New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday thanked the voters for electing a stable government and praised the spirit of the people.
Speaking in the Lok Sabha in his reply to the Motion of Thanks to President Ram Nath Kovind's address to Parliament, Modi said: "After many decades, the country has given a strong mandate. They have brought back a government by giving it more seats.
"In today's atmosphere, India's vibrant democracy is a moment to be proud of."
Modi said that the Lok Sabha election results showed that "more than themselves, the people of India are thinking about the good of the nation. And this spirit is wonderful".
The Prime Minister said he does not view elections as to who won and who lost.
"For me, what is satisfying is the opportunity to serve 130 crore Indians and work to make a positive difference in their lives."
