BJP chief Amit Shah on Sunday urged the BJP party workers to work hard to secure victory in 200 seats in the upcoming Assembly polls. Shah was addressing a BJP booth workers’ meeting in Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh.
According to the reports, Amit Shah accused Congress party of indulging in vote bank politics ahead of elections. He further attacked Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) for using infiltrators as their vote banks and said his party considers the issue of illegal infiltrators as a matter of national security. He went on to say that the BJP government will expel every infiltrator from the country.
“40 Lakh infiltrators were identified & as soon as it happened, right from ‘Diggi Raja’ to ‘Rahul Baba’, all of them started making noises in Parliament. For Congress, SP & BSP infiltrators are vote banks, for BJP they are an issue of national security”, said Amit Shah.
Amit Shah speaking to the party workers said the BJP securing more than 200 seats will inspire other BJP party workers across the country. “The party can form the government with less than 200 seats, but we need to cross the 200-mark because our workers in West Bengal, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are looking towards Madhya Pradesh,” Shah said to BJP party workers.
He further added said that BJP is the party of workers and even a tea seller can become the PM. Shah addressing the gathering of booth workers shared his experience of being a small worker in the party before being the national president of the party. He thanked the party workers for their sacrifices and said, “It’s their sacrifices that have brought us here today. We should score such a mammoth victory in MP and then in 2019 that we should rule from Panchayat to Parliament for the next 50 years.’’
Amit Shah slammed Kamal Nath for his inability to develop Madhya Pradesh despite being Union minister and asked party workers to knock on every household in the state and talk about the injustice they faced under the Congress rule. The BJP president challenged the Congress to declare its chief ministerial face in MP. He took a dig at the state Congress leadership by saying that elections cannot be won by “Raja, Maharaja and Udyogpati”, a reference to Congress leaders Digvijaya Singh, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Kamal Nath, respectively.
The Election Commission of India (ECI) has announced the dates for the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Mizoram and Telangana. The states of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan will go to poll on November 28 and December 7 respectively and the results will be announced on December 11, 2018.
