Talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Khanna said, “The verdict against BJP in three states Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chatisgarh is a verdict against the BJP’s state governments but not against the performance of the central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”
Claiming that state assembly elections are fought on local issues concerning MLAs, the BJP National vice president said, “The verdict of the people in three states is not against the central government but against the performance of state government including the ministers and MLAs of the ruling party. BJP has increased its vote share by one percent in Madhya Pradesh and is just 1.5 percent below the vote share of the Congress party in Rajasthan.”

Saying that the biggest achievement of the Modi government at the centre is the crusade against corruption, the BJP National Vice president while replying to questions on Rafael deal and a case filed against Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah said, “I can’t comment on Rafael deal as the matter is sub judicious before the Supreme Court of the country and as far as allegations against Jay Shah, the son of Amit Shah, are concerned Jay Shah has submitted his reply to the Supreme Court of India and law will take its own course.”
Replying to a question on the resignation of RBI Governor Urjit Patel, Khanna said, “I can’t comment on the resignation of RBI Governor but I can say that hours after his resignation, government has appointed a new Governor for RBI.” (KNS)
