The supporters raised slogans of “Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Lekhi”, “Meenakshi Lekhi Zindabad”, and burnt crackers in large numbers. With hundreds of garlands Meenakshi shines brightly with the winner tag amongst her supporters.
While talking to Ten News she said,
“The negative politics practised by negative-minded leaders of Delhi has been rejected by the people and they are determined to form a strong government after Assembly elections. People have given their mandate to the BJP because it is a party of development and betterment”.
She attributed BJP’s victory in Delhi to the works of the Modi government, and said, “Our leader Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah were an inspiration to every citizen of this country and specially to the BJP party members. PM Modi showed the world that no matter how many enemies you have, if you work with honesty and for welfare no one can beat you”.
“I thank the people of Delhi, for choosing BJP and making us win with huge numbers”.
The victory margins were massive this time. BJP’s West Delhi candidate Parvesh Singh Verma won by a margin 5,78,486 votes, breaking his own victory margin record of 2014.
