“My gratitude to the people of Sikandra for once again supporting BJP. Our commitment to serving India’s villages and taking them to new heights of progress is unwavering,” Modi tweeted.

In another tweet, he thanked voters of Likabali and Pakke Kesang in Arunachal Pradesh for reposing their faith in the BJP. “We derive immense strength from this affection and remain committed to transforming the Northeast,” he said. On the bypoll results of Sabang, West Bengal, Modi said the BJP will leave no stone unturned in serving West Bengal. the BJP wrested both Pakke-Kessang and Likabali Assembly seats from the Congress in the by-elections in Arunachal Pradesh. The party boasted its strength to 49 in the 60 member assembly.
