Ruling out possibility of a fractured verdict, Union fertilisers and chemicals minister Ananth Kumar said the BJP will form government with clear majority in Maharashtra. The state assembly elections will be held in Maharashtra on October 15.

"Election results will be unprecedented in Maharashtra; similar to what we saw in Lok Sabha polls," Kumar told the media on Friday.

When asked about Shiv Sena head Uddhav Thakre's repeated attacks on the BJP, he said BJP's focus is on misrule in Maharashtra. "Our target is Nationalist Congress Party and Congress party. People in Maharashtra are against two parties. The BJP represents people there," he remarked. He, however, evaded a query on possibility of forging fresh alliance with Shiv Sena.

Union information and broadcasting minister Prakash Javadekar evaded reply on the report on Sunanda Pushkar, the deceased wife of Congress party leader Shashi Tharoor. The report found that she died of poison. He said health minister will give the answer.

Union ministers Ananth Kumar, Prakash Javadekar were in Indore to address Global Investors' Summit which concluded on Friday.
