BJP wanted to change agenda through polarization strategy: Surjewala
Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said, ‘Modi ji and the BJP were confused and wanted to change the agenda with their polarization strategy, but the people did not allow them to do so. Surjewala said that one thing is clear that the BJP has accepted defeat. Congress party will form the government and we will serve the people of Karnataka. Everyone is free to go wherever they want. I want to thank the 6.5 crore people of Karnataka who have voted for the Congress party.
If this happens then how will BJP win 400 seats?
The Bharatiya Janata Party has given a target of winning 400 seats for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. From this point of view also, the election of Karnataka becomes very important for the BJP. If the predictions of exit polls turn into results, then BJP will be out of power. It is being said that if the BJP is voted out of power in Karnataka, it will be very difficult for it to achieve its target of 400 seats.
