    New Delhi, Jul 6: Giving credit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and "good governance" in BJP-ruled states for the party's electoral victory in the Lok Sabha elections, party president Rajnath Singh on Sunday said the kind of faith people reposed on it could not have been possible otherwise.

    "Had it not been good governance provided by our party-run state governments and had we not have a popular leader like Narendra Modi then we would not have achieved this tremendous electoral results. Probably, the kind of faith people reposed on us could not have been possible," Singh said.

    The Home Minister was speaking at a function to pay tribute to Bhartiya Jana Sangh founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee on his birth anniversary and also launching the "join BJP" online membership drive.

    The function was also attended by party veteran L K Advani. Describing the people's response towards the party in the elections as "very good", he said, "After observing the performances of various BJP-run state governments, people realised that if any political party can give good governance and development-oriented government then it is BJP. So we got a clear majority at the Centre."

    On the occasion, Singh also remembered veteran party leaders Kushabhau Thakre, Deen Dayal Upadhaya and others for sacrificing their lives for the party.
