GUWAHATI: Terming the Lok Sabha election results as "historic" and "unprecedented", Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal Thursday said the mandate is for nationalism and faster development of a new India.

In a series of tweets, Sonowal gave full credit to the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah for BJP's landslide victory.

"A historic day for India. It's a vote for nationalism and faster development. It's a vote for #NewIndia. Congratulations to the people of India for choosing a strong & honest Govt led by PM Shri @narendramodi ji," Sonowal said.

Stating that the outcome is a mandate for Modi, the Assam BJP leader claimed that it is unprecedented in electoral history and a wave in favour of a "great leader decided national and state elections the way #ModiWave has done for @BJP4India".
