The Bharatiya Janata Party won a “historic” mandate in the Hindi heartland states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh on Sunday as Congress ousted Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) government in Telangana in the results of four states declared on Sunday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaking about the BJP scoring a hat-trick in next year’s Lok Sabha polls on the lines of hat-trick it scored in state polls.
BJP ousted Congress from power in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh and retained Madhya Pradesh.
The results in Hindi heartland states came as a shocker to Congress and a morale-booster to BJP. Congress leaders expressed happiness over victory in Telangana and said the results in the three states were disappointing and the party will rebuild itself in these areas.
Party chief Mallikarjun Kharge said that the party will overcome “temporary setbacks” and prepare fully for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections along with the INDIA parties.
The election results again showed Congress’ vulnerability to take on the BJP in a direct contest. In Telangana, the main adversary of Congress was a regional party.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a gathering at party headquarters on Sunday evening and spoke about the party scoring a hat-trick in next year’s Lok Sabha polls.
He said the mandate in the three states has proved that there is zero tolerance against corruption, appeasement and dynastic politics.
” Voter knows that when India moves ahead then states move ahead. Every family in the country benefits from it. This is why the voter is electing BJP again and again. Some people are even saying that today’s hat-trick has guaranteed the hat-trick of 2024,” he said.
The BJP got an absolute majority in the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The next general elections are likely to be held in April-May next year.
The Prime Minister termed BJP’s victories in the three heartland states as historic and said various sections including the poor, farmers and tribal brothers and sisters were seeing it as their victory.
“Today’s victory is historical and unprecedented…The idea of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ has won today. Today’s victory is of a path towards developed India. It is a victory of our resolve towards Atmanirbhar Bharat. This is a victory of honest, transparent governance,” he added.
PM Modi said that the echo is these results will not be limited to Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan but will be heard all over the world.
“Today, we are seeing the results. There is no alternative to BJP in Madhya Pradesh. BJP has been in power for two decades and even after such a long time, people’s trust in BJP is increasing continuously…In the first public meeting in Chhattisgarh, I said that I had come here to invite the people of the state to our oath-taking ceremony after December 3 when we form the government here,” he said.
He said 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.”
Targeting Congress, he said it is his suggestion to the party and its allies “to stop doing politics that strengthen anti-national elements and ideas to weaken the country.”
Slamming opposition parties who have accused the government of misusing probe agencies, the Prime Minister said the campaign against corruption launched by the BJP’s central government in the country is getting huge public support.
“Those people who are working day and night to defame the investigating agencies which have come down hard on corruption should understand that this election result is also a public support for the fight against corruption,” he said.
Targeting the Congress and INDIA block, he said a lesson from the elections is that the country’s trust cannot be won just by a few family members coming together on the stage.
“These election results are also a big lesson for Congress and its ‘ghamandiya gathbandhan’. The lesson is that the country’s trust cannot be won just by a few family members coming together on the stage. The spirit of national service that should be there to win the hearts of the people of the country is not there in the ‘ghamandiya gathbandhan'”.
He accused opposition parties, specially Congress, of trying to divide the country based on castes.
“..In this election, there were efforts to divide the country based on castes. I kept saying that for me, four castes are important – Nari Shakti, Yuva Shakti, Kisaan aur Gareeb Parivaar,” he said.
“…I request all the BJP workers to move ahead of Modi’s guarantees from today…Jahan dusron se umeed khatam hoti hai wahan se Modi ki guarantee shuru hoti hai,” he said.
The Prime Minister expressed gratitude to women for their support to the BJP.
“I want to express my gratitude to the ‘Nari Shakti’ of the country. I would often say during my rallies that ‘Nari Shakti’ has decided that BJP’s flag will rise high in the elections,” he said.
PM Modi also said the party’s bond with the people of Telangana is “unbreakable”. (ANI)
