Only two days ahead of Delhi election polling, BJP’s chief Amit Shah contended that the election outcome cannot be a referendum on the functioning of Narendra Modi government on Thursday.
He expressed confidence that the BJP will form a government in Delhi with a “very big majority” and Kiran Bedi will become Chief Minister.
He has said that Delhi election is not to elect a Chief Minister. You also know the Constitution. Elections in Delhi are never to elect Prime Minister,” Shah told.
“Narendra Modi is not fighting assembly elections. It is a state election. You are going to elect a Chief Minister not a Prime Minister. It is the BJP versus the rest. That is all. While this is indeed true that the good work of the Government of India has its impact on elections, a state election cannot become a refrendum (on Centre’s functioning) because of that one thing”.
Shah dismissed surveys projecting AAP as a winner and ridiculed Arvind Kejriwal accusing him of “trying to become a hero” by releasing its internal surveys to claim a winner.
