PM Modi said, “It is a day of celebration of democracy. I thank the voters, especially women voters and youngsters. BJP workers had promised that Holi will begin on March 10. They fulfilled it. They worked hard to gain people’s trust. Every worker has hit a four of victory for the NDA. The vote share has increased in Goa, UP and Manipur too. For the first time, a BJP CM will be elected for the second term in UP in 37 years. The BJP has created new history in Uttarakhand too.”

“Our efforts were a little less to win over the public of Uttarakhand. We were sure that people will vote for a change, there must’ve been a shortage in our efforts, I accept it and take responsibility for the defeat,” Harish Rawat told the media later.

“The kind of leadership he has offered and the amount of development he has brought about, PM Modi carries immense respect among the public.
