People have rejected dynastic rule: BJP

Tags: Politics
Buoyed by the party's strong showing in the general elections, BJP today said the people of the country have rejected 'dynastic' rule while rewarding hard work.

"....The politics of inheritance, the politics of dynasty and the politics of entitlement is being punished by the people of India and the politics of hard work, politics of initiative, the politics of achievement and accomplishment is being rewarded and that's what they saw in the persona of Narendra Modi," BJP national spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

He said that going by the trends, BJP may get majority on its own in Lok Sabha.

As per the latest trends, BJP-led NDA appears to be heading for a victory with the saffron party leading in 273 seats while its allies were ahead in over 50 seats.

"If the performance in Gujarat, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh goes as a guide, let me assure that Modi's government is the government of entire country," Prasad said.

Even Muslims have voted for the party, he said.
