Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday expressed his gratitude to voters and exuded confidence that the people of India have voted in record numbers to re-elect the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government.
Soon after the exit Polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to social media on Saturday and thanked all the citizens who exercised their franchise.
“India has voted! A heartfelt thank you to all those who exercised their franchise. Their active participation is the cornerstone of our democracy. Their commitment and dedication ensures that the democratic spirit thrives in our nation. I would also like to specially appreciate India’s Nari Shakti and Yuva Shakti. Their strong presence at the polls is a very encouraging sign,” PM Modi wrote on X.
PM Modi commended the efforts of the Election Commission for exemplary efforts in ensuring a smooth and fair electoral process.
“I would like to commend the @ECISVEEP for their exemplary efforts in ensuring a smooth and fair electoral process. Their dedication and meticulous planning have been crucial in upholding the integrity of our democracy, allowing citizens across the nation to vote with confidence and security. Our electoral process is something every believer in democratic values takes inspiration from,” he said.
He further expressed gratitude to the outstanding security forces for their unwavering vigilance during the entire elections.
“Their efforts have ensured a safe and secure environment, enabling people to take part in the polling process with ease. Their service to the nation is deeply appreciated by each one of us,” PM Modi posted on X.
The Prime Minister further said that every scheme of the party has reached the intended beneficiaries without any bias or leakage.
“I can say with confidence that the people of India have voted in record numbers to reelect the NDA government. They have seen our track record and the manner in which our work has brought about a qualitative change in the lives of the poor, marginalized and downtrodden. At the same time, they have seen how the reforms in India have propelled India to being the fifth-largest global economy. Every scheme of ours has reached the intended beneficiaries without any bias or leakage,” he said.
The Prime Minister also criticized the INDIA bloc and said that the alliance failed to strike a chord with the voters.
“The opportunistic INDI Alliance failed to strike a chord with the voters. They are casteist, communal and corrupt. This alliance, aimed to protect a handful of dynasties, failed to present a futuristic vision for the nation. Through the campaign, they only enhanced their expertise on one thing- Modi bashing. Such regressive politics has been rejected by the people,” the PM said.
He further applauded NDA Karyakarta and said that the party Karyakartas are their “greatest strength”.
“I would like to applaud each and every NDA Karyakarta. Across the length and breadth of India, often braving intense heat. I compliment them for meticulously explaining our development agenda to the people and motivating them to come out and vote. Our Karyakartas are our greatest strength,” he said.
