The winning streak of the BJP, which started in 2014 Lok Sabha elections, will continue in Himachal Pradesh Assembly polls, the party’s MP Anurag Thakur said today. Assembly election in Himachal Pradesh is scheduled to be held later this year. “Victories in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand Assembly polls are special as the BJP has got 3/4th majority. Similar trend will continue in Himachal Pradesh where BJP will win 60 seats. Bhoranj bypoll will be the beginning of a Congress-free Himachal Pradesh,” he said in a statement here.
Thakur claimed the Assembly poll results in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh are testimony to the fact that BJP’s development politics and various scheme started by the Modi government have benefited the common man.
Riding on the Modi wave, the BJP got 312 seats in Uttar Pradesh, while its allies the Apna Dal(S) bagged nine seats and the SBSP four, taking the total tally of the combine to 325. In Uttarakhand, BJP stormed to power by winning 56 of the 70 seats in the state, reducing Congress to a minuscule minority in the state Assembly with a poor tally of 11 seats.
