She said: "Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who successfully ran a coalition government and took the country on the path of rapid development, would again assume the mantle of Prime Ministership."

Bharti, however, refused to quantify the number of seats to be bagged by BJP in Madhya Pradesh.

The BJP had won 21 seats in the state in 1999 general elections, leaving remaining eight for the Congress.

The Chief Minister said her government was sincerely working for the development of the state ever since it came to power after the assembly polls in December last.
