TIL Desk/National/New Delhi/ With the BJP staking claim to form government in Karnataka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asserted that his party will not allow the state’s development journey to be trampled upon, terming the assembly poll results an “unparalleled and unprecedented win”.
The BJP has emerged as the single largest party but fallen short of a majority in the state assembly, and its rivals- the Congress and the JD(S)- have joined hands also to stake claim to form the new government. “I want to assure the people of Karnataka that the BJP will not allow the state’s development journey to be trampled upon. It will not lag behind for ensuring the state a bright future,” he said in an address to party leaders and workers at its headquarters.
Attacking those for spreading “lies” that the BJP is a party of north India despite it forming governments in non-Hindi speaking states like Gujarat, Maharashtra and Assam among other states, Modi said people of Karnataka have given a befitting reply to those with such a “distorted” mindset.”This is an unparalleled and unprecedented win,” he said.
