Modi thanks people for their continued faith as BJP wins in Maha civic polls

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today thanked the people of Maharashtra for their continued "faith" in the BJP following the party's win in two civic polls.

The BJP scored a big win in the Sangli municipal elections by defeating the Congress-NCP alliance and also swept the Jalgaon civic body in Maharashtra where it trounced the Shiv Sena.

"Impressive victories for @BJP4Maharashtra! Great performance in Jalgaon and outstanding win in Sangli. I thank the people of Maharashtra for the continued faith," he tweeted.

BJP president Amit Shah also hailed the win.

"This continued support for BJP in Maharashtra reflects people's desire for a better quality of life, being delivered by the state government led by CM Devendra Fadnavis, and Modi government's commitment to take Maharashtra to greater heights," he said.
