“Today is a very unique day for us, a celebration of a victory, a celebration of our wish fulfilled,” said Dr. Parikh in his speech. He said all the credit for winning in the four states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa, went to PM Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, and all the BJP workers who worked day and night to make the historic win in Uttar Pradesh a second time. “It never happens. And second time also with a majority. That shows that people love what BJP has done in all the four states,” Dr. Parikh said.
