New Delhi, Oct 24: As the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance is set to retain power in Maharashtra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the people of the state have blessed the NDA with immense affection.
He said the NDA is "humbled" to have got the people's support yet again.
"Our work towards Maharashtra's progress continues! I salute each and every karyakarta (worker) of the BJP, Shiv Sena and our entire NDA family for their hardwork," Modi tweeted.
Referring to Haryana, which seems to be headed for a hung assembly, he thanked the people of the state for "blessing" the BJP.
"We will continue to work with the same zeal and dedication for the state's progress. I laud the efforts of hardworking @BJP4Haryana karyakartas who toiled extensively and went among the people to elaborate on our development agenda," the Prime Minister tweeted.
Notwithstanding reduced number of seats in the Assembly elections of Haryana and Maharashtra, Modi lauded Chief Ministers Manohar Lal Khattar and Devendra Fadnavis and said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would continue to work with the same zeal.
"It was only after 50 years a Chief Minister (Devendra Fadnavis) could complete his full 5-year tenure in Maharashtra," Modi said addressing party supporters at the BJP headquarters.
Hailing the BJP's performance and efforts of Khattar in Haryana, Modi said for five years it had a majority of only two seats and even now it had returned as the largest party in the Assembly.
"Haryana's victory is unique. These days it's rare for the government to get re-elected after completing 5 years. Even its return as the largest party is an achievement," he said.
