BJP leader LK Advani said change takes time, but the Government is going in the right direction

Days after raising a banner of revolt against Prime Minister Narendra Modi following the BJP’s resounding defeat in the Bihar polls, party patriarch LK Advani on Sunday said the government is on the right track to bring achhe din in the country. 

Talking to reporters after exercising his franchise for the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation election at a polling booth in Khanpur area here, he said: “I believe that the whole system takes its own time. Since, the government is going in the right direction, I believe that the results will also be good.” 

He was asked whether the Modi government has failed to fulfil its promise of bringing acche din (a popular slogan of BJP during 2014 Lok Sabha elections), especially in the wake of recent price rise. 

Meanwhile, voting took place for six municipal corporation in the state, including Ahmedabad. 

Party veterans Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Shanta Kumar and Yashwant Sinha had issued a strongly-worded statement after the Bihar poll debacle, saying that the party has been emasculated in the last year and was being forced to kow-tow to a handful. 

To a query on how he sees this election turning out for the ruling party after the Bihar drubbing, Advani said BJP has put extra effort to ensure that they win civic body polls. 

“I can say that consciousness of our party has increased (after the Bihar result). All efforts were made here to see that the result comes in our favour. And these efforts will be certainly reflected in the result,” he said. 

The MP from Gandhinagar said that local body polls were as important as the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
