He was also confident of winning all the 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh in the elections due in April-May.

"It is a matter of immense happiness that all the eight candidates of the BJP have won. Definitely, this is an indication of the future. It will be 80 out of 80 (Lok Sabha seats) in UP, and 400-plus for NDA (National Democratic Alliance) nationally," Trivedi, one of the victorious candidates of the BJP, told PTI.
