Hours after the BJP pulled off a stunning victory in the Lok Sabha elections, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Friday took a dig at the rival political quarters for criticising PM Modi during electioneering saying, “people have silenced the Opposition with their votes.”
The IT and Law minister said, “This is a historic win. In Bihar 39 out of 40 seats. BJP crossed 300 seats share mark. People with their votes have silenced those leaders who used to abuse Modi ji.”
Prasad has defeated two-time MP Shatrughan Sinha in Patna Sahib constituency. According to Election Commission’s (EC) website, Prasad defeated Sinha by a margin of 2,78,198 ballots. Prasad won 5,95,490 votes, while Sinha won 3,17,292 votes.
