Launching a scathing attack on Rahul Gandhi, the Shiv Sena on Tuesday said the Congress vice president's dream of victory in the Lok Sabha elections is like filling gas in a balloon which is full of holes.
"It's hilarious that the Congress, which can't find candidates, is claiming to win more than 200 seats. (There is an) anti-Congress wave in the country, no one wants a Congress ticket," Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said in an editorial in party mouthpiece Saamana.
Exuding confidence that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance will win more than 275 seats in the upcoming polls, he said, "Rahul Gandhi's dream of poll victory is like filling gas in a balloon with holes. The NDA will win more than 275 seats in the upcoming elections under (BJP's prime ministerial nominee) Narendra Modi."
“When Rahul Gandhi said that the United Progressive Alliance will win more than 200 seats, he shocked everybody. His statement would have also shocked his mother and Congress President Sonia Gandhi," the Sena leader said.
Taking a dig at Aam Aadi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal, he claimed that the AAP will "disappear" after the elections.
