Just ahead of the beginning of counting for the assembly elections, Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party chief Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday exuded confidence that his party will form the government in the national capital with a comfortable majority.
"I am not nervous. I am confident that it will be a good day for the BJP. We are coming to power in Delhi today. Do not be surprised if we win 55 seats," Tiwari told reporters.
"Today is Tuesday and it also marks the day when Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay sacrificed his life. Me along with many other party officials are going to pay our respect to Panditji's statue at 6 DDU Marg (BJP headquarters)," he added.
Meanwhile, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel also offered prayers at the Hanuman Temple in Connaught Place, ahead of the counting process.
Though Goel said it was his weekly routine to offer prayers on Tuesday, he said he was assured of BJP's win in Delhi.
"We are assured that BJP government will be formed in Delhi with a majority," Goel said.
In the last assembly poll, the AAP had won 67 seats, the BJP 3.
THe Congress didn't open its account.
While the AAP hopes for a second consecutive term, the BJP is eyeing to gain a majority by cashing in on the popularity of Prime Minister Modi.
The Congress, which was in power for 15 years at a stretch in Delhi under the leadership of former chief minister late Sheila Dixit till the party lost to AAP in 2015 polls, hopes for a revival.
