Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh Results Show India is Ready For Reforms, Says PM Modi


New Delhi, Dec. 18: Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on Monday evening addressed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers in Delhi after party’s victory in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections. Expressing his delight on the elections results in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, PM Modi thanked people of the two states for choosing ‘Vikas’. PM Modi said the election results are a slap in the face of those who claimed that GST would affect the poll outcome.


“From Uttar Pradesh civic polls to elections in Maharashtra, BJP has scored remarkable victories. Recent elections results have proven that the country is ready for reform, is looking towards things that perform in a positive way and believes in transformation,” said PM Modi. “The way the people of Himachal Pradesh have supported us shows that people are fed up with misgovernance and misdeeds by the incumbent government in the state. They have given BJP a positive vote,” he added.

Indian PM recalled how BJP came to power in Gujarat in 1995 and said since then the winning streak continues. “BJP won all the seats it contested in 1989 Lok Sabha polls. We won most of the seats we contested in 1990. In 1995, in 1998, in 2002, in 2007 and in 2012 we won. We won most seats in Lok Sabha polls too,” he said.

Hitting out at Congress, PM Modi said people of Gujarat taught a lesson to those who mocked development. “So many conspiracies were hatched in Gujarat by Congress and misinformation was being spread. People cannot bear if anyone makes fun of ‘Vikas’,” he said. “After 2014, there is a hunger for development. Even if you do not like BJP, do not try to derail the progress being made towards development,” he added.

“We took three decades to remove the poison of casteism from Gujarat. We took Gujarat on the path of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’. Sadly, a few people who were hungry for power, they tried to sow the seeds of casteism. Gujarat has been rejecting those people and has rejected them again. We also have to be moe careful now on. Our Mantra remains ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas.’,” PM Modi said.

Earlier, addressing BJP workers, party president Amit Shah expressed his gratitude towards people of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh for delivering mandate in party’s favour. Shah slammed Congress for playing caste-based politics and making derogatory comments against PM Modi during the election campaign. INDIA.COM
