BJP president J P Nadda on Sunday asserted that his party’s massive win in the Tripura local body polls shows people’s trust in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies and welfare programmes and is also a reflection of their trust in the ”double engine” government’s commitment to the state’s development.
The BJP uses the expression ”double engine government” to denote it being in power at the Centre and in a state and claims that this helps in the state’s progress.
The BJP’s win in the polls is a victory of nationalist and pro-development forces, Nadda said in tweets and lauded Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and the state party leadership for the ”historic” and massive win.
People have rejected fissiparous forces and those inclined to violence and controversy besides insulting Tripura, he claimed.
