Elated at Prime Minister Modi's visit to Varanasi to thank voters, another proposer Prof Annapurna Shukla, said, "We are proud of him and happy to see him again in Varanasi as Prime Minister. He is doing excellent and we wish he keeps serving country like this."
Talking about the Ganga Project, she said, "He has done such great work for Ganga but still a lot needs to be done. We need to introduce modern techniques for this and he is trying everything possible for this. He has people's support."
Another proposer who was present at the time of Modi's nomination, Subhash Chandra Gupta, said, "We were little unhappy as he could not attend Ganga Aarti last time because of shortage of time but we are happy for him and more happy to see him again as Prime Minister of India."
All four proposers have been sent invitations after which they are likely to get a chance to meet Prime Minister Modi tomorrow in the holy city.
Four proposers of Modi include Dom Raja's descendant Jagdish Chaudhary, Prof Annapurna Shukla, retired scientist Dr Rama Shankar Patel, and senior BJP leader Subhash Gupta. They were present during Modi's nomination.
The BJP, which had won 282 seats in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections managed to increase its tally and notched up 303 seats in the 2019 elections. Modi defeated his nearest Samajwadi Party rival Shalini Yadav by a huge margin of over 4.80 lakh votes.
This will be the first time when a non-Congress party has managed to secure a majority on its own for the second consecutive term after Indira Gandhi had won in 1971. Earlier, Jawaharlal Nehru had performed that feat.
