Modi finally addressed the Nation through Vadodara today, this is what he said…
“Nation has been waiting for me to speak, I had decided to speak at Baroda, because they have first right on me, How is today, you tell me…! The Good days have finally arrived, how nice, This is a journey from difficulties to relaxation, I congratulate you, I thank you, these elections, as a contestant, I could give Baroda only fifty minutes, yet you gave me five lakh seventy thousand votes, I salute Baroda’s public, the love you gave me, every worker became a Narendra Modi and worked for me,
I was not allowed to speak in Banaras, despite my silence, Banaras gave their approval to me unconditionally, A victory margin of 5 lakh 70 thousands in a general election is a record now, I thank Vadodara public for this, 60% voters from Gujarat have voted for BJP, this is also a record.
After independence, there have been no single party non-Congress governments till today, this is also a record. This victory will see a first government led by persons born after the Independence. Let me assure the citizen of the Country that I did not get the fortune to die for the Country’s independence, neither to fight against the British for the Independence, but I will live for the better governed India, I declare today. This is the time for us to Live for the Country. I ask all the 125 crore public to live for the Country, then the Country will be ahead by 125 crore steps, this will be our future, You have faith in me, but I trust you, to achieve all the dreams of the public,
You gave NDA 300 plus seats, but I announce that Government is of the entire people, of the 125 crore people, not of selected few, welfare of these 125 crore will be the priority of the government, the verdict of the public tells us to take India ahead, I think the country has full faith in my ability to work hard for the Country, I am Worker No.1, the Country will not get a better servant than me in the next 60 months, I will be an example slave, no body has any doubt over this, including my detractors, In four terms as CM I never took a holiday, my future will also be dedicated to the public of this Country, I assure you that my target is to show to the entire country that if all work together, all will prosper, this is our spirit, our DNA.
I have got everything needed to run the government, but I will still need your support and cooperation to run the Country, we have to be united to do this, I thank all who worked for this result, hope for similar help in future too, I congratulate all victors, contestants of all parties, my victory is the result of the love you gave me, I assure you that I will convert all the opposition to be my admirers too, I appreciate the opposition for inspiring me all along.
For your support, I will ensure all around development of this city, this is my word, I thank you again for giving me a record majority, You have all said, even small children “Äb Ki baar, Modi Sarkar,” I am sure a generation will follow this, I thank you all again,” said Modi at Vadodara, Gujarat in his first speech after his landslide victory in the election.
