Union Home Minister Amit Shah said the result of the recently-concluded Gujarat Assembly elections is important not just for the state but for the entire country as it has sent a message that Narendra Modi will be re-elected as the prime minister in 2024.
“This (Gujarat Assembly election) result is important not for Gujarat alone. There will be (Lok Sabha) elections in 2024, and the entire country is prepared to once more make Narendra Modi the prime minister,” Shah said at a function in Gandhinagar.
“The people of Gujarat have worked to end the poison of casteism and slapped those making empty, false and alluring promises. The people of Gujarat have responded to those who tried to defame Gujarat and Narendra Modi,” he said.
While inaugurating the Scout Guide Resident Bhavan of Gujarat State Bharat Scout and Guide at its training centre in Ahmedabad, he said, “Including me, who was born after the Independence, we did not get an opportunity to die for the country, except those in the defence and paramilitary forces. But no one can stop us from living for the country. We did not get a chance to die for the country as we were born after independence but no one can stop us to live for the country and make it greatest in the world. More than 33 lakh activists of scout and guide should take this oath and take pride in what we have achieved.”
Earlier, in a veiled reference to the opposition Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Shah said the people of Gujarat, by helping the BJP retain power with a record number of seats in the state, responded to those who tried to defame the state and Prime Minister Modi.
