2nd Modi Wave Sweeps Through The Country As Oppositions Congratulate
The nation has decided! It’s ‘Phir Ek Baar Modi Sarkar’ and the saffron flags are waving high and wide across the world. With BJP party and workers rejoice and Narendra Modi showing again that he is the leader the country wants. And the opposition leaders have recognized this fact too. While probably licking their wounds in dark corners of their bedrooms alone, they are congratulating the Prime Minister on his massive victory through their respective social media.
The first opposition leader to congratulate PM Modi was National Conference leader and former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah tweeted, saying:
“So, the exit polls were correct. All that’s left is to congratulate the BJP and NDA for a stellar performance.” He added, “Credit where credit is due. PM Modi Sahin and Mr Amit Shah put together a winning alliance and a very professional campaign. Bring on the next five years.”
He was followed by outgoing Andhra Pradesh chief minister and TDP head N Chandrababu Naidu, wishing Modi and his opponent YS Jaganmohan Reddy and Patnaik on his victory:
“I respect people’s mandate and hope that the new govt will live up to their expectations and serve them with honesty. My heartfelt congratulations to @ysjagan garu. I also congratulate Sri @narendramodi and @BJP4India. Lauding Sri@Naveen_Odisha for his thumping win in Odisha.”
Modi read Naidu’s tweet and thanked him for his “good wishes”.
Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti, too, came forward and congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi while also writing a message for the Congress party.
“Congratulations to Narendra Modi Ji for a historic mandate. Today surely belongs to BJP and it’s allies. Time for Congress to get an Amit Shah (sic).”
West Bengal chief minister and Trinamool Congress head Mamata Banerjee, who had a pretty vicious fight with the BJP during the election campaigns, also congratulated the winners.
“Congratulations to the winners. But, all losers are not losers. We have to do a complete review and then we will share our views with you all. Let the counting process be completed fully and the VVPATs matched.”
Another regional leader Biju Janata Dal and Odisha chief minister, who won the seat for the fifth time in a row, too tweeted his best wishes.
“I congratulate them (BJP). I rang up the Prime Minister in the morning & congratulated him… We’ll have a constructive relationship with the central govt for the development & welfare of Odisha.”
Congress president Rahul Gandhi out forth his best wishes for PM Modi too. His party failed miserably again securing just 52 seats which are 8 more than the last elections in 2014.
“I accept the verdict of the people of India. Congratulations to the winners, Mr Modi and the NDA. Thank you to the people of Wayanad for electing me as your MP. Thank you also to the people of Amethi. Thank you Congress workers & leaders for your hard work in this campaign.”
Priyanka Gandhi, Congress general secretary also wished the PM and BJP along with his brother, saying:
“We accept people’s verdict and congratulate PM Modi and BJP workers.”
Congress won a fair share in south India but lost huge grounds on their home turf.
BSP chief Mayawati shared her views too. The BSP and Akhilesh Yadav- led Samajwadi alliance failed to dampen the BJP effect in Uttar Pradesh.
“Today’s result is against the expectations and sentiments of people. Anyway, when all the institutions of the country start bending their knees before the government, the public has to take a stand.”
RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav too tweeted in Hindi:
“Respecting the people’s mandate, I congratulate Narendra Modi Ji. We hope that the Prime Minister will pay his attention to employment, agriculture, growth and the economy in this term to fulfil people’s hopes.”
BJP has won the Lok Sabha elections for the second term with a huge majority, showing that they have still not lost their grounds in contrast to the views pouring in overtime the BJP maybe losing its ground across the country. NDA will again form the next government with a majority of 349 seats
