People who understand the issue well and know what the BJP has been doing are standing firmly behind the party. Nowadays, people would not be swayed by impressive speeches or educational qualifications, Biren said.

All those people killed in the violence are martyrs and the displaced people are suffering for the Nation, and their suffering will bring a brighter future, he said.
