Open to support from parties: BJP
The BJP on Wednesday said it is open to any support extended by parties which were not part of a pre-poll alliance even though the combine will get a majority on its own in the Lok Sabha polls.
New Delhi: The BJP on Wednesday said it is open to any support extended by parties which were not part of a pre-poll alliance even though the combine will get a majority on its own in the Lok Sabha polls.
"Actual results of election will be giving more seats than what exit polls are predicting and, therefore, we will get absolute majority but still all parties which want to support the NDA from the national development viewpoint or in the national interest are all welcome," BJP national spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.
Speculation is rife about talks between BJP and AIADMK and BJD leaders for their possible support to NDA which, according to pollsters, could form the next government at the Centre.
"All parties are also repositioning themselves to the new reality which they were denying till the campaign was on. That is the usual political process. We want to take everybody along," Javadekar said.
BJP leaders maintained that the country wants a "stable and performing" government and the NDA coalition will form the government with 300 plus seats.
"The entire country wants that there should be a stable and a performing government. The present NDA will form the government after getting majority with 300 plus seats," Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
Asked about alliances, Naqvi said that BJP has not put up a "no entry" board and the party was open to alliances.
"Who wants to support and who actually does....The NDA or the BJP has not hung up a no entry board. We want to give a good government and governance in the country and bring about corrections in the otherwise poor economic scenario," he said.
