Citing heavy polling, state Congress president Arjun Modhwadia on Saturday claimed his party would win the Assembly elections with a thumping majority.
Addressing mediapersons at the state party headquarters, he said BJP would be wiped out. The change in guard in the state would herald a new phase when people could live without fear, he said.
Giving examples, Modhwadia said the highest-ever turnout in West Bengal in the last Assembly polls there saw the ouster of the Left Front government. Similarly, a high turnout (69 per cent) in UP Assembly elections a year ago brought Samajwadi Party back to power by removing BSP and a 76 per cent turnrout in Tamil Nadu polls threw out the DMK government.
The state Congress chief said he expected a record number of seats for his party from Saurashtra and south Gujarat, where polling took place in phase-I on December 13. He said he also expected heavy polling in central and north Gujarat regions during the second phase on December 17 which would again be in favour of Congress.
Modhwadia said CM Narendra Modi's ambitions to become PM would never be realised, much like his political mentor L K Advani's.
