Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy on Tuesday, 7 May, expressed confidence that the INDIA bloc would get more than 272 seats in the Lok Sabha polls, the magic number, and form the government at the Centre.

In an interview, he claimed that the “warranty of Modi ji’s guarantee’ has expired and that a change is visible in the country with BJP losing the polls.

“I went to Kerala, Karnataka, a little bit of Uttar Pradesh. I am getting information from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on polls. The warranty of Modi ji’s guarantee expired. It is difficult for people to vote for Modi ji when the warranty expires. That’s why, a change is visible in the country,” he said.

India alliance to get ‘plus 272 seats’

When asked about BJP’s slogan of “400 paar” (above 400) and the Congress party’s target in the polls, he said that the INDIA bloc would form the government.

“We will win 20 seats in Kerala, 39 out of 39 in Tamil Nadu, one seat in Pondicherry, at least 14 in Karnataka, 14 seats in Telangana,” said the Telangana Congress president.

Broadly, 272 is the magic number and INDIA bloc will get “plus 272 seats,” he said.

When asked about the Congress party’s slogan against the backdrop of BJP’s slogan of ‘abi ki baar 400 par’, he said Congress never speaks for mere slogans and that it is fighting polls on “5 nyay, 25 guarantee”.

He criticised the BJP, alleging that the saffron party has not implemented its “promises” of two crore jobs per year, bringing back black money and depositing ₹15 lakh in the accounts of the poor and doubling farmers’ income.
