BJP’s power play: Stage set for 2019 elections as Amit Shah takes a dig at "Rahul Baba"

BJP President Amit Shah praised the party workers for their contribution


Ahead of the elections in 2019, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday started its campaign for the upcoming polls in a mega rally organised by its party workers in Mumbai’s Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC). One can call the event as a show of power play.

While addressing the rally, BJP President Amit Shah took a dig at Congress President Rahul Gandhi and National Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar for questioning the Modi government. He said, “You question PM Narendra Modi on his governance but the people of this country have been questioning the rule of Congress since its inception.”

Earlier, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said that the BJP government is trying to diminish the SC/ST Act and reservation. To this, Shah said that Rahul Gandhi is propagating lies and asserted that BJP will never do away with the reservations in their rule.

Slamming the opposition for disrupting the parliamentary sessions, Shah said, “We are ready to debate anytime and we have nothing to hide.” He blamed the opposition for the parliament not being able to function smoothly during the sessions.

Praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address to the party workers, Shah said that opposition is scared of Modi which is why the opposition is joining hands to fight BJP in the upcoming elections. 

“Modi government has brought satisfaction to every poor household in the country. Under Narendra Modi rule, lotus has bloomed in every part of this country.”

While concluding his speech, Shah appealed to the party workers to propagate about the work of Modi government as he announced that the stage for 2019 Lok Sabha elections is set.

Almost three lakh BJP karyekartas or workers were present from all across Maharashtra at the event with the core team of party’s Maharashtra unit including Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, State President Raosaheb Danwe, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Railway Minister Piyush Goel along with other ministers and MLAs.
