New Delhi, Dec 3, 2023: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday won three of four states in key regional polls, in a big boost for Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of general elections in six months.
The BJP won heartland states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. Although Congress won Telangana, its second victory in the south this year, Sunday’s outcome is seen as a setback to the party and its leader Rahul Gandhi as it was wiped out of the politically critical heartland.
Taking to X, the prime minister began with a tribute to voters, calling them the ’Janta Janardan’. PM Modi thanked the voters for their support and assured them that the BJP would work "tirelessly" for their welfare.
"We bow to the Janta Janardan. The results in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan indicate that the people of India are firmly with politics of good governance and development, which the @BJP4India stands for. I thank the people of these states for their unwavering support and assure them that we will keep working tirelessly for their well-being," he wrote on X.
