Kerala Election: Metro man Sreedharan claims, BJP will win 35-40 seats, Assembly will be hung

New Delhi: A day after voting in the assembly elections in Kerala, Metro man and BJP leader E Sreedharan claimed that his party would win 35 to 40 seats in the state. He also expressed confidence of winning from Palakkad constituency by more than 10,000 votes.

According to the Times exit poll, it will be a hung assembly. He told reporters that my personal assessment is also like that. I had earlier said that BJP will get 40-75 seats, now my assessment is that the party will get 35-40 seats and there will be a hung assembly in the state. No one can predict what will happen next. There are 140 assembly constituencies in Kerala.

An eminent engineer known for projects such as the Konkan Railway and the Delhi Metro, he joined the BJP before the elections in Kerala. At the age of 88, he was one of the oldest candidates. He was fielded by the party from Palakkad, where he came second in 2016. The constituency includes parts of the Palakkad municipality, which is controlled by the BJP.

“I am very sure that I will win from Palakkad by about 10,000-15,000 votes,” he told Manorama news channel. I believe that ‘Metroman’ attracted a lot of people. I did not know that I would gain so much love and respect. “He said,” I have made full arrangements to open an office here within 8-10 days. I have already rented a house. “
