Lok Sabha Elections 2014 Live – Sushma says it is purely a BJP victory

Bhopal, May 16 : As trends indicated BJP‘s triumph, Sushma Swaraj today said it is purely a BJP victory as it got a majority of its own but ducked questions on her ministerial berth, saying it is the prerogative of the Prime Minister to form his own Cabinet.
“This is a pure BJP victory. Although we have the numbers to form the government of our own without any pressures but we will form a government together with our allies,” Swaraj said.
To questions on her joining the Modi government, she termed them as “hypothetical” saying such queries were “premature”.
“Such questions are hypothetical. It is the prerogative of the Prime Minister to form his own Cabinet and certain decisions are collectively taken by the Parliamentary Board. Thus such questions are premature,” she told reporters when asked about her joining the Cabinet.
There are reports of her being miffed over not being offered a Cabinet berth of her choice and is reported to have told the BJP leadership that she be given a position according to her stature.
She is keen to get one of the key ministries among the top four – Home, Defence, External Affairs or Finance.
