BJP chief Amit Shah on Monday said the poll outcome of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh in favour of the Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is a victory of performance and development against political dynasty and casteism.
Addressing a press conference, the BJP chief said the BJP will form government in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, and rejected suggestions that there was a "close fight" with the Congress in Modi's home state. The BJP president said having a eight percent victory margin over the rival cannot be taken as 'kante ki takkar' (close fight).
