Speaking after being elected as the leader of BJP Parliamentary Party, he described Parliament as the “temple of democracy” for which he has immense respect.
Hailing India’s democracy, Modi said his elevation to the high post was a reflection of how a common man could aspire and achieve big goals. “A new hope has arisen in the common man. This is the biggest significance of this election results. At the end of the day for whom is the government? It is for the poor,” he said.
He credited party seniors and past generations for the spectacular victory and said Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s presence would have added more joy to the event.
“Had Atal Bihari Vajpayee been well, his presence would have been like ‘sone par suhaga’ (icing on the cake),” he said.
