Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today said Gujarat voters are mature and so the BJP is ruling there for 22 years and expressed hope that the party will also win the Assembly elections in the western state.
The Congress, he said, would be swept away both in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.
Results of the Assembly polls of the two states will be declared on December 18.
The people had elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014 on the issue of development, ending casteism, dynastic rule and communalism, Das told a press conference.
"The entire country has accepted our leadership," Das said.
Speaking on Jharkhand, the chief minister said the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) was not required anymore in the state.
The JMM was floated by A K Roy, Binod Bihari Mahato and Shibu Soren for a separate state. Since Jharkhand was formed in 2000 by former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the JMM is not required now, Das said.
Speaking on developing tourism in the state, Das said Mandro in Sahibganj would be developed as a tourist spot besides three hills in Rajmahal hills would be developed as 'Krishna Pahad' by the ISKCON.
Maluti and Massanjore in the Santhal Pargana region were also being developed as tourist spots and work was on at Rajarappa temple and Parasnath.
Tourism would increase the footfall of visitors and generate employment in the state, the chief minister said.
