Modi hails BJP's Himachal Pradesh victory

December 28, 2007 22:59 IST

Cheering the Bharatiya Janata Party's win in Himachal Pradesh assembly polls on Friday, Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi [Images] said that the result in the hill state proves that people support a party which gives good governance.

"People have re-elected the BJP government in Gujarat after looking at its development-oriented work, while they have rejected the Congress government in Himachal which failed to give good governance," Modi said in a statement.

"The results of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh gives clear signals of change in the present political situation in the country. The two wins of BJP will reverse the fortune of Congress in the coming days," Modi said.

"This has also proved that the people are not ready to accept Congress's politics of appeasement of particular section of society. The Congress has failed to control inflation, corruption and terrorism," he added.
