In his address, Modi lauded the fact that no polling booth required a re-poll of votes.
The Bharatiya Janata Party recorded a landslide victory in Gujarat claiming more than 150 out of 182 seats but lost a tight race in Himachal Pradesh against the Congress Party.
Modi congratulated BJP party workers for the Gujarat victory and saluted the Gujarat voters for their support.
"During the elections, I told Gujarat's citizens, 'This time, Narendra's record must break,'" Modi said. "And I had promised that in order for Bhupendra to beat Narendra, Narendra will work tooth and nail."
He said with the tireless hard work of all these leaders, "the BJP has created a history, by breaking all records".
In Himachal Pradesh, BJP suffered a loss at the hands of the Indian National Congress which secured 40 seats out of 68. Incumbent HP chief minister and BJP leader Jairam Thakur conceded defeat in the elections and is set to resign from his post.
Addressing the race, Modi said that BJP's loss by a mere 1% shows that the public in Himachal Pradesh did in fact try to make the party win.
He also ensured voters in the state that the BJP would remain 100% committed to bringing about progress.
With a record win in Gujarat on one hand and a concession from the BJP chief minister in Himachal Pradesh on the other, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also took to Twitter to share his reaction to the results.
