Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday took a dig at Congress, confidently claiming that BJP will win the 2019 polls and asked them to prepare for the 2024 general elections.
With BJP in the lead with 99 seats in Gujarat, the government is set to rule the state for the sixth time.
Speaking to reporters in Lucknow, Adityanath heaped praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah and further went on to say that people have removed the Congress and its leadership day-by-day.
The CM challenged them and said that Congress must come up with a strong strategy to compete in 2024.
Adityanath suggested that the support of people in Himachal and Gujarat have continuously proved their inclination towards positive and development-oriented politics.
"The victories in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh have proven that Modiji's leadership is glorious. The country has approved of the revolutionary steps taken towards complete reform by the honorable Prime Minister. These steps will take the country closer to becoming an economic superpower," he said.
The UP CM urged opposition leaders to finally accept PM Modi's leadership, following the favorable election results.
Adityanath has previously spoken about his focus on reforming different sectors of the state.
The party hopes it will be able to convert the momentum of its victories in a number of states since 2014 into a historic win for Narendra Modi in 2019.
