bjp: 2014-type BJP wave likely in Uttarakhand, Goa and UP: Modi | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Building on his optimistic projection, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said he is seeing a wave like 2014 in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa.
In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, defying all projections, BJP had won over 70 seats in UP. “We are getting an amazing response in UP. It is very good. I find a 2014-type wave in favour of our party in Goa, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. I am yet to visit Punjab and Manipur, but all the ground reports that I am getting are positive,” Modi said in an interview to a Hindi news channel.
Earlier this week, the PM had told ANI that BJP will get a majority in five states. “We are getting massive support from the people, but others who have a pre-determined, political agenda and who have their vested interests in mind are against us. It is natural that such people are angry with us. But overall, the people are in favour of BJP,” he said on Saturday.
Modi, who was in Uttarakhand, said his party wanted to focus on improving connectivity in the state and sought to make the next decade “the decade of Uttarakhand”.
Asked about opposition leaders criticising him and his government, Modi said: “In public life, criticism is natural. We do not want to get entangled with what others say. I never waste time on who is saying what. In both houses of Parliament, I tried to take the debate to a higher level. My speeches were based on facts.” TNN
