Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley said the BJP is a front-runner in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls and that the people were yearning for a stable government that will provide a "decisive leadership, revive the economy and remove corruption".

Arun Jaitley was reacting to the latest opinion polls showing that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will emerge as the biggest formation in the upcoming elections.

Though not a great believer in the accuracy of seat projections himself, Jaitley said since two different agencies have conducted the opinion polls, "it can only be assumed that they are trying to catch the trend of the public opinion".

Besides the BJP and the NDA partners, Jaitley said some parties which occupy the non-BJP and the non-Left space appear to be getting a significant tally.

"The AIADMK is poised to get a number of seats. The TDP is re-emerging and consolidating its vote-bank. The BJD is substantially holding on. The Trinamool Congress is improving its current tally. The euphoria over the YSR Congress has declined but it is still picking up some seats in the Seemandhra region."

But, "only the Congress appears to be nose-diving to its lowest ever tally. Its tally in 2014 may actually be in two digits," he said.
