`Vote for BJP not Modi wave`, strange! says Arun Jaitley
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley said on Tuesday that the argument that vote in favour of the BJP did not imply a Narendra Modi wave was strange.
The BJP leader tweeted on micro-blogging site Twitter: "Strange argument - a vote for BJP is not a Modi wave."
He also tweeted: "The Congress party’s vote share in Delhi is 25% - lowest ever in history."
The BJP won majority in the states of Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh in the recently concluded Assembly elections. It also emerged as the single largest party in Delhi though it failed to get a majority there.
However, in the fifth state that went to the polls, Mizoram, the Congress got absolute majority.
Many BJP leaders, while saying that the mood in the country was anti-Congress, also gave a certain amount of credit to its PM candidate for 2014 polls, Narendra Modi, and his growing popularity.
However, many in the Opposition, including Congress leaders, refused to acknowledge it as a Modi wave.
Meanwhile, JD(U) leader and Bihar CM, Nitish Kumar said that BJP`s success basically meant that the people had voted against the Congress and dismissed the view that there was a strong sentiment in favour of the Gujarat CM.
