The results of exit polls are not final but gives indications and by and large final results of polls are same, asserted Union Minister for Transport, Shipping and Ganga Rejuvenation, Nitin Gadkari, today. Talking to reporters informally at the launch of poster of biopic Prime Minister Narendra Modi starring Vivek Oberoi, at his residence, this morning, he said whatever we (NDA) have done, people have voted for the government and we are sure to retain the power. Modi has brought world recognition to the country and NDA will retain power on May 23.
The people in the country have reposed faith in the leadership of Modi, he added. Gadkari reiterated that he was not in the race for Prime Ministership and about the portfolio he said it is the prerogative of the Prime Minister.
Later to a question on why he should continue with the same portfolio, he told a select group of reporters that there was much work left in River Linking project and he was unhappy over the lack of water availability in many parts of the country. Gadkari also expressed his displeasure over long stretch of polling to seven phases and felt could have been winded up in three phases. The model code of conduct imposed during the period of electioneering was a obstacle in carrying out relief measures in drought hit areas.
The outcome in Maharashtra will be similar to that of 2014 results BJP-SS gaining upper hand. Actor Vivek Oberoi lauded the workaholic Narendra Modi and Nitin Gadkari saying they are our action heroes. To a question on biopic on Rahul Gandhi, Oberoi said what has he done for the country and if he going to do some better, we can thing of “Shahjade ab hoga nyay” (Justice will be done now Prince).
Those who are infamous for taking commission dragged us to Election Commission. Those who did not go to Tees Hazari Court, forced me to go to Court, Oberoi said.
