"Don't consider yourself as MLAs but as candidates,” a source quoted former party president Nitin Gadkari as telling the legislators after the party finished with 31 seats in the 70-member assembly.

Sources said that Gadkari said the party was not keen to win over legislators from other parties to cobble a majority in the house. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won 28 seats, while the Congress got only eight. Neither the BJP nor the AAP are keen to form a government.
