PM Modi says poll outcome win for ‘Aatmanirbharta’, attacks Oppn's caste census push
PM Modi said that BJP's hattrick of wins in assembly elections has guaranteed hattrick of wins in Lok Sabha elections.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that the assembly election results are a win for ‘Aatmanirbharta’ and ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas’.
Addressing jubilant party workers at the BJP headquarters in the national capital, he said, “Today's victory in assembly elections is historic and unprecedented. It is the victory of 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas' and self-reliant India”.
In an apparent attack on the caste census push by the Opposition parties, Prime Minister Modi claimed that “several attempts were made to divide country on caste lines.” He reiterated that women, youth, poor and farmers are the only castes in the country and their empowerment would further strengthen the country.
"But, I kept on saying that for me four castes are supreme – and they are women power, youth, farmers, and the poor. The country will be strengthened if these four will be empowered," he said.
The Bharatiya Janata Party registered a decisive victory in the heartland states, routing the rival Congress party in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. It also improved its tally in the southern state of Telangana where it has had limited presence.
Prime Minister Modi said the incumbent parties were thrown out of power in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana “because it was against the youth and had scams in its tenure.”
Referring to the wins in three states, the prime minister asserted that the “hattrick of victories” has guaranteed BJP's hattrick of wins for the Lok Sabha elections.
“The voter needs a well-defined roadmap to improve his lifestyle...India's voter knows that when India moves forward then the state moves forward and the life of every family improves. So, the voter is choosing the BJP continuously,” he said.
