Goyal said, "I congratulate Manoj Tiwari, Amit Shah and PM Modi for huge success of the party. Leadership of BJP and PM Modi has been able to give this country a good government. Since the PM was engaged in the development of the nation continuously for last three years people of Delhi have taken right decision after comparing the work of the other parties," He rubbished baseless allegations being made against the BJP with regard to tampering of EVM machines, by saying that these are the machines that had been used by the AAP.
