Mohammad Kaif, an ex-Indian National Congress MP candidate and former India player, was one of the many to wish Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) win in the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. The ex-Indian cricketer got a detailed reply on nature of the win in both states.

BJP and its allies won 325 out of 403 seats in Uttar Pradesh elections, while in Uttarakhand, BJP won 57 out of the 70 seats.

“Congratulations @BJP4India and @narendramodi ji for a spectacular victory in UP and Uttarakhand. UP victory is massive. #ElectionResults,” Kaif tweeted.

Modi gave a hint of what he thought about the nature of the win in his Twitter reply.

“Thanks a lot. Yes, the scale and support is historical,” he wrote on Twitter.

In 2014, Kaif had contested in the general elections for Indian National Congress from Phulpur, Uttar Pradesh. BJP’s Keshav Prasad Maurya, with 5,03,564 votes, won the seat. Kaif finished fourth with 58,127 votes.

However, in 2015, Kaif was nominated by Modi for the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan, in which the latter participated.

Kaif recently led the Chattaisgarh team in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He has played 13 Tests and 125 ODIs for India, scoring 624 and 2753 runs respectively.
