PM Modi To Address BJP Workers At BJP HQ
- PM Modi visited party headquarter in Delhi on Thursday evening.
- Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP president J.P. Nadda is also present at the party headquarters.
- BJP is set to win assembly polls in four states.
New Delhi: Witnessing a splendid performance in the four states ruled by Bhartiya Janata Party, sweeping away opposition parties, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to address BJP workers at the party’s headquarters in Delhi at around 7 pm. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had won and was leading in 251 of the 403 seats in Uttar Pradesh, which it currently rules, according to the Election Commission of India. Party workers in the state staged impromptu rallies to celebrate and smeared each other in the BJP’s saffron colours.
With UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath set to achieve the maiden feat of an incumbent returning to power in the state after serving a full term, BJP’s emphatic win, if not as sweeping as in 2017, has made him all but first in a shrinking list of his party’s regional satraps, more so as a very few of them symbolise its ideological purity combined with an image of a tough administrator like him. Votes have been counted in five states – Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur – where state assembly elections were recently concluded.
Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) is poised to return to power with a comfortable majority for an unprecedented second term in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is on course to a historic victory in Punjab, according to election results and trends on Thursday. In the other two states of Manipur and Goa, which also went to polls in February-March, the BJP has emerged as the single largest party and is on course to form the government.
