Yeddyurappa said that Wednesday’s action of destroying terror hideouts by entering inside Pakistan has resulted in a pro-Modi wave in the country.

Bengaluru: Karnataka BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa on Wednesday said India’s ‘preemptive’ strikes on terror camps in Pakistan have created a wave in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and will help the party win over 22 of 28 seats in the state in the coming Lok Sabha polls.

“Yesterday we entered Pakistan territory and destroyed three camps of terrorists. This has brought a pro-Modi wave all through the country. The effect of this will be seen in the Lok Sabha elections,” Yeddyurappa said.

Speaking to reporters in Chitradurga, he said, “It has enthused youths; all this will help us in winning more than 22 Lok Sabha seats (in Karnataka).”

“Modi has shown courage in teaching Pakistan a lesson and in avenging the deaths of 40 martyrs. He had said he will avenge every drop of blood and he is showing that he is doing as he promised. All have welcomed it, opposition parties too are welcoming this,” Yeddyurappa added.

India conducted a major ‘preemptive’ strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed training camp early Tuesday, killing a “very large number” of terrorists, trainers and senior commanders. India’s action comes close on the heels of the Pulwama incident in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed in one of the deadliest terror strikes in decades in Jammu & Kashmir. Tensions between the two nations, however, were heightened further after Pakistan violated Indian airspace and captured an IAF pilot.

At present, the BJP holds 16 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka, while the Congress has 10 and the JD(S) two. The ruling alliance Congress and JD(S), who have decided to contest the Lok Sabha polls together have begun discussions about seat sharing.

Sharing of seats is expected to be a litmus test for both parties with JD(S) demanding for 10-12 seats, while Congress has maintained that seat sharing will be based on merit.
