"People want to get rid of the prolonged misrule by Congress marked by unprecedented price rise and corruption.
They have also realised that BJP alone can save the nation by giving good governance," he said at an election rally at Ghansali in support of Mala Rajya Laxmi Shah, party candidate from Tehri Lok Sabha seat.
He said "a wave is sweeping across the entire country in favour of the BJP due to years of misgovernance by the Congress and the party will be demolished in these elections."
Advani said Uttarakhand was close to his heart as it was he who had prepared the proposal for the creation of the state along with Jharkhand and Chchattisgarh at the behest of
then Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee.
He said Vajpayee-led NDA government had given special status to Uttarakhand and claimed the BJP will sweep all the five Lok Sabha seats in the state to help in the formation of
a NDA government at the Centre in the leadership of Narendra Modi.
