Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel today ridiculed the BJP's call of winning 150 seats in the Gujarat assembly elections to be held later this year, saying their balloon will soon burst.
"Gujarat is not Uttar Pradesh or Uttarakhand that they are claiming to win 150 seats, their balloon will burst," Patel said here today.
Patel was here to attend a private function.
Euphoric after the UP win, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani had claimed that the BJP will win 150 seats in Gujarat.
The BJP has also launched a slogan "UP main 325, Gujarat main 150". There are a total of 182 seats in the Gujarat assembly.
The state elections are scheduled to be held during the later part of the year. The BJP is in power in the state for the last 19 years.
