Wednesday (October 23): The Maharashtra unit of BJP has started ‘victory’ preparations at its headquarter in Mumbai for tomorrow when counting of votes for the assembly elections will be taken up.
BJP officials have given order of 5000 ‘laddus’ and a huge screen will be put up to see the live coverage of counting. Orders for garlands are also placed, a party official said today.
BJP workers have been asked to reach the party headquarter located near Mantralaya or the state secretariat, in south Mumbai after 10 am on Thursday when the poll trends are expected to emerge.
Voting for the total 288 seats was held on October 21.
Most of the exit polls have predicted a clear majority for the BJP-led alliance comprising the Sena and other parties in the 288-member Assembly.
“We know that we are returning to power for second time. Only curiosity is about numbers,” the official said.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will address reporters on Thursday evening, he added.
