NEW DELHI -- The BJP will form governments in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur and the new Chief Ministers will be decided on 13 March, party President Amit Shah announced on Saturday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also address Bharatiya Janata Party leaders at the party headquarters here on Sunday evening, Shah told the media.

"We will welcome Modiji tomorrow at 6 p.m. After that the BJP Parliamentary Board will meet. At that meeting, we will decide who will lead the government in the four states," Shah said.

"Even the opposition will have to accept Narendra Modi, who has emerged as the most popular leader post independence," he added.

He said the results will end the politics of "caste, dynasty politics and appeasement".

"This victory will change the course of Indian politics in the coming days. It will end the politics of casteism, parivaarvaad and appeasement," the Bharatiya Janata Party leader told the media here.

"Voters of Uttar Pradesh have rejected the politcs of casteism, of family one-upmanship and appeasement. They have voted for performance-based politics and governance," Shah added.

He said he was glad that people gave such a massive mandate to the BJP to the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi after independence. "The historic mandate given to the BJP will give a new direction to Indian politics," he said.
