"Modiji has done excellent work. We want him to be Prime Minister again and again. I voted in favour of BJP in 2018 for Tripura assembly elections. I also voted for them in the Lok Sabha polls. There is no space left for the Left," said a 34-year-old businessman Ziko Malakar.
"The country already knew before elections what would be the result on May 23. The election was never about whether Modiji will become PM or not. The election was about whether there would be a robust opposition in the parliament this time," Ram Madhav said.
The conservative prediction by Madhav is just short of a clear majority in the 543-seat parliament and is far below what other party leaders including finance minister Arun Jaitley and party president Amit Shah have publicly claimed.
BJP general secretary Ram Madhav says the polls are all about PM Modi, dismisses charge of citizenship Bill being biased, says the protests in NE have been handled, defends BJP not talking about temple in UP but the Balakot strikes, and says party is in fairly good place in the Hindi heartland
In first remarks as the party candidate, Pragya Thakur called the contest a “dharma yudh” and accused her Congress rival of equating saffron with terror. “Mei bhagwa ko samman dila ke rahungi (I will ensure saffron’s dignity is restored),” she said, adding “all conspiracies against me have failed”.
"You can’t expect the Modi government to act on the same lines as the Manmohan government. It is a different government, it has a different approach. But to describe it as muscular is wrong," Ram Madhav said.
Accusing the National Conference (NC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of double-speak, Ram Madhav said, “It is the plight of two regional parties here if they are trying to occupy the space left by separatists in the Valley.”
