Union home minister Amit Shah said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will return to power in Uttar Pradesh with “overwhelming majority”. He was speaking at Hindustan Times Leadership Summit (HTLS). He also rubbished assertions that Samajwadi Party (SP), which is stitching up alliance with smaller parties, will pose a challenge to the BJP. SP chief Akhilesh Yadav recently claimed his party will win 400 of the 403 seats in UP Assembly. “Politics is not physics, it's chemistry. Voters are aware, they won't be guided by caste equations anymore. I have extensively toured the state, and can say this with confidence that BJP will form government with overwhelming majority in Uttar Pradesh,” Shah told HT Media Limited’s Chairperson and Editorial Director Shobhana Bhartia. BJP’s position is really strong in Uttar Pradesh, he added. Shah said there is no impact of farmers’ protest in the state since Prime Minister Narendra Modi repealed the three laws, which triggered the agitation. Watch the full video for more details.
