New Delhi, Apr 1 (IBNS): BJP chief Amit Shah on Sunday said he is expecting that the Bharatiya Janata Party will increase its seats substantially in states like West Bengal, Odisha and Northeast.

Shah, while speaking to CNN News 18, said he hopes that the BJP will emerge victorious in 23 seats in West Bengal.

West Bengal has been a focus for the saffron party where it had managed to win just 2 out of the 42 seats in 2014. 

BJP will be fighting against the ruling parties like Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress in West Bengal and  Biju Janata Dal in Odisha in the national polls.

Shah said he is hoping to see the BJP gaining clear majority in the Lok Sabha polls.

Speaking to CNN News18, Shah said the BJP was looking to bag between 35-40 seats in these states.

“It will be a 35-40 game,” he said.

Speaking on the issue of leadership in the party, Shah said, “There is only number one in our party and that is Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Were you to look for a number two after him, you wouldn’t find any. As far as the leadership of the party is concerned, I’m very happy to be leading the world’s largest party and often seek suggestions from my seniors whenever occasion arises."

Shah spoke about Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her active participation in politics and said: "This is not her first entry into polls. She has been campaigning for her party for the last 12 years and has proved to be a failure each time. This is her 13th time. Let’s see what she’s able to do.”
