New Delhi , 6 January 2014 : Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP ) will get a clear majority in this year’s Lok Sabha election, party president Rajnath Singh asserted Monday in NRI Sammelan.
Inaugurating a meeting organised by the Overseas Friends of BJP (OFBJP) here, Rajnath Singh gave credit to overseas Indians for providing economic stability after India’s 1998 nuclear tests.
“The UPA (United Progressive Alliance) government has hurt the country’s credibility in its 10 year rule, If any party has a firm commitment and strong leadership, it is the BJP,” Rajnath Singh told the NRIs.
“The country believes that a government is going to be formed with a clear majority of the BJP,” he said, adding that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi deserved to be the prime minister.
Rajnath Singh said NRIs should be given the right to vote in Indian embassies.
“The only party that has succeeded in having a stature bigger than that of the Congress is the BJP,” he said.
Claiming that the BJP had a target of winning 272-plus seats in the Lok Sabha, Rajnath Singh told the delegates: “The BJP will succeed in making the country a superpower with your cooperation.”
Vijay Jolly convenor of OFBJP urged overseas Indians to make telephone calls and send out 10 e-mails to their relatives and friends in India every day soliciting support for the BJP.
