"Congress had 17 seats but were not able to get the support to reach to magic figure. We spoke to other parties and were able to get their support, so we approached the Governor," Shah said.

He said the entire campaign in the Uttar Pradesh was based on development and not on the lines of castes and religion. The BJP president said the people of UP have rejected dynasty politics and caste-based politics, which were the main basis of the campaign by the opposition parties.

"We never said that we don't want Muslim votes," he said.

Shah further praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership and said he knew that people of UP would support them.

He said BJP-led government at the Centre was working for the welfare of poor and has launched several schemes to benefit them.

Shah said the win in UP has proved that people approve BJP-led government's initiative to curb black money menace and corruption.

"We have freed he nation from policy paralysis. We have made several legislations to stop corruption and black money transactions. We have also put cap on cash donations to political parties. We are committed to weed out this black money menace," he said.
