Gandhinagar, May 12: Following the completion of polling for the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Monday took to twitter to congratulate the country for voting in good numbers.
“India has voted! Congratulations to the people of India on the successful completion of 2014 Lok Sabha elections. The biggest joy of 2014 Elections has been the increased turnout. Braving the scorching heat and the rain people turned out in large numbers,” Modi tweeted.
Lauding the efforts of the Election Commission, Modi further tweeted, “I congratulate the EC and the entire election and security staff for their continuous efforts during the entire Election.”
He also took a jibe at the Congress party and said, “Usually ruling Party sets agenda of the election but in this campaign ruling party was neither proactive nor responsive, it remained reactive. The NDA remained firmly focused on the agenda of development and good governance and ensured this became focal points of the entire campaign.”
“Wherever I went it was a delight to interact with local people. Social media also helped me understand their sentiments. Due to social media, lies and false promises of several leaders could not go beyond the podiums of their rallies! More power to social media,” he further tweeted.
“Today once again India has won. The power of the ballot has won and spirit of democracy has emerged supreme,” he tweeted. (ANI)
