New Delhi/Ahmedabad: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said the apology made by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi during his victory speech on Thursday was indicative of his 'humble and polite' nature.

Senior BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Balbir Punj said, "This only displays the humble and polite nature of Narendra Modi that people of Gujarat have been so generous, that they have blessed the BJP for the fifth time. He (Modi) was feeling humble on the occasion. As a polite and humble person, he admitted that he was not perfect. Modi conceded while addressing the people that he might have committed some mistakes as Chief Minister and sought the forgiveness from 60 million people of Gujaratis…"

The saffron party won 115 seats of the state assembly out of 182 against Congress’ 61 seats.

Modi had addressed the crowd in Hindi rather than Gujarati. Supporters of Modi shouted ‘Modi for PM’ at his victory speech.

Former Samajwadi Party MP Shahid Siddique said that Modi is a very smart politician. “He has apologised but has also twisted his apology. But I also believe he cannot offer a better apology because before this he used to say that 'for what should I apologise.”
