The Indian American community celebrated BJP's seventh straight victory in the Gujarat Assembly elections at Royal Albert Palace in New Jersey.

Addressing a sizable crowd, Jagdish Sewhani, President of the American Indian Public Affairs Committee, said that it is only the first such event as many more will be organized across the United States in future.

"The win demonstrates the complete confidence of the people of Gujarat in the party and PM Narendra Modi's leadership, this is a vote in favor of performance and progress", Sehwani said. "Gujaratis are smart; they completely reject the free-for-all Revdi Culture and hold steadfast to the belief that each person must do his/her  part to help the nation prosper (Sabh Ka Prayas)."

‌Sewhani went on to say that while it is customary for voters to support anti-incumbents in elections, this was the first time in Gujarat that they did the opposite, reinstating the BJP government for a record-breaking seventh consecutive term.

He credited Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the win, who diligently campaigned and spoke at 31 rallies, three roadshows, including a 50-kilometer road show in Ahmedabad.

Further, Sewhani told the gathering of Indiian Americans that India which is led by a vibrant and visionary Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will be among the top three economies in the world in 2047, when it would celebrate its 100th year of independence.

Community members Dr. Vithal Dhaduk described Prime Minister Modi as a committed, hard-working leader and praised the people of Gujarat for returning the BJP to power and reinstating Bhupendra Patel as Gujarat's Chief Minister while Dr. Sudhir Parikh lauded Modi and Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel for their historic achievement and asked what more could be done for Mother India.

‌‌Speakers who took part in the celebrations included prominent community members Shobhna Patel, Albert Jassani, Pramod Bhagat, and Mukesh Kashiwala.
