Seemingly unfazed by the opinion polls predicting a hung assembly in Karnataka, BJP President Amit Shah on Wednesday exuded confidence that his party will win the assembly elections in the southern state with 'comfortable majority.'
In an exclusive interview to India TV, the BJP chief also ruled out taking or lending support to any party in the elections. Confident of the saffron party's victory, Shah said that the people of Karnataka have faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi and expect development to take place in the state under BS Yeddyurappa's leadership.

"No ways, there will not be a hung assembly in Karnataka," Shah said, adding, "we will win with comfortable majority and form government."
"Also, there is no question of giving or taking support because we are going to form government here with clear majority," he said.
Gauging the mood in Karnataka, Shah also said that there is excitement and craze among the people who are assured of proper law and order, infrastructure, growth prospects once BJP comes to power in the state.
Taking a jibe at Siddaramaiah, the BJP president said that the Karnataka chief minister wouldn't have decided to fight from two seats had he been confident of his victory.
On corruption allegations on CM face and senior party leader Yeddyurappa , Shah pointed out that the former CM had resigned on moral grounds back then.
"Later on, the allegations were put aside. Judgment had mentioned that the case is fabricated," he added.
