Confident of winning 2014 polls, will revive economy: Rajnath

Mumbai, Sep 14, 2013 (PTI)

A day after Narendra Modi's anointment as BJP's prime ministerial candidate, party president Rajnath Singh today exuded confidence that along with allies the party would be able to form the next government at the Centre.

"We hope to get 272 plus seats in the 2014 elections. Give us 272 plus seats and we will form a government whose economic policies will restore India's pride globally," he said.
Singh was addressing a gathering after inaugurating a new building of Mumbai Bullion Association at Zaveri Bazaar.

The BJP chief said all allies of his party who would contest the general elections together would participate in the next government if the alliance came to power.

The BJP leader, who was instrumental in Modi's elevation despite strong reservations voiced by party patriarch L K Advani, refused to take any questions about the veteran's absence at the Central Parliamentary Board's meeting where the decision to declare the Gujarat Chief Minister as its prime ministerial nominee was taken.
