Narendra Modi, Prime Minister
The "poison" of casteism was spread so badly in Gujarat that it took workers like me 30 years to get rid of it. In last few months, there were attempts again to sow seeds of casteism, but people rejected it.
Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister
This victory reiterates pan India trust of people in the development agenda and policies of our government led by PM @narendramodi ji.
Rahul Gandhi, Congress President
My Congress brothers and sisters, you have made me proud. You fought anger with dignity.
Amit Shah, BJP President
This is a victory of development over dynasty and polarisation.
Vijay Rupani, Gujarat Chief Minister
Abhar Gujarat(Thank you Gujarat)!It's the victory of the people of Gujarat, their unshakable faith in the agenda of development, castless and classless society. We are indeed blessed!And promise to live up to the expectations more than before".
Hardik Patel, Patel leader
I congratulate the BJP which has won by tampering with the EVMs. Though people of Gujarat had taken a decision(of uprooting the BJP), the ruling party won through money power and by tampering with EVMs.
What a victory! In Gujarat, the winner limped across the finish line with a yound sprinter close on his heels.
Ahmed Patel, Congress leader
Congress never wanted to play a Hindu card...There was no intention of soft Hindutva behind it. That was their (BJP's) intention. During campaign Rahul Gandhi travelled more through roads, and hence visited several temples.
Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister
All sections of society have voted above caste politics. This is a win of development politics of the prime minister.
Mamata Banerjee, TMC chief
It is a temporary ad face-saving win, but it shows a moral defeat for BJP. Gujarat voted against atrocities, anxiety and injustice caused to the common people, Gujarat belled the cat for 2019.
Manohar Parrikar, Goa Chief Minister
Prime Minister has his magic. He is pushing the party ahead. He is one leader who has higher popularity than the party. Reverse is the case with Rahul Gandhi. His popularity is lower than his party.
Shashi Tharoor, Congress leader
In the morning, we (Congress) were leading on some 75 seats which is a very good number. If you see in the last elections, we have improved the number of seats in the assembly (Gujarat).
