“We are congratulating all of us as we have won a wonderful majority. During the election campaign, I saw that PM Modi never took any rest for three months. Day and night he has campaigned. He stated and ended with the same spirit. In Andhra Pradesh, we had three public meetings and one big rally and it has made a huge difference in winning the election in Andhra Pradesh…,” said Naidu.

“It is a very good thing that all of us have come together and will all work together with you (PM Modi). You will be taking oath as the Prime Minister on Sunday, but I wanted you to do it today itself. Whenever you take the oath, we will be with you… We will all work under your leadership,” Bihar CM Nitish Kumar said.
