Senior BJP leader admits Modis aggression against Pakistan will help win seats

Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacts with students at the grand finale of'Smart India Hackathon in New Delhi

Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala alleged that the Prime Minister was "hell-bent on creating a video-conference record" when the entire country was praying for the return of its brave-heart pilot. "This is not first time that I said the BJP in Karnataka will win minimum 22 seats under the able leadership of Modiji".

Months ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shrimoni Akali Dal (SAD) reached the seat-sharing agreement. BJP workers need to tell people the benefits of a strong government, he added.

"At a time when India is facing hostility of war and country needs firm leadership, PM Narendra Modi, instead of concentrating on the matters of national security, is trying to serve political interest by addressing his BJP workers is ridiculous besides betrayal of national sentiments", tweeted the BSP chief.

Speaking about the air strikes in Pakistan carried out by the Indian Air Force a couple of days ago, BS Yeddyurappa said that the BJP would end up winning 22 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka as a result of this move.

Noting that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Union home minister Rajnath Singh had informed about the developments at an all-party meeting, he said all political parties, including Congress President Rahul Gandhi, have welcomed India's action. "We stand as one nation, action taken by our government is to safeguard our nation & ensure safety of our citizens, not to win a few extra seats", he tweeted.

Yeddyurappa said, "The atmosphere.day by day, the wind is increasingly blowing in favour of the BJP".

Currently, BJP holds 16 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka, Congress 10 and JD (S) 2. "Is this patriotism or crass politics?"

She took the opportunity to greet and congratulate India forces to foiled Pakistan air attack on Wednesday calling it a big relief.

Mr Yeddyurappa has since gone back on his remarks, saying that was not what he meant.
