BJP had won 115 seats in 2012 but fell short of the 100-seat mark in 2017 as the Patidar anger bit into its final tally though it was able to fight off the dreaded anti-incumbency factor across the state.

PM Modi speaks at BJP HQ after BJP's win in assembly elections:

  • 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
  • Gujarat election results are historic. In this day and age, for a party to keep winning for so long
  • 30 years back, poison of caste was spread so badly in Gujarat that it took workers like me 30 years to get rid of it. In last few months there were attempts again to sow seeds of casteism, but people rejected it. I congratulate them, but people must be alert
  • After 2014, there is hunger for development. Even if you do not like BJP, do not try to derail the progress being made towards development
  • So many conspiracies were hatched in Gujarat by Congress, misinformation was being spread. People cannot bear if anyone makes fun of 'vikas'
