It is your love and affection that I attained this position at the Centre,” he said.

He said that not only in Bihar but BJP has also emerged victorious in Jammu and Kashmir, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat.

He also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his strategies on Covid-19 management and said that it is because of his efforts that the country is in a better position when a country like the USA has not been able to control the pandemic.
