Union Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday morning thanked the people for “blessing” the BJP, as she reflected upon the past five years of the BJP-led NDA government in a series of tweets. 

Irani also targeted the opposition saying the general election was about “people versus the opposition".

The 43-year-old tweeted: “24 hours to go...while most of us will be glued to our TV sets tomorrow to watch vote by vote, count by count analysis, here’s taking this opportunity to say thank you for the countless blessings of millions across the Nation for my party and my leadership”. 

She wrote: “We are all humbled to bear witness to the hard work, the perseverance and the selflessness of karyakartas who seek no post, no glory for self but are purely driven with a strong desire to build a New India—resilient, resurgent, committed to sabka saath, sabka vikas.” 

“We are conscious of the sacrifices made by the families of karyakartas especially in Kerala and West Bengal. No words will ever be enough to pay homage to those who died. However, the best tribute would be that every day we contribute constructively to Nation building.”

Irani, who is a Rajya Sabha member from Gujarat, also slammed the opposition parties for “constantly targeting PM Modi for five years”.

She said: “In the last 5 years not a day went by when Narendra Modi was not subjected to humiliation and hateful barbs by the opposition.  However, as karyakartas we take pride that the citizens of the Nation stood by the PM through every endeavour, every initiative.”

In another post, she said the people of the country "stood firm against the people who screamed 'Bharat ke tukde honge' (India will be divided)".

She added: “This election was about the people versus the opposition. The people stood firm against the anarchists who screamed ‘Bharat ke tukde honge’. It is to those citizens that I give my grateful thanks for they resolutely and unabashedly believed in ‘Bharat’ & her future.”

The seven-phase general election was held between April 11 and May 19. The counting of votes will be held on May 23.
