New Delhi, March 11 (IANS) As the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) – that heads the ruling NDA at the Centre – swept Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand in the state elections results on Saturday, the corporate fraternity said it expects better coordination between the Centre and the states in the coming days.
Congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah on its victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, ASSOCHAM President Sandeep Jajodia today said one of the important takeaways of the poll outcome is that a far better coordination is expected between the country’s largest state and the ruling BJP-led National Democratic Alliance at the Centre.
The BJP is running neck-and-neck with the Congress in Goa and Manipur, while in Punjab the Congress was headed for a two-third majority.
“Besides, Modi’s agenda on economic development and to take on the challenges, upfront, has gone down very well with the people of the key states who are looking with a new hope for an economic development of the states. Most of the states are now being ruled by the BJP and its allies and far better level of development coordination is expected,” Jajodia said.
Naushad Forbes, President, CII, said: “CII warmly congratulates the winning political parties in the states of Goa, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh for their performance. By and large the results ensure that the process of reforms would gain further credence, support and momentum at the central level.”
