We will win majority in Punjab assembly polls: CM

Patna, Jan 4 (IANS) Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday said his Shiromani Akali Dal and ally BJP will win a majority of seats in the February 4 Punjab assembly polls.

“We will win three fourth of the assembly seats since there is no opposition in Punjab. Hamare saath kisi ka muqabla nahin hain (no one is capable of competing with us),” he told the media soon after his arrival here.

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal too on Wednesday said his party was poised to win more than 100 of the 117 assembly seats in Punjab.

Badal arrived here along with his family in a special plane to participate in the ongoing ‘Prakash Utsav’ celebrations to commemorate the 350th birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh at Patna Sahib.

Badal was received by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar at the Patna airport.

Badal will visit Takht Sri Harimandir ji Patna Sahib — the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh — late Wednesday evening.

Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad on Tuesday offered prayers at the gurdwara. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal offered prayers at the holy place two days ago.
