Narendra Modi said- the government runs by majority and the country by consensus

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he will try to ensure unanimity in all the decisions of the next government and also stressed that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is not an alliance of some parties to gain power, but it is a natural alliance committed to the principle of ‘Nation First’. After being elected as the leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led NDA for the third time, Modi said that in the next term his government will focus on good governance, development, quality of life and minimum interference in the lives of common citizens in the next 10 years. He said that mutual trust is at the core of this alliance and they are committed to the principle of ‘Sarva Panth Samabhava’. He claimed that the NDA knows well how to digest victory. Modi said, “If we look at the history of alliance in terms of numbers, then this is the strongest coalition government.” He said that NDA has been the most successful pre-poll alliance since its existence of about 30 years and in these nearly 30 years it has completed three terms and is about to start the fourth term. Attacking the opposition parties, the Prime Minister said, “We have never lost. Our conduct after June 4 shows that we know how to digest victory.”

The Prime Minister said he has been missing participation and quality debates in Parliament for the last 10 years and hoped he would see it this time. He said he hoped opposition leaders would work keeping national interest in mind. “They may be against us, but not against the nation,” Modi said. I hope they will come to Parliament with a sense of national interest.” After being elected leader of the NDA parliamentary party, he said, ”Attempts are being made to not accept this victory… to cast a ‘shadow of defeat’ on this victory, but all such efforts have failed… such things end very soon and this is what happened.” The meeting was attended by Telugu Desam Party’s (TDP) N Chandrababu Naidu, Janata Dal (United)’s Nitish Kumar, Shiv Sena’s Eknath Shinde, Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas)’s Chirag Paswan, Janata Dal (Secular)’s HD Kumaraswamy, Nationalist Congress Party’s Ajit Pawar, Apna Dal (S)’s Anupriya Patel, Janasena Party’s Pawan Kalyan and newly elected members of BJP and other NDA allies. Parliament has often witnessed disruptions in the past due to deep differences between the ruling coalition and opposition parties, but Modi took a conciliatory stance, saying a majority is necessary to form a government but “unanimity is very important” to run the country. “I want to assure the people of the country that you have given us the privilege of running the government by giving us a majority and now it is our responsibility to make continuous efforts to ensure consensus in taking the country forward,” Modi said.

“For me, NDA means ‘New India, Developed India, Aspirational India’,” he said, praising the key architects of the NDA, including Atal Bihari Vajpayee, George Fernandes, Bal Thackeray, Sharad Yadav and Parkash Singh Badal. Modi congratulated the victorious NDA leaders and said they should salute the lakhs of grassroots workers who worked to ensure this victory. “This is the most successful alliance in the history of our country. It has completed three successful terms and is now entering its fourth. The NDA is not a group of parties that have come together to gain power, it is committed to the principle of ‘Nation First’,” he said. The Prime Minister said there are 10 states in the country where the tribal group is dominant and decisive in number and seven of these states have NDA governments. Modi said the parties of the ‘Indi alliance’ have already started saying that they have come together only for the Lok Sabha elections. He said such an attitude reflects their character, their hunger for power. Modi said, “Our 10 years were just a ‘trailer’. We will work very hard and fast for the development of our country. People know that we will do it.” The Prime Minister said that he was missing parliamentary debates and hoped that opposition MPs would also contribute to nation building when they come to Parliament.

Taking a dig at the Congress, he said the opposition party could not even touch the 100-seat mark and its total number of seats in the last three Lok Sabha elections was less than the BJP’s in this election. He said, “We are happy to know that for the first time one of our representatives has won in Kerala. Our performance in Arunachal Pradesh has been excellent. We have almost registered a clean sweep in Sikkim too. This is a historic victory in Andhra Pradesh. The way the NDA’s voting percentage has increased in Tamil Nadu clearly shows what is going to happen in the future.” Modi said, “In the last 10 years, we have worked to take the country to new heights of success. One common thing that is present in the main pillars of the NDA leadership is good governance.” He said that whenever the NDA got an opportunity to serve, each of its leaders has ensured good governance across India. He said, “NDA has become synonymous with good governance.” He said that the bridge of trust between the NDA’s constituents is so strong and this unbreakable relationship is based on a strong foundation of trust. He said, “This is the biggest asset.” Modi said, “We are people dedicated to the harmony of all religions and the Constitution. Whether it is our Goa or our Northeast India… where a large number of Christian brothers and sisters live. Today the NDA has got the opportunity to serve in these states as well.
