NEW DELHI: Amid blowing of conch and beatings of drums, the BJP headquarter has turned into a sea of festivities, with saffron flag of the outfit fluttering in scores of party workers. Union Ministers are making a beeline to give bytes and also lauded the hard work of party chief Amit Shah, besides stating firmly that the development agenda of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been endorsed by the people.
The unprecedented victory of the BJP as indicated by the early trends appears to have electrified the mood of the party workers. Union Ministers and a number of supporters of Amit Shah seem struggling to control their jubilation.
"The victory belongs to the poor people of the country who have shown faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his development agenda. Dalits have also shown with the verdict that the BJP is the only party which could fulfil their aspirations. The Modi government will firmly stay on path of development," said Union Minister Piyush Goyal, who struggled to make himself audible amidst sloganeering and fire-crackers drowning his soft voice.
Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad termed the impending verdict historical, saying even in Punjab people don't seem to have rejected the NDA in the manner as had been projected. "In all states, the people have backed the BJP in an unprecedented manner. Even people in Manipur have shown faith in the BJP. This verdict is against the negative politics of the Opposition parties and their campaign against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The time has come for them to introspect, said Prasad.
BJP chief's key aide and party general secretary Bhupinder Yadav claimed that the people have endorsed the Modi government's decision on demonetization and rejected the Opposition parties for campaigning against action against black money.
