Srinagar: As last phase of Assembly elections ended here Saturday, the Congress in charge of Jammu and Kashmir affairs, Ambika Soni said that the Modi wave was nowhere found in the Jammu region. She also claimed that the party will win majority of the seats.
The Modi magic was not visible anywhere in the last phase of the Assembly elections. The voters were no more willing to go with the BJP as they probably did in this region in the Lok Sabha elections, Soni told KNS over phone.
Lashing out at the BJP, she said, It is only the frustration of BJP that they criticize the Congress every now and then. We see they always criticize us. But the fact is that they are aware that the congress is a threat to their so called mission 44-plus. After they failed to impress the voters in Kashmir region they thought that they will sweep the Jammu region but we didnt find any such thing here.
She said that the BJP will not be able to get even a single seat from the Kashmir province. From the 50 seats of the Kashmir valley and Ladkah region the BJP will get noting, Soni claimed.
The Congress leader added that her party had succeeded to recover in the state after its poor performance in the Lok Sabha elections. I can say with authority that in Jammu and Kashmir we have retrieved our situation in this election in a big way. For the Congress the chances are very bright and we will win the majority of the seats. We will emerge as the largest party in the state even if we dont get majority, she told KNS.
