With Bahatiya Janata Party set to form government in Uttar Pradesh, party chief Amit Shah hailed the poll victory as a result of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s corruption free regime and his pro-poor policies. “It is a victory of BJP’s ideology and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pro-poor and development policies,” BJP chief Amit Shah said on assembly poll results.
Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said good governance and good delivery of promises has led to a BJP win. “The poor have given a decisive verdict that Modi is our leader and is working for our welfare…women, youth and even minorities have voted for us,” he said.
Union Minister Jitendra Singh hailed Modi, attributing the results in Uttar Pradesh particularly to “credibility” the Prime Minister enjoys across India. The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office said the party’s showing underscored the country is heading towards “true democracy”.
“The most important contribution of Modi phenomenon is that it has enabled voters to cast votes for development, going beyond castes, creeds, religions. It has helped them get rid of feudal mindset,” Singh said.
Another Union minister Sanjiv Balyan said there was no division on communal lines in UP. “The election was fought on issues such as law and order, development. The new generation understood the importance of bringing in the BJP,” he said.
BJP MP from Gorakhpur Adityanath said the SP-Congress alliance and the BSP have been totally rejected by the people in UP. People want development without bias. They want security which the BJP can only provide,” he said.
