Health Minister Kamineni Srinivas, who belongs to the BJP, on Saturday attributed his party’s thumping victory in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections to the good governance and confidence the electorate reposed in the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Participating in the celebrations at the State party office here, Mr. Srinivas said people believed that the reforms being implemented by the NDA Government and demonetisation were essential to give a boost to the economy and that they would yield the desired results in spite of the initial hiccups.

He said the Opposition parties’ false propaganda against the BJP had failed to wean voters away from the party. The all-round development witnessed in the Hindi heartland vindicated the BJP’s stand against garnering votes on caste lines, he said.

Earlier, led by Mr. Srinivas, BJP State general secretary J. Syam Kishore, Minority Morcha State president S.K. Baji and Mahila Morcha State president S. Malathi Rani and party workers celebrated the victory by bursting crackers and distributing sweets.
