“India wins yet again,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday as he led his Bharatiya Janata Party towards what looks set to be a resounding victory for a second term in office, as his message of nationalism, national security and Hindu pride struck a chord among voters across large swathes of India.
The BJP was heading for a thumping victory in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, which Modi attributed to the ‘sabka vishwas’ (trust of everyone).
Modi also said a strong and inclusive India will be built by its people.
“Sabka sath + Sabka Vikas + Sabka Vishwas Vijai Bharat (taking everyone along, development for all, trust of all is equal to victorious India). Together we grow. Together we prosper. Together we will build a strong and inclusive India. India wins yet again! #VijayiBharat,” he tweeted.
Mandate shows people opted for development and nationalism: Amit Shah
BJP President Amit Shah thanked the nation for voting them back to power calling it a victory for the whole country.
In a series of tweets in Hindi, he thanked the country saying “Phir ek baar Modi Sarkar” (once again, Modi government).
“This is a victory of the entire nation. A victory of hopes of the youth, poor and farmers. This grand victory is a triumph of people’s confidence in Prime Minister Modi’s five-year of development and strong leadership.
“I convey my heartfelt greetings to Modiji on behalf of BJP workers.”
He also congratulated the people of the nation and the party workers. “This result is India’s mandate against opposition’s propaganda, lies, personal insinuations and baseless politics.
“Today’s mandate also shows that the people of India opted for development and nationalism and have completely uprooted casteism, dynastic politics and appeasement from the country,” he said.
