Victory of Bihar’s Aspirations, Pride: PM Modi on NDA Win in State
JP Nadda, Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh were present at event held to celebrate the BJP victory in Bihar.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed BJP workers at the party headquarters in Delhi on Wednesday, 11 November, after the NDA’s win in the Bihar Legislative Assembly elections, congratulating and thanking citizens for having enthusiastically participated in the festival of democracy.
Speaking specifically about the victory in Bihar, PM Modi said that the secret to winning the polls had been the slogan 'Sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabka vishwaas'.
The prime minister also spoke about women voters who had a role in the BJP’s victory, saying that the party has a large group of silent voters which is voting for them repeatedly.
PM further asked the public to remain cautious of COVID-19 infection as they celebrated Diwali.
‘People’s Preference for BJP Increasing’
PM Modi said that people’s preference for the BJP is increasing, adding that it was the only party in Bihar whose seats have increased despite being in government three times.
Modi added that whether it is economic reforms, agricultural reforms, security of the country, education, new arrangements or the interest of farmers and labourers, it is the BJP which the country is relying on the most today.
India’s Election Process a Matter of Pride
“Poll win or loss is a different thing, but our election process is a matter of pride for every Indian,” he said.
PM Modi said that the fact that there was peace during the counting and no re-polling or recounting was ordered showed the strength of the nation, also pointing out that this took place despite a pandemic.
“I congratulate the people, the EC and the administration for clean elections across the country,” PM Modi said.
The prime minister also congratulated NDA workers as well as their families for the success of their work and contribution to the elections, also heartily praising BJP President JP Nadda for the victory.
PM Modi also reflected on the party’s trajectory, saying that at one point in time, they had just two seats and a two-room office. “Today, we are in the entire nation and are winning hearts of everyone!” he said.
‘Dynasty Politics A Threat to Democracy’
Condemning “a national level political party” for being involved in family politics, PM Modi said that in such situations BJP’s role further increases.
PM Modi further said: “In our party, we have to further strengthen the principles of democracy, that is what makes our party powerful.”
Without naming Bengal or Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee PM Modi alleged that those who can’t challenge their party democratically, resort to killing BJP workers. But that won’t help, he said.
‘Celebrate Diwali, Stay Cautious of COVID’
PM Modi asked the public to take care of themselves and their families and stay cautious of COVID-19, as they celebrate Diwali. He also asked people to follow “vocal for local” as they did their shopping.
“Diwali is just around the corner, celebrate it with full fervour. Take care of yourself and your family, and stay cautious of COVID. Also, everyone must remember the resolve of ‘vocal for local’ while purchasing goods from market.”
Senior BJP leaders such as party President JP Nadda, Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah as well as Defence Minister Rajnath Singh were present at the event which was held to celebrate the party’s victory in the Bihar polls on Tuesday.
