NEW DELHI Prime Minister Modi slammed the Opposition and observed that no party could mislead the voters by donning the mask of secularism. He also assured all state legislative assembly winners that BJP is committed to the Constitution and federalism.
Addressing the crowd of hundreds of BJP workers in the middle of light drizzle, PM Modi said, “Megh raaj bhi aaj humaare beech shamil hone ke liye aa gaye (Even the God of clouds has joined us in our celebrations)”.
“If someone has won today, it is the people, the democracy,” said PM Modi as the crowd burst into loud cheers.
PM Modi also said that this is the win of people who were pining for an honest government, a victory of those who were pining for toilets and basic amenities.
He said, “I assure all state legislative assembly winners that BJP is committed to the Constitution and federalism. I promise them we will work shoulder to shoulder.”
Speaking before Modi, Amit Shah said, “Politics of casteism, dynasty and appeasement politics has been buried in this massive mandate to BJP.”
BJP is leading in over 300 seats and it has crossed the 272 majority mark all by itself. NDA has managed to get as many seats it had won in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
