Jaitley`s colleague in BJP Shahnawaz Hussain also exuded confidence that his party will get absolute majority in the recently concluded general elections and form government on its own.

“Don`t think we will need more allies, but still as Narendra bhai said `sabka saath, sabka vikas`, we are ready to support from any party,” Hussain said.
