"Therefore, there is no chance that BJP will come to power in 2019 elections in the State because there is no alternative to Naveen Patnaik yet here", said BJD Vice-President and senior Minister Surya Narayan Patro.

Answering a query outside the Ravi Bhavan, a complex of government guest houses here, on the forthcoming Karnataka polls, Shah said, "You write it down".

"BJP has been often criticised that it is a north India but now everyone can see that the party has representatives in Ladakh, Kutch, and in several states in the northeast". State BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey also attributed the party's performance to the Prime Minister and Shah.

"I would say, if Amit Shah is a student of post graduate in politics, Rahul Gandhi is still in nursery class", he told reporters here when asked to compare Shah and Gandhi's style of functioning.

"As far as Left is concerned, it is proved that Left not "right" for any part of the country" (Jahan tak Left ka sawaal hai, ye siddh ho chuka hai ki Left desh ke kisi bhi kshetra ke liye right nahi hai).

After the verdict given by the northeastern states, the BJP is now eyeing Odisha, West Bengal, and Kerala. "We will march towards Karnataka, with this massive victory with us", Shah said.

Worth mentioning, BJD won Bijepur bypoll in Bargarh district defeating BJP by over 41,000 votes.

In December previous year, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had written a letter to Karnataka BJP President B S Yeddyurappa assuring him to extend best possible cooperation on drinking water issue.
