NEW DELHI -- Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah congratulated the party's state chief Manoj Tiwari for their performance in the municipal polls.
"This is a vote in favour of Modiji's three years in power," he said. "The people of Delhi have showed that negative kind of politics will not win and only positive politics will win."
He thanked the people of Delhi for their support and congratulated party workers even as it became clear that BJP would sweep the elections, beating rival Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). He claimed that the people of Delhi had voted for BJP over AAP's "negative politics".
"Our victory is thanks to Prime Minister Modi's welfare schemes and development-focussed initiatives," he said. "The people of Delhi chose this leadership over politics of slander and over those who give excuses."
Shah said that the Delhi municipal poll win comes after the party won convincingly in the Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur assembly polls.
