Victory of Democracy: PM Modi Hails Landmark Election Win

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Tuesday, declared the results of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections as a triumph for democracy, the people, and the Indian Constitution. In his address following the decisive verdict, Modi expressed his gratitude to the citizens for reaffirming their faith in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

“We are very grateful to the people. The people of the country have reaffirmed their faith in the BJP and the NDA. Today’s victory is the victory of the world’s biggest democracy, a victory of faith in the country’s Constitution, a victory of the ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’ mantra, and a victory of 1.4 billion Indians,” Modi said while addressing party workers at the BJP headquarters.

Historic Third Term

Modi highlighted the historic nature of the victory, noting that this was the first time since 1962 that a government had won a mandate for a third consecutive term. He began his speech with ‘Jai Jagannath’, extending his gratitude to the people of Odisha for giving the BJP a clear mandate to form the state government for the first time. He emphasized that the Congress party was virtually obliterated in several states, including Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Sikkim, and Arunachal Pradesh, where the NDA achieved sweeping victories in both assembly and parliamentary elections.

A New Era in Odisha and Beyond

For the first time, the BJP will form the government in Odisha, where it also performed exceptionally well in the Lok Sabha elections. Modi mentioned the BJP’s success in Kerala and the significant performance of the NDA in Andhra Pradesh under Chandrababu Naidu and in Bihar under Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. He took a jab at the opposition INDIA block, noting, “The opposition together could not win even seats that BJP won on its own.”

Achievements of the Last Decade

In his victory speech, Modi recounted the significant achievements of his government over the past decade. “In the last 10 years, the country made a lot of important decisions. We ran the world’s biggest welfare policies. Twelve crore people got tap water connections for the first time 70 years after Independence. Four crore people got pucca houses, 800 million beneficiaries got free ration, crores got free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh, Article 370 was removed, and GST, IPC, and banking reforms were brought in,” he said.

Modi assured voters that the government remains committed to their development and prosperity. “The NDA government will work together with all state governments. We don’t have time to stop. After six decades, voters have scripted history. The NDA got a chance to serve the country for the third time,” he added.

Praising the Election Commission

Modi also praised the Election Commission of India (ECI) for their efficient conduct of the world’s largest election. He lauded the ECI’s efforts in managing nearly 1 billion voters, 11 lakh polling stations, 15 million poll workers, and 5.5 million EVMs. “I congratulate the EC for holding the world’s largest election. Everyone did their job in this intense heat. Every Indian is proud of the country’s election process and its credibility. I tell the influencers and opinion makers that in India’s democracy, this is the efficiency of the election process,” he said.

A Vision for the Future

Looking forward, Modi emphasized the need for continuous progress and collaboration with state governments to achieve the nation’s development goals. His speech underscored the significance of the electoral victory as a mandate for sustained growth and inclusivity, reflecting the aspirations of 1.4 billion Indians. The reaffirmation of faith in the BJP and NDA, he concluded, marks a new chapter in India’s democratic journey, driven by the principles of ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’—together with all, development for all.
