GUWAHATI: In the wake of the BJP’s overwhelming performance in the Lok Sabha election in the state, Assam Chief Minister, Sarbananda Sonowal on Thursday heaped praises on his senior minister and party leader Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma’s hardwork and untiring efforts.

Talking to the media on Thursday afternoon, Sonowal stated that the unprecedented performance of the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls reflected that the people have approved Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s sincere and all-encompassing development agenda that was pursued by the BJP-led NDA government during the last five years.

He said, “People have stamped Modiji’s transparent and dynamic style of governance aimed at facilitating uniform development of all the states and regions of the country and dismissed the misinformation campaign of the opposition.”

“The people have reposed confidence on Modiji for ensuring the national security, peace all over the country and rapid development. The Northeast has immensely benefited during the last five years of NDA government which has taken massive development programmes for all the states in the region,” Sonowal said.

“The people of the country love Modiji and party more than we what we have perceived. That is why the poll victory has exceeded even our own expectation,” he said
