Antagonists alliance like wedding preparations without a groom’

CALLING the Opposition parties’ efforts to forge an alliance to take on the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls a futile exercise without a Prime Ministerial candidate, senior leader of the BJP Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday said it was like getting ready for a wedding without knowing who was the groom.

The BJP National Vice-President and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said the proposed Opposition alliance was devoid of any principle, intention or leader, while claiming that the BJP would win 300 seats in the general election, expected to take place in April-May. He also took a swipe at the Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party electoral tie-up in Uttar Pradesh and said it was not clear who had prevailed over whom -- SP chief Akhilesh Yadav or BSP supremo Mayawati -- to form the alliance. “Only the hands have come together, but not the hearts,” Chouhan told a press conference at the West Bengal BJP headquarters here, while alleging that alliances were being forged only to serve the interests of Opposition leaders and not on the basis of any idealism. He asserted that the BJP would improve its tally from the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and the NDA would win 400 seats this time.

He added that the ‘incohesive’ Opposition alliance was like a wedding, where preparations were done for the party and even the bridegroom’s horse was decked up, but nobody knew who would be groom (Prime Minister).
