Many BJP leaders are expecting that the party will win more than 300 seats in the general elections, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself saying the same. “The BJP alone is getting 300 seats while NDA is getting 350 plus seats after the sixth phase of elections,” Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said earlier.
Meanwhile, the BJP allies do not completely agree with the party's claim. Sanjay Raut, a Shiv Sena leader, said that the NDA will form a government but it will be difficult for the BJP to win 280-plus votes alone. Another ally Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) expressed a similar view. Naresh Gujral, a SAD leader, said BJP is likely to fall short of an absolute majority and a coalition government will be formed by the NDA.
