UP Assembly polls: CM Yogi Adityanath exudes confidence; says BJP will win over 300 seats
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said, "BJP will win 2022 elections with huge margin. We'll win more than 300 seats."
Exuding confidence after BJP’s victory in Uttar Pradesh Zila Panchayat chairperson election on Saturday (July 3), Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath claimed that his party will win more than 300 seats in the 403-seat state Assembly elections in 2022.
Referring to All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen's stake to contest the 2022 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) accepts AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi's "challenge".
Putting his own two cents on the matter, CM Yogi said that there is "no doubt" that the BJP will form government in the state after winning "more than 300 seats" in the assembly polls next year.
CM Adityanath told ANI, “BJP candidates won 67 out of 75 district panchayat chairperson seats. I thank BJP workers. BJP will win 2022 elections with huge margin. We'll win more than 300 seats.”
"Asaduddin Owaisi is a big leader of our nation. If he has challenged BJP for the 2022 Assembly elections, then BJP's worker accepts his Asaduddin Owaisi challenge," Yogi told news agency ANI in an interview. "There is no doubt that BJP will form government in Uttar Pradesh in 2022."
Owaisi had recently said that AIMIM would do everything to ensure that the BJP does not return to power in the northern state.
For context, the road to election campaigning has picked up in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the assembly polls next year. AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi had said last month that his party will field candidates on as many as 100 seats in the state for the 2022 assembly elections. Owaisi's party is set to contest the elections along with the Om Prakash Rajbhar-led Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) and other smaller parties, under the alliance banner of Sankalp Morcha.
