Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed on Thursday that the BJP’s recent victories in three states’ Assembly elections were the result of the tireless efforts of all party members.
Following a meeting of BJP MPs today, Union Minister Prahlad Joshi addressed the media, saying, “In today’s BJP Parliamentary party meeting, PM Modi stated that the party’s overwhelming victory in three states was the outcome of everyone’s hard work.”
“The PM appreciated everyone’s work. He also said that all BJP MPs and ministers have to participate in Vikas Bharat Sankalp Yatra from December 22 to 25 January.”
Joshi said that during the meeting held ahead of the commencement of proceedings of the day, the Prime minister said the election victory should not be attributed to anyone’s personal victory but was a collective win for the party.
At the meeting the PM also asked party members to not call him “Modi ji.”
“Don’t distance me from the public by making me ‘Modi ji’. I am Modi,” Prahlad Joshi said citing the Prime Minister.
Apart from this Union Minister and BJP leader Joshi said, “PM Modi shared an interesting fact today. While being in government when the Congress party faced elections 40 times in states, it got success only seven times. Whereas BJP got a chance to seek repeat mandate 39 times and got success 22 times.”
“Our percentage is 56 percent and Congress’s is 18 percent. Thus the figures prove that people’s biggest choice now is BJP,” Joshi said.
