BJP chief Amit Shah made fun at Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday over the latter’s absence in the country on the day of North-east election results. Shah told on a lighter note, “I received a message on WhatsApp that elections are being held in Italy.”
Shah said that the victory of the party especially in Tripura is the result of people’s faith and affection towards the Narendra Modi government. Shah also expressed his confidence in getting hold of states like West Bengal, Odisha and Karnataka in the near future. He said,”It is a day of joy for me and crores of BJP workers. The victory of the BJP is important in many ways….It is an endorsement of the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the people of the Northeast”.
It must be noted that the BJP has won the elections in the three north-east states whereas the Congress has lost its hold in the north-eastern part of the country.
