Ujjain: If the BJP on its own or the BJP-led NDA fail to get 272 seats in the Lok Sabha elections, then the party may include some more parties in the fold. According to Rashtriya Swavamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Indresh Kumar, more than 20 parties have joined hands with the BJP well before the elections in the country and more parties are ready to join the NDA soon.

During a press conference, here on Monday, Indresh Kumar said that the so-called aggressive stand adopted by prominent leaders like Mamata Banerjee, Mayawati and Mulayam Singh Yadav should be seen in the backdrop of elections only. “If the leaders criticise each other during electioneering, it should not be seen that they are staunch opponents,” he said.

According to Indresh Kumar, Mamata Banerjee had revolted against the Congress and joined the Vajpayee government and once again became the part of Congress-led UPA government and then left the government. Similar is the case of Mayawati and Mulayam, who used to fight against each other and also against the Congress, but both of them extended outside support to the UPA-2. “There is no party or leader belonging to any caste, religion or region who cannot be part of the government after elections,” he underscored. “Narendra Modi will definitely be the next prime minister,” he asserted.
