Hailing the party’s performance in Odisha and NDA’s huge win in Andhra Pradesh, PM Modi said the Congress could not even save its deposits in these seats…reports Asian Lite News

Thanking the people for supporting BJP-led NDA, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a jibe at the opposition INDIA bloc and said that despite coming together, they could not get as many seats as the BJP on its own.

“Receiving the affection and blessings of people for the third time gives us a new energy. All our opponents, despite coming together couldn’t win as many seats as won by the BJP on its own,” Modi said in his address.

He pointed out that it is the first time in history after 1962 that a party has “returned to power” for the third time.

“People who voted this time, are higher in number than the total population of many countries. The voters of Jammu and Kashmir have showed great enthusiasm with their record turnout. They have shown a mirror to those who tried to defame India globally,” the Prime Minister said.

“There are many aspects of this mandate. After 1962, it is the first time that a government has returned to power for the third consecutive time after completing its two tenures,” he added.

Hailing the party’s performance in Odisha and NDA’s huge win in Andhra Pradesh, PM Modi said the Congress could not even save its deposits in these seats.

“NDA has registered huge victory in the states where assembly elections took place: Arunachal Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and Sikkim. Congress has been wiped out in these states…they would have even found it difficult to save their deposits. BJP is going to form the government in Odisha and also registered great performance in the Lok Sabha polls in the state,” PM Modi said.

He emphasised that the BJP’s win on the Thrissur seat of Kerala is a moment for which BJP workers had been waiting for generations.

The Prime Minister added that NDA government has performed very well in Andhra Pradesh and Bihar under the leadership of Chandrababu Naidu and Nitish Kumar respectively.

“BJP also won a seat in Kerala. Our workers have kept fighting in the state for generations. The moment they were waiting for generations has finally come. Our numbers doubled in Telangana. Our party has done almost clean sweep in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Delhi, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and some other states. In Andhra Pradesh, under the leadership of Chandrababu Naidu, NDA has performed brilliantly. In Bihar, under Nitish Kumar’s leadership, NDA has performed very well,” he said.

He further attacked the Opposition parties on the issue of corruption and said the NDA government will keep on taking strong action against corruption during the third term.

“If the India of 21st century has to move forward, it will have to take strict action against corruption. Digital India and technology have restrained many ways of corruption. But the fight against corruption is also becoming more difficult. When corruption is appreciated for political benefits, defying all limits of shamelessness, it gives huge power to corruption. That’s why NDA government’s huge priority will be to eradicate all forms of corruption,” he said.

Prime Minister Modi said the country would write a new chapter of taking big decisions during its third term.

“In the last 10 years, India took many big decisions. The idea of ‘Nation First’ gives us faith in achieving unbelievable targets…We carried out the world’s biggest beneficiary schemes. 70 years after independence, 12 crore people received tap water, 4 crore people received pucca houses, and 80 crore people received free ration,” PM Modi said in his address.

He highlighted steps like abrogation of Article 370, Covid management and reforms in GST and banking sectors and said it is ‘Modi Ki Guarantee’ that the government will continue to take big steps.

“Because of the idea of ‘Nation First’, Article 370 was abrogated from Kashmir. Reforms like GST, IBC (Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code) and banking reforms took place…even during the COVID-19 pandemic, we took the decision that was to the country’s benefit. We took steps defying all pressure. Because of this, today India is the world’s fastest-growing economy. This idea will make us Atmanirbhar (self-reliant),” PM Modi said.

“If you work 10 hours, Modi will work 18 hours. If you take 2 steps, Modi will walk 4 steps. We Indians will walk together, and take the country forward. The country will write a new chapter of making big decisions in the third term. And this is the ‘Modi Ki Guarantee’,” he added.

The Prime Minister also remembered his late mother and said women of this country never allowed him to feel her absence.

“This moment is very emotional for me. This was my first election after the death of my mother. But mothers, sisters and daughters never allowed me to feel her absence. Wherever I went, I received enormous blessings of people. Women broke all the records of voting in this election,” he further stated. (ANI)
