Assembly elections: We’ll win with an overwhelming majority, says Modi

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the BJP would win the Assembly elections with an overwhelming majority.

“BJP is always involved in serving people. When in power, we work with the mantra of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’. I can see a wave for the BJP in all states. People in five states will allow us the opportunity to serve them,” PM Modi said during an interview with ANI on the eve of the Assembly elections 2022.

A total of 58 Assembly constituencies across 11 districts in western Uttar Pradesh went to the polls on February 10.

Talking about the political dynamics in UP, the PM said, “We saw the game of two boys earlier. They had such arrogance that they used words like ‘Gujarat ke do gadhe’. UP taught them a lesson. Another time there, again there were two boys and a ‘bua ji’. Still, it didn’t work out for them,” he said.

PM Modi added, “Wherever the BJP has been allowed to work with stability, there you will find an atmosphere of pro-incumbency and not anti-incumbency. BJP always emerges into elections with pro-incumbency.”

He also appealed to voters to vote in the first phase of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls. Polling is underway in 58 Assembly constituencies of Uttar Pradesh in the first phase.

In a tweet, the PM said, “Today is the first phase of voting in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections. I request all the voters to participate enthusiastically in this holy festival of democracy following the Covid norms. Remember – Vote first, breakfast later.”

Counting of votes will be held on March 10. In the first phase, polling is scheduled in 58 of the 403 member Uttar Pradesh Assembly.

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath released a video message in the wee hours of the morning on February 10 just as the first phase of polling in the state’s Assembly election was about to begin.

In his six-minute-long video addressed to his ‘voting brothers and sisters’ on Twitter, he repeatedly stated that he was not “here to ask for your votes”, interspaced with a list of his government’s achievements.

“It’s time for a big decision. In the last five years, the BJP’s double engine government has done everything with commitment and fulfilled its promises keeping your trust in mind. A lot has happened in five years 24 hour electricity has reached all houses in all villages for the first time, bathrooms have been made for cleanliness as well as the dignity of women, sturdy homes have been built, piped water has reached homes, expressways have been built,” CM Yogi Adityanath said.
