Jaipur: Vasundhara Raje, who failed five years ago on account of infighting in BJP, is making a comeback in Rajasthan with a bigger mandate than the party’s performance in 2003, when the BJP won 120 seats with a record vote share of 39.85%.
The party in 2008 lost the assembly elections, and the Congress party, led by Ashok Gehlot, formed the government.
The 60-year-old Raje, who will take over as next chief minister of Rajasthan, says, 'I was assured of BJP's landslide victory in the state, I was confident.'
Wrapped in a saffron sari awaiting results on Sunday she said, 'But this is semi final and we will form government under leadership of Narendra Modi at centre too.'
'There is a big hand of Narendra Modi in the victory of Rajasthan. The people of Rajasthan wanted to see the same development as in Gujarat,' Raje added.
'This victory is dedicated to people by God's blessings and our workers and BJP president Rajnath Singh,' she said.
