Surcharged atmosphere in favour of NDA: Advani
LK Advani claimed that there is a surcharged atmosphere prevailing in favour of Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led NDA government in the country.
Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani here on Monday claimed that there is a `surcharged atmosphere' prevailing in favour of the Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee led NDA government in the country and its result will be known on May 13, the day of counting.
Addressing media persons at A Meet-The-Press programme organised by Indore Press Club, Advani said "I am confident that President APJ Abdul Kalam will extend invitation to Vajpayee after the results to form the government".
"There is a surcharge atmosphere prevailing in the country in favour of Vajpayee led NDA government as was the case in 1977 and 1984 and its results will be known on May 13", he said.
"Since 1952, I have seen all the polls and the atmosphere at present is surcharged in favour of Vajpayee due to the performance of his government", he said.
Regretting that the opposition has failed to raise any issue on which standard debate could have taken place in the run up to the polls since last two months, Advani said the opposition specially the Congress has failed to convince the voters why they should not vote for the NDA. They only indulged in `pure negativism'.
Appealing the voters to give BJP-led NDA another term to complete several schemes it had launched, Advani said BJP-led NDA has proved in the last six years that it can provide the country `good governance' in every sphere.
