BJP-led NDA poised for massive victory in LS polls : PM Modi

Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh), May 14 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday exuded confidence that Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance was poised for a massive victory in the ongoing Lok Sabha election.

Addressing BJP workers at a conference here, the PM also expressed his gratitude to the party workers for their dedication and urged them to maintain their enthusiasm till June 1. “We are well aware that earning the trust of the people is not a simple feat. It requires immense effort, even to secure victory in a panchayat election,” he said.

Modi stressed the need for constant dedication to serve the people round the clock, highlighting that such devotion earns affection and blessings from the public. He called upon the workers to ensure that the love and enthusiasm of the people demonstrated during roadshows also extended to polling booths.

The Prime Minister underscored the importance of collective efforts in ensuring victory of candidates. “If you permit me, I would like to convey something to you all – a simple yet profound ‘thank you’. I held roadshows in Varanasi in 2014 and 2019 also, but Monday’s roadshow was historic that broke all records,” he said.

Modi said, “The transformative developments in Kashi over the past decade are a result of the diligent efforts of the workers for such progress.”

Stressing on the importance of winning every polling booth, the PM said, “My friends, while it’s true that Modi will succeed because of your support, I must secure victory in every booth. Regardless of the effort we put into processions, slogans, and roadshows, these elements do not impact the outcome at the booth.”

He said, “What truly matters is the voter turnout; it reflects our representation in Kashi. Thus, our resolution should be directed towards booth victory. How do we achieve this? By transforming voting into a celebration of democracy. With 14 days left, let’s turn each polling booth into a festivity. Engage all local societies and neighbourhoods, adorn the booths with Rangoli and other festivities.”

While encouraging the workers at the conference, Modi said, “On the voting day, keep a keen eye on who has yet to cast their vote and make it your mission to escort them to the booth. To illustrate, let’s say there are ten workers in your booth. Each worker should endeavour to bring at least 30 voters, leading them to the polling station in a lively procession accompanied by musical instruments.”

He urged workers to surpass the previous record of votes garnered at the booth. He drew inspiration from Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee’s sacrifices for the abolition of Article 370, emphasising the potential for a brighter future.

The PM said, “The substantial voter turnout in Jammu, Kashmir, and Srinagar is not just a milestone but a testament to our collective strength and promise for a better India.”

He attributed this achievement to a decade of tireless efforts. “My issue is not whether someone from my party will win or not, but in reinforcing democracy. “If Srinagar can do it, why can’t Kashi?,” Modi said.
