We are now ruling 19 states, even Indira Gandhi had 18 states: Emotional PM Modi at party meet

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday became emotional while recalling what he reportedly said were the struggle and contribution of BJP leaders in building the party in Gujarat where the saffron party notched up its sixth consecutive assembly win. Addressing the BJP parliamentary party, Modi was seen holding back his tears at least three times as he named Jana Sangh and BJP leaders, reported PTI. PM Modi said that it was a big achievement for the BJP to win power in the state for a sixth term with more vote share, and asked party leaders not to be affected by the opposition’s “disinformation campaign.” “This is a big victory; we are now ruling 19 states. Even Indira Gandhi, when she was in power, was in 18 states,” he was quoted by NDTV. The Congress has projected Gujarat results, where it won its biggest tally since 1985 polls by winning 77 seats while the BJP with 99 seats got its lowest since 1990, as a “moral victory” for itself, a claim termed as a “laughable exercise” by BJP chief Amit Shah at today’s meeting.
