Ahead of the counting of votes on December 11, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has claimed that the saffron party will be forming the government in Rajasthan, a state that has seen two national parties alternate power over the last 20 years.
The BJP has claimed that it would get a majority in the state, irrespective of what the exit polls predicted. The BJP on Sunday held a meeting of its core committee at its headquarters in Jaipur, Rajasthan, to discuss the strategies post counting process.
"I am not going to comment anything on the exit polls. The results will come on December 11. The BJP is going to form the government with a majority," Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje said after the meeting.
Union minister and BJP state election management committee convener Gajendra Singh Shekhawat also exuded confidence that his party will form the government with a majority. He said the meeting was held to distribute the responsibilities on the day of counting.
