest this time with TMC, Congress-Left-Indian Secular Front alliance and the BJP in the fray. Elections will be held in eight phases in the state starting from March 27 with the final round of voting taking place on April 29. Assembly elections in Assam for 126 seats will be held in three phases starting on March 27, April 1 and April 6.
