VINIT WAHI / NEW DELHI
BJP president Amit Shah today expressed hope that NDA will form the next Government at the Centre with over 300 seats.
Briefing media at the party headquarters here today, he said, 133 schemes of the Narendra Modi led government has touched every section of the society in the country whether it is poor, farmers, women, villages or city. He further said the government has enhanced the respect of the country all over the world and India has become a power centre in the globe.
The BJP President said, after a long time, the people of the country have seen a general election where inflation and corruption issues were missing. Mr Shah said Prime Minister addressed 142 public meetings in this election and has done four road shows.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was present at the Press conference, said he believes that it is India’s responsibility to take the power of this democracy to the world. Mr Modi said, the election was spectacular and held in a positive manner.
The Prime Minister said during his campaigning he thanked the countrymen for their blessings for the last five years. He expressed confidence that his government will come to power with absolute majority for second consecutive time.
“Mera mat hai ki purn bahumat ki sarkar fir banayenge [my intuition is that we will form the government again with simple majority]. Rarely has it happened that a majority government, after completing five years, will come to power again,” Modi said.
Modi said he wanted to thank the country, the people “who remained with me through highs and lows”.
Unexpected things happened on the same day five years ago, Modi said, when betting rackets were predicting that the BJP would get around 220 seats. “Along with our coming to power, there was a big casualty. Some people invested heavily in betting rackets and lost crores of rupees. I just wanted to remind you that results were declared on this day five years ago, we proved everyone wrong. Our anti-corruption campaign started well before we even came to power,” he said.
Modi asserted that his party had followed a meticulous programme throughout and despite all odds, he had stuck to it. “I did not miss one poll rally,” he said.
