BJP will secure over 300 seats in LS polls, says Swamy
Bhubaneswar: Claiming that BJP alone would secure more than 300 seats in Lok Sabha in the next general elections, party leader Subramanian Swamy today said after forming the next government NDA would cancel all coal blocks allocated during the UPA rule.
"BJP alone will get absolute majority with more than 300 seats to form government at the Centre. We have a strong and trusted allies like Shiv Sena and Akali Dal. The NDA will touch the magic number without help of any new ally," Swamy told reporters at the sidelines of a function here.
"As soon as NDA comes to power, it will cancel all the coal blocks allocated to different companies. We will go on auction route to make fresh allotments of the coal blocks," said Swamy, whose Janata Party merged with the BJP in August.
Earlier delivering 13th Harischandra Bauxipatra Memorial Lecture here, Swamy alleged that the Congress-led UPA government failed to contain corruption, terrorism, price rise and to improve relationship with neighbouring countries.
Claiming that Rs 120 lakh crore was illegally stashed in foreign banks by Indians, he said the country got income tax revenue of only Rs two lakh crore per annum and spent similar amount on subsidies on different items.
"The people of India will not have to pay income tax for 60 years, if the government recovers the black money stashed in foreign banks," he said.
