As the Himachal Pradesh Assembly polls ended today, the BJP expressed confidence of getting a huge majority, claiming that the tally of the incumbent Congress would be reduced to single digit in the 68-member House. In the outgoing assembly, the Congress and the BJP have 35 and 28 MLAs respectively besides four independents and one seat is vacant. "People have given their mandate. The five-year corrupt rule of Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh is going to end.
We will get over 60 seats and the Congress tally will be confined to singe digit. It will disappear from the state after results are announced," BJP media head Anil Baluni said. The assembly poll results are scheduled to be announced on December 18.
