“The BJP’s win in Kurhani assembly bypoll in Bihar is an indication of times to come in the state,” Modi said.
Modi assured the people of Himachal Pradesh that BJP’s development commitment is 100 per cent.
“I’m thankful to voters in Himachal also where our vote share was less than 1 per cent below that of winning party,” Modi said.
“I bow before people, their blessings are overwhelming.. BJP’s win in Kurhani assembly bypoll in Bihar an indication of times to come in state,” Modi said.
Congratulating the Gujarat chief minister, Modi said had told the people of the state that this time Narendra’s record should be broken. “I promised that Narendra will work hard so that Bhupendra can break Narendra’s record. Gujarat has broken all records by giving the biggest mandate to the BJP in the history of Gujarat,” Modi said.
Riding high on the charisma of Modi, the BJP retained power in Gujarat for a record seventh straight term pulverising the opposition to secure the biggest majority ever in the state.
