BJP is ready to face fresh polls in Delhi

NEW DELHI: Amid uncertainty over government formation in the city, Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay on Sunday said his party is “fully ready” to face fresh elections though many party MLAs are reluctant to go to polls again.

At the same time, he said the party will explore taking a shot at power and talk about the numbers once invited by the lieutenant governor.

After an hour-long meeting with senior leader and home minister Rajnath Singh, Upadhyay said BJP was confident of getting a “clear majority” if elections are held afresh in the national capital.

In the meeting, Upadhyay briefed Singh about party MLAs reluctance to go to polls again and conveyed to him that getting the required numbers to form a government will not be a major challenge.

“If tomorrow elections are announced, we are ready to face it. We are extremely confident of getting a clear majority and handing out crushing defeat to both Congress and AAP. The party does not have any issue in facing the electorate again,” Upadhyay told PTI.

BJP sources said there was no consensus in the party on whether it should form a government or not and a final decision on the issue has been left to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
