Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said, "I am happy that the trust of the people is increasing in the BJP due to the influence of the policy of 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas' by Prime Minister Narendra Modi."
"The Chief Minister of Delhi says that we divide the people but with these people joining the BJP, it is seen that the BJP unites people," he was quoted as having said in the release.
