Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today exulted over BJP’s “stupendous” performance in the Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, stating a “storm” whipped up by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah was sweeping the country. He said people understood demonetisation and other schemes of the Prime Minister Modi and accepted them, and that the results proved it, an official release said. “The entire world has admitted that Modi is a charismatic personality and the country would reach new heights under his leadership,” Das said.
The Chief Minister of the BJP-ruled state added it was wrong to say the saffron party was limited to some states as it has “established its imprint from North-East to Jammu and Kashmir to Kerala.” Das said that the huge majority given to the BJP in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand reflected that people have now become disillusioned with politics of dynasty, casteism and corruption.
The society has given a clear message that it would not stand with those who indulge in vote bank politics, he said in a release. The BJP also won in Muslim-majority areas, giving the message that the community want politics of development and support the party on the issue of three talaq, Das said. “The Congress declined continuously from 2014 and these Assembly results speeded it up. There is no power left for Congress to rise,” the chief minister added.
“The Prime Minister has seen a Congress-free dream, which the people are fulfilling,” he said. BJP president Amit Shah’s popularity has risen with these elections and it has been proved that nobody is like him vis-à-vis poll strategist, he said.
