New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked the people of Maharashtra on Friday for their continued "faith" in the BJP following the party's win in two civic polls.

"Impressive victories for @BJP4Maharashtra! Great performance in Jalgaon and outstanding win in Sangli. I thank the people of Maharashtra for the continued faith," he tweeted.
