Bharti confident of BJP’s victory in MP Assembly polls
Bhopal: BJP vice president Uma Bharti today said that she was confident of her party's win in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections slated later this year.
"There are a number of reasons which make me feel comfortable that the BJP will win the Assembly elections without any doubt," Bharti told PTI.
The main reason was the fact that the Congress has been in opposition in Madhya Pradesh for more than nine years, she said, adding that the Congress had become a party which cannot survive without political power.
The Congress can somehow live for a five-year term without power, but when it is in opposition for 10 years, its condition becomes pathetic, the BJP leader said.
The poor condition of the Congress, coupled with the excellent work done by the BJP government under the Chief Ministership of Shivraj Singh Chouhan would ensure BJP's victory, she said.
Replying to questions, she said a decision on whether or not she will campaign for the BJP in the Assembly elections would be taken by the party leadership.
Bharti said even when she had contested the Assembly election from Charkhari in Uttar Pradesh, the decision had been taken by the then BJP president Nitin Gadkari.
In Charkhari, she did not spend much time in campaigning, which was looked after by BJP workers, she said.
The senior party leader also said that she was not worried about not being made member of any of the committees formed by the state BJP unit for the Assembly elections.
"I do not worry about decisions taken by others," Bharti said.
