New Delhi: With
early trends putting BJP in number two position in Uttar Pradesh, the
party on Tuesday said it took up issues which were not “sensational”
even as it gave credit to party president Nitin Gadkari for the
performance.

The party also said “negating” voters did not
help the Congress in Uttar Pradesh.

Referring to exit polls, BJP
spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said numbers will speak “much more than
savvy analysis”.

“The party campaign was not deliberately
kept low key. We took issues which were not sensational...governance has
to be the agenda,” Sitharaman said, adding that she would prefer to wait
for final results before making an elaborate comment.

To a poser
on whether the BJP will credit its president for its performance, she said
“absolutely” the credit will go “entirely” to him.

Asked
whether the absence of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was behind the
performance of the party, she said none of the BJP CMs came for
campaigning.

As per the trends available, the BJP has sprang a
surprise by leading in 60 seats, whereas the ruling BSP was leading in 42
seats. The Congress-RLD alliance was trailing on the fourth place by
leading in 21 seats.

Taking an early lead Samajwadi Party was
ahead in 141 seats of 403 in Uttar Pradesh Assembly in the counting of
votes which was underway.
