Jaitley says there is groundswell support for BJP ahead of LS polls

Amritsar, Mar.29: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley on Saturday said there was groundswell of support for the party across the country.

Jaitley, who is contesting the Lok Sabha polls from Amritsar, said few opinion polls predicted that BJP was ahead of its opponents in some of the key states.

“This leads me to claim even in the areas, where we were weak, if our vote is on increase, so a groundswell is coming up,” he said.

Jaitley took dig at his challenger Captain (retired) Amarinder Singh for claiming senior BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani had backed raid of Sikh temple in 1984.

“I didn’t know that Captain (retired) Amarinder Singh had such a poor impression of (Late prime Minister) Indira Gandhi that she was acting under Advani’s pressure. She is no more in this world so he should show a better tribute to her,” he added. (ANI)
