I bow to the people of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh for their affection and trust in BJP. I assure them that we will leave no stone unturned in furthering the development journey of these states and serve the people tirelessly.
Election results in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh indicate a strong support for politics of good governance and development. I salute the hardworking BJP Karyakartas in these states for their hardwork which has led to these impressive victories.
And despite what Modi might now say about the election results indicating support for "good governance and development", the earlier allegations were meant not to draw attention to them but to other fears in the Gujarat electorate.
Commentators have said Modi's last-minute intervention might have swung the election the BJP's way -- the party has been in power in Gujarat for 22 years, this will be its seventh stint in power -- but he has done so at a cost to his image.
