BJP’s show of strength in Gandhinagar: Amit Shah files his nomination flanked by NDA allies

BJP President Amit Shah to represent Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat

BJP President Amit Shah today reached Ahmedabad, Gujarat to file his nomination for the Gandhinagar constituency in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. In a massive show of strength, he was accompanied by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Shiromani Akali Dal’s Prakash Singh Badal, Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray and Lok Janshakti Party’s Ram Vilas Paswan. Also accompanying Shah was Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani.

Addressing a rally before he filed his nomination, Shah said, “I started my political journey as a booth worker at the Sanghvi High School here in Naranpura, Ahmedabad and from there I have become the president of the party. If you remove BJP out of my life, it will be empty. I have done and given everything to the party and the country.”

He further added, “It is an honour that I will represent a constituency which has been represented by L K Advani and Atal Bihari Vajpayee. This is the same constituency which I represented five times in the state assembly. I express my gratitude to the people.”

Asserting that the people of India want to elect Prime Minister Modi again, he said, “When I ask who will lead the nation? Crowd chants Modi, Modi, everywhere. Modi has been the leader the country waited for over 70 years. The only person can provide security to the country is one man, Narendra Modi.”

He further appealed to the people of Gujarat to ensure that the BJP wins all 26 Lok Sabha seats in the state like back in 2014 so that the son of Gujarat can go back to the Parliament with tremendous pride. He promised to take forward Advani’s legacy of representing Gandhinagar constituency.

Also present at the rally was Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray who said that while the Shiv Sena and the BJP had their differences, they have sat together and sorted them out.

Addressing the public gathering, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said that the BJP and Shiv Sena had a difference of opinions and views, but they sat together and sorted them out. “Our ideologies are same, Hindutva and nationalism. My father said Hindutva is our oxygen. How could you survive without oxygen?” he said.

Challenging the opposition to name one leader as the Prime Minister candidate while addressing such public rally, he said, “The opposition has only joined hands, not ideologies. BJP and Shiv Sena were considered untouchables, but we moved ahead with saffron flags and look at where we are. We have never backstabbed and never will.”

Shah then proceeded to file his nomination papers for Gandhinagar constituency.
