“BJP candidates have won in two Lok Sabha seats of Banaskantha and Porbandar and three Assembly seats of Limbadi, Morva Hadaf and Jetpur,” said state election official.
The byelections have in turn boosted the strength of Narendra Modi in the race for prime ministership in BJP. Modi termed the victory as a sign that general public is not satisfied with the Congress-led UPA at the Centre. He said the bypolls are a hidden message to the Congress saying it is time for them to go home. Modi gave the remarks during chief ministers’ conference in New Delhi.
“Some irresponsible leaders who are dreaming up a mirage of becoming prime minister of India seem to have forgotten the support enjoyed by Modi. In the present situation, Narendra Modi appears as a man who is committed to development and one who can prevent corruption,” Baba Ramdev, the biggest supporter of Modi said.
