The RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Sunday that the BJP’s victory in the 2014 general elections is not a victory of an individual or a party. He emphasised that the victory to BJP is a result of the change that the common man wanted.
“Some people say the success was due to the party. Others say it was because of some individuals. This change was not due to some individual, party or organization. The common man wanted change,” Mr Bhagwat said at an event in Bhuvaneswar.
“The same individuals and the party existed earlier also. Why were they not voted to power? It is the people who wanted change and brought the party to power,” Bhagwat asserted.
The statement of RSS Chief came a day after BJP’s National Council meet in Delhi, where PM Modi said, “”Rajnath singh was the captain of the team, under his captainship, party workers achieved the victory and man of the match is Amitbhai Shah.”
The Congress took this issue to a new level of discussion when its leader and former minister Manish Tiwari tweeted, “Paradox- schisms between the RSS/ BJP already manifesting? PM attributes election results to one man while Mohan ji Bhagwat credits people”.
