New Delhi, News24 Bureau, May 20: Amit Shah is hosting a dinner for all NDA leaders and this move by the BJP national president has a significance before the final results are announced on May 23. BJP is in a jubilant mood after almost all Exit Polls predict a clean sweep by the Modi government.
BJP has always taken its partners along even in 2014 when the party had an absolute majority and was capable of making the government on its own. The regional partners, argues the party, help understand the regional issues in a much better way. And this is why when a big victory is being predicted, the first thing that the BJP is doing is meeting their partners.
BJP national President Amit Shah is likely to host a dinner for NDA leaders on Tuesday, suggest sources.According to sources, Shah has invited the key leaders of National Democratic Alliance and will be meeting them over dinner two nights before the day of the counting of votes in the Lok Sabha elections.
The Union Council of Ministers is also expected to meet tomorrow, the sources said.
Exit polls telecast after the culmination of polls on Sunday projected the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance to retain power at the Centre with most of the pollsters giving Prime Minister Modi a clear majority again in the 543-member Lok Sabha.
While the BJP and its coalition partners have said that the exit polls are showing the complete picture, the Opposition parties have termed the exit polls as wrong. Elections for 543 seats in the Lok Sabha were held between April 11 and May 19. The counting of votes is scheduled for May 23.
The Opposition is in no mood to accept the figures thrown by various exit polls and is still hopeful of getting the magical figure and make a strong coalition government at the centre.
