Parties that call themselves neutral, we must try and understand where they stand and what games they play and how they change colours. They have lost deposits in Uttarakhand and Himachal but no one is discussing that.”

PM Modi’s comments come on a day when AAP won five seats in the Gujarat Assembly Elections and secured 13 per cent  of the vote share, as per AAP making it a national party. It also comes a day after the AAP registered a decisive victory in civic polls in the. national capital ending BJP’s 15 years of uninterrupted reign.

It was not just AAP that came in for criticism. PM Modi came down heavily on Congress and said the reason BJP keeps winning elections and the youth of the nation stands with the saffron party is because they are fed up with casteist and nepotistic politics. “The election results in the past few years are reflective of the country’s youth’s frustration with nepotism and casteist politics. Youth wants vision,” he said.

It says a lot. It shows youth saw our work, tested our work and trusted us. It shows that youth never fall into the trap of jativad aur  parivarbaad,” Prime minister stated.

Emphasising BJP’s focus on tribal empowerment the Prime Minister said, “BJP is the only party that commemorates the life of tribal freedom fighters. We made attempts for the election of the country’s first tribal president,” he said.


On Himachal Pradesh he said, “We lost by a difference of 1 per cent votes. But Himachal Pradesh will get its due. We do not do negative politics. We fulfil all promises made to Himachal.”

“We do not run the government on the basis of which place has how many voters. We do not announce just for the sake of announcing. It is clear that the country do-not want any shortcuts” said the PM.
