New Delhi: The BJP juggernaut will not stop with UP and Uttarakhand, the party president Amit Shah said on Sunday evening.
Speaking to a huge audience of party workers and supporters at the BJP national headquarters, Shah said BJP's victory will reach all parts of the country.
"This victory march will now reach Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka and Gujarat," Shah said to his supporters.
In a brief speech before Narendra Modi took over the stage, Shah said that their victory in the elections for the five states was bigger than "our victory in 2014 Lok Sabha polls."
Setting his sights on the next Lok Sabha polls Shah said that his party would get a bigger mandate in 2019.
Many have drawn parallels of BJP's performance in last Lok Sabha elections with the recent polls in five states. Shah himself emphasised more than once in his speech.
He recounted the schemes launched by Modi like demonetisaion, Jan Dhan accounts and Ujjwala cylinder scheme.
"I have seen how these schemes connected with the common person. I saw an old man in tatters because of what the previous governments had done. He revered Modi. Everyone I met revered Modi. The sort of belief that you've put in us, we will definitely fulfil those expectations."
