Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Thursday, thanked the people of Gujarat for giving a massive mandate to the BJP in the Assembly polls in the state, saying he was overcome with emotion seeing the phenomenal election results.
”Thank you, Gujarat. I am overcome with a lot of emotions seeing the phenomenal election results. People blessed politics of development and at the same time expressed a desire that they want this momentum to continue at a greater pace. I bow to Gujarat’s Jan Shakti,” he tweeted.
Modi, whose personal charisma helped the BJP retain power in the state for a record seventh consecutive term, said every BJP worker was a champion. ”This historic win would never be possible without the exceptional hard work of our Karyakartas, who are the real strength of our Party.”
He also thanked the people of Himachal Pradesh for their affection and support for the BJP although the saffron party lost power in the hill state. ”We will keep working to fulfil the aspirations of the state and raise people’s issues in the times to come,” he wrote.
Home Minister Amit Shah, who led the BJP’s campaign in Gujarat, congratulated BJP workers in the state for the party’s historic win under the leadership of the PM, BJP President J P Nadda, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and state BJP chief C R Paatil.
”The people of Gujarat have rejected those who make false promises, and play ‘revdi and appeasement’ politics and voted for the BJP of Narendra Modi which works for the development and people’s welfare.”
Shah said the BJP under Modi has broken all records of development in the state during the last two decades and the people of the state have again given their blessings to the saffron party shattering all records. ”This historic win clearly reflects that women, youth and farmers are all with the BJP,” he added.
“There is pro-incumbency in Gujarat. We are creating a new record in Gujarat as the people of the state have immense faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said.
