Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticized the opposition for their pessimism and ignorance following the BJP‘s victory in the recent assembly elections in three states. In a tweet on X (formerly known as Twitter), PM Modi warned against their divisive agenda and expressed that the people’s wisdom will lead to more surprises in the future.
He also warned the Opposition that their divisive agenda won’t work and they have to be prepared for many more meltdowns ahead.
The BJP’s impressive performance in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan, caught not only their opponents but also some pollsters off guard. The party’s success in these Hindi heartland states was seen as a significant achievement, especially after losing Karnataka to the Congress earlier this year.
Addressing a jubilant crowd at the BJP headquarters, PM Modi stated that the election results showcased the public’s support for their fight against corruption. He also highlighted that the Congress and the opposition’s INDIA bloc should understand that merely gathering dynastic leaders for photo opportunities does not win the trust of the people. The voters’ message to these corrupt parties was clear: reform or face defeat.
- Madhya Pradesh
The BJP’s victory in Madhya Pradesh, where they have been in power for 18 years, was a boost for Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan and a setback for the rejuvenated Congress led by Kamal Nath. The party secured a two-thirds majority with 163 seats out of 230, while the Congress managed to win 66 seats.
In Rajasthan, the BJP’s triumph ended the tradition of not re-electing the incumbent party. By securing 115 seats out of 199 constituencies, the BJP emerged victorious, leaving the Congress with 69 seats. This outcome surprised many Congress leaders who had hoped to retain their power in the state.
The Chhattisgarh election results were also unexpected for the Congress, as they were unable to fend off the BJP’s challenge and secure another term in power.
Overall, the BJP’s success in these states has given the party confidence and momentum as they look ahead to the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
