Prime minister Narendra Modi has thanked voters of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and credit good governance for his party’s victories in the state assemblies.

“I bow to the people of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh for their affection and trust in BJP. I assure them that we will leave no stone unturned in furthering the development journey of these states and serve the people tirelessly,” he wrote in a tweet.

In another tweet, he said,

“Election results in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh indicate a strong support for politics of good governance and development. I salute the hardworking BJP Karyakartas in these states for their hardwork which has led to these impressive victories.”

On the closely contested polls in Gujarat, he said, “Jeeta Vikas, Jeeta Gujarat” – a play on the BJP slogan, “Jeetega Vikas, Jeetegaa Gujarat”.

"Our country has entered a new age. We have been in power since 1990 in Gujarat. India has now become free from dynastic politics and caste politics. Also, the politics of appeasement is now over. Congress leaders lost because they moved away from issue based politics," said Amit Shah.

He added that this was politics of performance.
