"People are tired of false promises, corruption and the same old tape-recorded messages ridden with dynastic references only to hide one's own failure. They want a better tomorrow and NDA is the only alliance that can provide this change," he said.

Winding up his eight-month-long campaign, he said, "I urge all those voters in the final phase to vote in record numbers, especially the youth. Please go to vote, taking your family and friends to vote. Every vote matters!"

The BJP's prime ministerial candidate thanked the people of the country for extending their support to him and assured them he will repay them with affection and 'unprecedented development' to lay the foundation of a strong India.

Modi said that during the campaign he had a clear message that people have to decide on whether to fight with each other or to unite and fight poverty, saying the 'former will lead us nowhere while the latter will take our nation to greater heights'.

He said it was not Modi or anyone else who is fighting these elections but it is the people of India who have taken these elections on their shoulders. "Each and every citizen of India has become a driving force of change," he said.

The Gujarat Chief Minister also thanked the party workers for their tireless and selfless efforts during the campaign as they went door-to-door to spread the party's message to create a better India for future generations. He also lauded the role of the leaders from whose experience and wisdom the party derives immense strength and inspiration.

"We do not view campaigns through the limited prism of electoral victory or defeat...This campaign will be remembered for path-breaking innovation," he said.
