New Delhi, Oct 24: Notwithstanding minor reverses in Maharashtra and Haryana polls, the ruling BJP on Thursday termed the outcome of the polls as 'victory' for the party.
"In Modi-2, the first two elections have gone in favour of the BJP," party chief Amit Shah said addressing party workers at the BJP headquarters here.
Mr Shah pointed out that prior to 2014, the BJP never had Chief Ministers in these two states.
But now in these two states, the saffron party ruled for five years and in both the states, the party and party-led alliance governments have returned to power yet again, he said.
"Dono jagah BJP ki jeet hui hae (In both the states, we have won)," he said adding Prime Minister Narendra Modi deserves credit for the party victory.
On his arrival at the party headquarters, a beaming Prime Minister Modi signaled 'V' with his fingers and waved enthusiastically towards the party workers.
He also said the victories reflect the success of two Chief Ministers Manohar Lal Khattar and Devendra Fadnavis. (UNI)
