 Karnataka BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa Wednesday said India’s pre-emptive strikes on terror camps in Pakistan has created a wave in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and will help the party win over 22 of 28 seats in the state in the coming Lok Sabha polls. “The by day the wind is increasingly blowing in favour of BJP.

Wednesday’s action of destroying terror hideouts by entering inside Pakistan has resulted in a pro-Modi wave in the country, the results of which can be seen in coming Lok Sabha polls,” Yeddyurappa said. Speaking to reporters in Chitradurga, he said “It has enthused youths; all this will help us in winning more than 22 Lok Sabha seats (in Karnataka).”

Currently, BJP holds 16 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka, Cong 10 and JD(S) 2.

Facing flak for linking India’s air strike on terror camps in Pakistan with BJP’s prospects in Lok Sabha polls, party Karnataka chief B S Yeddyurappa Thursday said there was no question of seeking electoral gains and the nation came first to him.

VK Singh hits out at BSY

Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh criticized party colleague and former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa for claiming that the Indian air strikes on a terror camp in Pakistan have led to a “pro-Modi” wave in the country ahead of the elections. “BS Yeddyurappa ji, I beg to differ,” Singh said in a tweet. “We stand as one nation, action taken by our government is to safeguard our nation [and] ensure safety of our citizens, not to win a few extra seats,” he said.
