A day after the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) big win in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said a "new India" is emerging which stands for development.
"A new India is emerging, which is being powered by the strength & skills of 125 crore Indians. This India stands for development (sic)," PM Modi tweeted.
"When we mark 75 years of freedom in 2022, we should have made an India that will make Gandhi Ji, Sardar Patel & Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar proud," he added.
He further encouraged people to take a pledge and express their commitment on the Narendra Modi Mobile App towards building a new India.
The tweets came a day after the BJP spectacular win in Uttar Pradesh that decimated the Samajwadi Party (SP) - Congress alliance and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). The party won 312 of the state's 403 seats and its allies bagging 13 seats, taking the overall grand total of the pary to 325.
The Akhilesh Yadav-led SP-Congress alliance bagged just 56 seats and the BSP trailed behind with 19 seats.
The UP election results, whose campaign was led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, are being seen as a referendum for his notes ban last year.
The BJP also scored a massive victory in Uttarakhand, winning 56 of the 70-member assembly in the state, and the Congress bagging just 11 seats. It also emerged as the second-largest party in both Manipur and Goa, with party chief Amit Shah declaring that the BJP will attempt to form government in both states.(With PTI Inputs)
