GANDHINAGAR: Union home minister Amit Shah said on Sunday that BJP’s record-breaking win in last month’s Gujarat elections has sent the message that Narendra Modi will be re-elected PM in the 2024 general election.
“This result is important not for Gujarat alone. There will be (Lok Sabha) elections in 2024, and the entire country is prepared to once more make Narendra Modi the PM,” Shah said.
Gujarat’s message has reached from Kashmir to Kanyakumari (north to south) and from Dwarka to Kamakhya (west to east) that “Modi Saheb will again become PM in 2024”, Shah said in his LS constituency where he inaugurated and laid foundations for various projects.
In a veiled reference to opposition Congress and AAP, Shah said the people of Gujarat responded to those who had tried to defame the state and PM Modi by helping BJP retain power with a record 156 seats in the 182-member assembly.
“The people of Gujarat have worked to end the poison of casteism and rejected those making empty, false and alluring promises. The people of Gujarat have responded to those who tried to defame Gujarat and Narendra Modi,” Shah said.
Shah said there is no need to elaborate on the work done by the BJP government for development of the state, as people respond to it in elections. “There is not a single state where one party has ruled uninterrupted for 27 years. Gujarat is the only state where BJP has ruled (for 27 years and more.”
Shah said when the Gujarat elections were announced, the Congress thought this time was its chance. “People from Delhi also arrived here with the promise of giving this and that for free,” he said.
Every single BJP worker in the state is indebted to the people for their support and feels proud of this fact, the Union minister said. The party won 34 of the 40 seats reserved for Scheduled Tribe and Scheduled Caste candidates in the state, he said.
Shah paid tributes to army personnel who laid down their lives for the country. “Numerous army personnel have sacrificed their lives protecting our borders. On Army Day, my ‘shradhhanjali’ (tribute) to all the known and unknown Army personnel who have sacrificed their lives,” Shah added. In a tweet on the occasion of Army Day, the Union home minister said “Indian Army is synonymous with valour and courage.”
