Describing the 2014 general election as unprecedented, the BJP veteran also said that party workers worked hard in poll battle.

"I have seen all elections since 1952. When 2014 elections were over, I felt for me and my party this election was unprecedented. I was delighted as there was never such results. Our party workers worked very hard in this elections," Advani said after unfurling the tricolour at his residence here.

The veteran leader, however, said, "But I would not deny that maximum contribution to this victory was from the Opposition who were fighting against me. Had they not committed so many grave errors and had people not witnessed so much corruption in the last 10 years then probably this kind of results would not have come."

BJP won 282 seats in the Lok Sabha elections in May surpassing its own record and became the first party to get absolute majority almost after more than two decades.

"The massive campaign carried out under the leadership of Narendra Modi also contributed to the victory. But the biggest contribution was from our Opposition," Advani said, adding "The expectation from us have gone up because of the spectacular victory."

Thanking Prime Minister for his extempore speech, Advani said, "After the election results, this was the 68th Independence Day. I thanked the PM for not giving any written speech on the occasion of 68th Independence Day. He addressed extempore at the ramparts of Red Fort and it has a good impact on the public."
