New Delhi, May 8 (IANS) Expressing confidence about forming the government again with allies, the Congress party said Friday it would bag around 200 seats in the polls.
“The party is running towards the 200 (seat) mark. It will be a Congress-led coalition government,” party leader Kapil Sibal told reporters.
“The kind of information we are getting from the states that went to polls in the last four phases… we are well poised to form the government,” Sibal said.
Delhi, which went to the polls May 7 for the seven Lok Sabha seats, recorded 53 percent voting.
“The way the youth are coming forward to cast their vote clearly shows that they are impressed with our young leadership. The youth of the country favour the Congress and this is a good trend. From all the places, the news for the Congress is good,” Sibal added.
