Vadodara: Gujarat Energy Minister Saurabh Patel has claimed that BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will win the election to Vadodara Lok Sabha seat by a “margin of over five lakh votes”.
“We expect majority of votes for Modi and a victory margin of over five lakh votes,” Patel, the poll in-charge of Modi for the Vadodara election, told PTI here today.
Patel, who represents Akota Assembly seat of Vadodara, has been camping in the city ever since the poll process began and supervised party network in all seven Assembly segments falling under the Vadodara LS constituency.
“This will be first time in the country's history of parliamentary polls, that a Prime Ministerial nominee will win Vadodara Lok Sabha seat with such a huge margin,” he claimed.
Vadodara saw a record 70.57 per cent polling this year which is the highest ever recorded in the city in Lok Sabha polls since 1951, he said.
