Assembly results trailer of film set to release next year: BJP
Pepped up by the party's impressive performance in the Assembly elections in four states, state BJP president Rahul Sinha, while keeping the possibilities of an alliance with the TMC alive, said his party can perform well even if it were to fight the 2014 general election alone.
"BJP will not need any alliance to perform well in the election next year. If the TMC joins hand with us, we might gain out of it but they would stand the risk of losing all their Muslim votes. So it is TMC that has to decide whether it wants an alliance with us or not," Sinha said.
As BJP members indulged in celebrations and distribution of sweets outside the party office, Sinha said the victory is indication of the huge wave that would soon follow.
"This was just the trailer of the film that is going to be released next year. It shows that people's decision would sweep the country like a tsunami and blow the Congress away. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should take cue from this and immediately resign, leaving the decision to the people," he said.
The party's state president went on to assert that it's only a matter of time that Narendra Modi becomes the prime minister of the country. He left it for "the party to evaluate" how much did the Modi-factor worked in party's victory and how much it won through its own credibility.
"The media should concentrate on what went wrong with the Congress that none of their big names (Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh) could lead to their party's victory. It goes on to show how much the people have lost hope and trust for Congress."
On the possibility of BJP getting Muslim votes, he said: "Muslims in the country have realised that the Congress had been fooling them all these years by giving them assurances. Just like the CPM in Bengal for 34 years (and now the TMC, too) had been treading the path of minority appeasement by trying to bribe the Imams and get them to influence members from the community."
