BJP confident of winning over 300 seats in 2019 Lok Sabha elections

Prime News, National (New Delhi), June 22:- Finance Minister Piyush Goyal has expressed confidence that it was “not impossible at all” for India to achieve a double-digit growth rate given the country’s demographic dividend and aspirational middle class.

Addressing the concluding day of the two-day UK-India Leadership Conclave in Latimer in Buckinghamshire via a live video-link from Delhi, Goyal, who is also the Minister for Railways and Coal, also predicted that the BJP would win over 300 seats in the 2019 general election and clinch a majority with its coalition partners.

He said the ruling BJP government had created an “honest and transparent” system to make India “future-ready”.

“I don’t want to be presumptuous and jump the gun in any way but what I will say is that I have immense faith in the people of India when it comes to elections,” he said in response to a question on next year’s elections.

“On the back of our achievements, I believe the BJP will get more than 300 seats in the 2019 election,” Goyal told the audience of business leaders and investors attending the Global Investors Forum at the conclave as part of the ongoing UK-India Week.

The minister also expressed confidence that double-digit growth rate was “not impossible at all” for India, given the country’s demographic dividend and aspirational middle class.

“The infrastructure push by the government will help the economy prepare for double-digit growth… Indian manufacturing is also set to leapfrog into more modern structures,” he said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
