The Assembly election results are out for all the five states and PM Narendra Modi-led BJP clearly stole the show! Lauding PM Modi’s understanding of India, Executive Chairman of Flipkart Sachin Bansal tweeted a lesson for the entrepreneurs which can be learnt from none other than our PM. “#ElectionResults show how deeply @narendramodi understands India. Lesson for entrepreneurs: be fanatic about understanding your audiences”. PM Modi was also quick to respond. “More than my understanding, it is the people who have trusted the BJP & we will never betray this faith,” he tweeted in a modest way.
A day after the BJP’s spectacular victories in the recently held elections, PM Modi said the results in the five states indicated the emergence of “a new India”, where poor were not seeking sops but asking for opportunities to grow. “A New India is on the horizon. I am seeing the election results in the five states as a foundation for a New India — a New India of the dreams of 65 per cent population of under-35 youths and of uniquely aware women groups. A new India in which the poor are looking for an opportunity to do something instead of seeking something is a new change,” the PM said, in his victory speech at the BJP headquarters. The Prime Minister set 2022 as the target year for bringing in this New India. “I don’t live by election calculations. My target is 2022, not 2019. 2022 will mark 75 years of India’s Independence. We have five years to contribute to change India,” said Modi.

Addressing the concerns of the middle class in his speech to party workers, Modi linked the same to the empowerment of the poor. “If the power of the poor and dreams of the middle-class are put together, nobody can stop the nation from going to the peak of growth. Sometimes people from the middle class have to bear more burden. They have to pay taxes, follow rules and social norms. The middle class bears the burden of the economy more and this burden on them should come down. Once the poor in the country get the strength to bear the burden, the burden of the middle class will come down,” the PM said.

Pointing out that the BJP had become “the largest political party in the world”, Modi said, “We must be proud to be associated with the biggest democratic party in the world. This is a golden era for the BJP.” Ahead of Sunday’s celebrations, the party headquarters was adorned with cutouts of Modi and Shah. As Modi arrived at the office after a short “victory march” — cheered on by workers and supporters who lined both sides of the road — he was greeted with chants of “Modi, Modi” and “Jai Shri Ram”. Those hailing him included leaders of the BJP parliamentary board.
