After the stellar performance in the Bihar Assembly polls and the bypolls to various state Assemblies, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday celebrated the triumph at its headquarters in Delhi's Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg today. The NDA won a total of 125 seats (122 needed to claim majority) out of the 243 constituencies in the Bihar Election. BJP emerged as the second single largest party, by winning 74 seats, just one short of RJD which won 75. The NDA alliance is all set to form the next government in Bihar under the leadership of Nitish Kumar once again. The BJP also performed well in Bypolls that took place across 11 states.
Those who aren't able to challenge us in a democratic way, they have taken up killing of BJP workers in some parts of the country to fulfil their desires. I want to make them understand that this dance of death won't help them win a mandate, PM Modi said while addressing BJP workers.
In our party, we have to further strengthen the principles of democracy, that is what makes our party powerful, he added.
Youth of the country today knows it very well that dynasty politics poses the biggest threat to democracy. Unfortunately, a national-level political party is caught in the web of family politics. In such a situation, the role of BJP increases even more.
The people of Bharat have clearly stated that the only point of debate during elections would be development in the 21st century Bharat. People of Bharat are asking every other party to come to this plank, and showing them that these are the real issues, the Prime Minister said.
The secret to winning Bihar elections is 'Sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabka vishwaas'. It is a victory of the development works in Bihar, said PM Modi.
The way we have fought this pandemic from Janta Curfew till today has been reflected in these election results. Every life saved from COVID is a success story for Bharat, he said.
Everyone is asking how did this happen? We can find an answer in yesterday's results. The people of Bharat are repeatedly making it clear that the chance to serve the country will be given to those who work sincerely towards the country's development, PM Modi at BJP HQ.
Addressing party workers and boosting their moral, PM Modi said, "no re-polling and peaceful conduct of voting were the distinctive features of Bihar Elections 2020. Earlier there used to be news of booth capturing etc."
I congratulate every worker of NDA as well as their families for the success of their dedicated work and contribution in the elections. I want to congratulate BJP President JP Nadda ji for the victory in the polls, says PM Modi.
I want to thank the people of the country, not because they made BJP win the polls across the states, but also because all of us enthusiastically participated in the festival of democracy, PM Modi said.
I thank everyone involved in conducting fair elections including election commission, people, party, party workers, says PM Modi.
Bihar Elections 2020 was Bharat's first big elections after the world was hit by the COVID pandemic. From viewpoint of contributing to the elections to bringing people out to vote for us, it has been a big and defining period.
I salute the public for the majority it gave to the NDA. I thank PM Narendra Modi for his support, Bihar CM and JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar.
