NEW DELHI – Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Thursday, said that people of Gujarat have broken all records by giving the biggest mandate to the BJP in the history of the state in the Assembly polls.
“I had told the people of Gujarat that this time Narendra’s record should be broken. I promised that Narendra will work hard so that Bhupendra (chief minister of the state) can break Narendra’s record. Gujarat has broken all records by giving the biggest mandate to BJP in the history of Gujarat,” the Prime Minister said while addressing BJP workers at the party’s headquarters after the saffron party’s record win in the Gujarat Assembly election.
He said the results of Gujarat have proven how strong the desire of the common man for a developed India is.
“The message is clear that whenever there is a challenge before the country, people show their faith in BJP,” the Prime Minister contended.
He said the last few elections should be analysed on a big canvas.
“Those who call themselves neutral, who need to be neutral, where they stand, when and how they change colours? And how they play the game, it is very important for the country to know this,” the Prime Minister said, taking a dig at the Opposition.
He thanked the poll panel for conducting elections peacefully.
“As far as I know, re-polling in any poll booth was not required. I also want to thank the voters of Himachal. The difference between the number of votes for BJP and Congress was less than 1 per cent,” he said.
The BJP has created history by coming to power for the seventh consecutive time with a thumping majority in Gujarat. After the results were announced party workers could be seen dancing and singing in large numbers at the party headquarters in Gandhinagar and Delhi.
