New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP national president Amit Shah Friday called on party veterans LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi following NDA's return to power at the Centre with a decisive mandate.The saffron party emerged victorious in the Lok Sabha election results with a massive vote share of around 48% as per latest trends.

"Called on respected Advani Ji. The BJP's successes today are possible because greats like him spent decades building the party and providing a fresh ideological narrative to the people," Modi tweeted. He also posted a picture of the meeting. Modi and Shah later met Joshi.

After meeting Joshi, Modi tweeted, "Dr Murli Manohar Joshi is a scholar and intellectual par excellence. His contribution towards improving Indian education is remarkable. He has always worked to strengthen the BJP and mentor several Karyakartas, including me. Met him this morning and sought his blessings."
