Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah on Thursday took to Twitter and thanked the nation for providing a landslide victory to the party. In his tweet, the BJP chief launched a scathing attack against the opposition parties and said that result is a reply of the people to those who ran a malicious campaign of misinformation, personal attacks and baseless allegations.
Today’s mandate also show that the people of this country have fully rejected the politics of casteism, dynastic politics and polarization.
यह परिणाम विपक्ष द्वारा किये गये दुष्प्रचार, झूठ, व्यक्तिगत आक्षेप और आधारहीन राजनीति के विरुद्ध भारत का जनादेश है।
आज का जनादेश यह भी दिखाता है कि भारत की जनता ने देश से जातिवाद, परिवारवाद और तुष्टिकरण को पूरी तरह से उखाड़ फेंककर विकासवाद और राष्ट्रवाद को चुना है।
भारत को नमन।
