Modi, Shah meet Advani, Joshi: Past blesses present for future

This is our tradition; we take good wishes from the elderly to work for the future, Joshi said after PM Modi and BJP president Shah sought blessings from Advani and him


New Delhi: Prime Minister and BJP president met with senior party leader LK Advani on Friday after securing a clear majority for the NDA in the Lok Sabha election of 2019.

The prime minister posted a picture of the meeting on Twitter and wrote: “Called on respected Advani Ji. The BJP’s successes today are possible because greats like him spent decades building the party and providing a fresh ideological narrative to the people.”

Joshi: We sowed the seed, now reap fruits for country

After meeting the Prime Minister, Murli Manohar Joshi told the media, “This is the tradition of our party. We take good wishes from the elderly to work with the strength in the future. Following this tradition, the prime minister and the party president came here. Both of them are charismatic figures. We had planted the seed of the party. Now the responsibility lies on these two leaders to benefit the country with the fruit.”

When asked by the media why Modi stayed at his place barely for 15 minutes, Joshi said that the Prime Minister had been with him for months.

“One thing was clear that the country needed a strong government. As a party, the BJP, and as Prime Minister Modi had no alternative. The opposition did not have anything to face the challenge. I just hope that the party will do its best and deliver results to the people,” Joshi said.

Sources say Narendra Modi will give his vote of thanks to his parliamentary constituency of Varanasi on 28 May. After this, the swearing-in ceremony is likely to be held on the 30th.

On 23 May, the BJP-led NDA won 352 seats, leaving the Congress-led UPA with 96 and others with 94 seats. The BJP won 303 seats on its own.

Modi recalled at the BJP headquarters on Thursday that “there was a time when we were two”, referring to the pre-Ram Janmabhoomi movement when the BJP had just two MPs in Parliament. “We have come to power again, but we will not leave our ideals,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.
