"We talk about ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said while moving the Motion of Thanks on the President's Address.

Dismissing the notion in some quarters that BJP's victory was a ‘negative vote’, he said the NDA has won a clear majority in the just-concluded Lok Sabha elections and it was a positive mandate for a government headed by Narendra Modi.

Naqvi said the last election was different from the past elections as people from Kashmir to Kanyakumari voted for his party. In the north-eastern states of the country too, the party got people's support.

"People had option to use NOTA, but they did not use it" and voted for BJP, he said.
   
Taking a jibe at those who seek votes in the name of secularism, Naqvi said the BJP won in 73 of the 90 districts indentified as minority dominated by the last UPA government.

"We have just started. We will show the results," Naqvi said, adding the government wants to strengthen the federal structure of the country.
    
He regretted that such an atmosphere prevailed in the country where every Muslim with beard and skull cap has stamp of terrorism on them and asserted that Modi-led government will set everything right.

The BJP leader said the government was committed to stamp out terrorism from the country. He said the government will work for the poor and downtrodden and ensure that benefits of development reach the last person in the queue.
    
Seconding the Motion, BJP’s J P Nadda said India voted ‘for effective leader and governance in favour of Narendra Modi’.
