The Prime Minister also said in all the five states that went to the polls, the BJP workers worked tirelessly among the people. “They spoke about our good governance agenda and highlighted our pro-people efforts. I salute each and every party karyakarta for their exceptional efforts," the Prime Minister said.

PM Modi said people of UP, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur have showered BJP with great affection. “My gratitude to the people of these states. Our party cherishes these blessings and will keep working for the development of these states," he added.

‘I Love You Punjab’: Arvind Kejriwal

As Punjab gifted a resounding win for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the party's national convenor and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal returned the favour with an "I love You." “Punjab waalo tussi kamaal kar ditta', we all love you, Punjab. The results are a massive 'inquilaab', big seats have shaken up," said Arvind Kejriwal.

Kejriwal also said MLAs should not get overconfident of the mandate and work for the welfare of the people. "Such a big mandate scares us too, we won't break people's faith, Kejriwal added.

If AAP wins Punjab, it will be the party's maiden victory in the state and a vast improvement from its performance in the 2017 elections when it had finished second behind Congress.
