Prime Minister Narendra Modi has thanked people of Maharashtra and Haryana for their blessings in the assembly polls and assured them that the BJP Government will work harder to serve the public. He was addressing karyakartas at the party headquarters in New Delhi this evening.
Mr Modi said BJP did not get an absolute majority in the last election in Maharashtra and in Haryana it had a majority of just 2 seats. He said, Devendra Fadnvis and Manohar Lal both were first-time chief ministers and they did not even have the experience as Ministers. He said, for five years both Chief Ministers kept working for people’s welfare and as a result, people have again put their faith in them.
The Prime Minister said, in Haryana, the victory was unprecedented because these days the chances of winning in elections again after completing a 5-year term is very less and in such an environment it is a big thing to come back again as the largest party with the trust and blessings of people. He said, BJP’s vote share in Haryana went up to 36 per cent from 33 per cent and it shows people’s endorsement of government’s work.
Mr Modi said, in Maharashtra in the last 50 years, not a single Chief Minister has been able to serve for 5 consecutive years. He said, BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis successfully completed a five-year term as Chief Minister.
Greeting people on Diwali, Mr Modi hoped that the festival of lights will bring new light and energy into the lives of people.
Speaking on the occasion, BJP President Amit Shah said, in Maharashtra, BJP-Shiv Sena is going to form the govt once again with the majority.
He said, in Haryana, there has been a 3 per cent increase in BJP’s vote share since the last time and BJP emerged as the largest party there. He thanked people of both the states for giving their blessings. Mr Shah said people have shown their faith in the speed with which Modi 2.0 government is working.
