Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that chemistry had managed to defeat arithmetic in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“Elections are all about arithmetic but there is chemistry that goes beyond arithmetic. This time chemistry has defeated arithmetic,” he said while addressing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers at a thanksgiving function in Varanasi
“Some people say that politics is all about perception but we do not create perceptions. For us, transparency and hard work scores above everything else,” he said.
The Prime Minister said that he was a BJP worker and followed the directives of the party.
“I was asked to come here and on April 25 (for a roadshow) Kashi welcomed me with its ‘Vishwa Roop’ (larger than life image) that had an impact beyond Kashi and Uttar Pradesh. It impacted all parts of the country. Kashi made me PM but I will always remain a worker for you.”
The Prime Minister also thanked BJP President Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for their contribution in ensuring the BJP’s success in elections
