PM Modi attends Rajya Sabha proceedings, first time after election results

After its stellar poll show in Uttar Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party will strive to rid the state of its "Bimaru" tag as development is the way forward in Indian politics now, party president Amit Shah said on Friday.

The BJP had a landslide victory in UP this month when they secured 312 seats in the 2017 assembly polls.

"Uttar Pradesh will soon be on the map of developed states of the country".

"I will never take up a job to advise Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi". Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, when asked about the possibility of an early election in the aftermath of the Uttar Pradesh poll results, said the party had a five-year mandate in Gujarat and the government will complete its full term, adding that the election will be held in December.

His government is not looking (at issues facing the country) with "tunnel vision" but with "total vision", said the Prime Minister.

"In politics, we work with a mission in mind".

The Governor also congratulated the Prime Minister for the recent magnificent victory in Assembly elections.

"The process of candidate selection is on and tomorrow, we have called 1,540 aspirants who have filled up forms seeking nomination", said Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi.

He ridiculed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati for their charge that electronic voting machines were tampered with in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.

"The days of politics based on caste, dynastic rule and appeasement are over. They have given their mandate for development-based politics".

The BJP leader supported the prime minister's suggestion that all elections - from panchayat to the Lok Sabha level - be held simultaneously.

You will be surprised to know there were around 1500 projects that were mentioned in the parliament during previous budgets and those projects are yet to take off, PM said. "It has ended. Our alliance has been there for a long time and will continue". "The announcement is likely to be made after the (newly-elected) BJP MLAs meet in Lucknow", said an informed source to a news agency.
