BJP MPs protest against Congress for disrupting Budget session

Ahead Of BJP's Mega Celebration Massive Traffic Jams In Mumbai

Shah's speech, as well as the ongoing brainstorming within the BJP on simultaneous polls, gives an indication that the Maharashtra polls may be advanced from October 2019 to April-May 2019, to be held simultaneously with Lok Sabha elections.

The BJP chief's address was aimed at boosting the morale of party workers, who may be slightly confused over attacks on the party from various social and political quarters.

"When Atal ji (former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee) founded the party in Mumbai 36 years ago, he had predicted that the "lotus" (BJP's symbol) will bloom", he said.

"Responding to Mr Shah's barb that Siddaramaiah is not an "AHINDA" (a Kannada acronym for minorities, backward classes and Dalits) leader but "AHINDU" (non-Hindu) leader, the Karnataka chief minister had said last month in Mysuru that Mr Shah should first clarify whether he himself is "a Hindu or not". The BJP president, however, evaded a direct response to questions on the Shiv Sena's constant criticism of his party and Sena president Uddhav Thackeray's recent announcement that it would go solo in the next elections.

"People have taken us to this level and now we have to live for them", he said. "However, the people want to know what his party has done for four generations", Shah added. He also termed the BJP as a party that is a true believer in democratic ethos that is devoid of divisions and dynasty politics. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi ensured that Parliament functions smoothly, but the Opposition did not let that happen", he said.

In Delhi, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad hit out at the Congress and other rival political parties opposed to its ideology and said in its journey spanning 38 years, the ruling party has emerged as a "big platform for national unity". "Setting aside their ideological differences, all these Opposition parties are coming together to fight the Modi wave".

When asked whether the Skripal case could lead directly to war, he responded: 'Not the Salisbury poisoning, but the pressure. He said establishing its origin required "other inputs", some of them intelligence-based, that the Government has access to.

Speaking on the Supreme Court's amendment of the SC/ST Act, Shah said his party is not going to abolish reservation from the nation.

"Our golden period will come when we win Bengal and Odisha and retain power under the leadership of Narendra Modi in 2019 with a full majority", he said.

"Congress is in a state of shock and it is out of this that words like ideology are coming from them", Sitharaman said, added that it was unusual and ironical that a party which gave birth to dictatorship in the country is talking of "values and ideology". It is a strength of BJP that affects opponents.

People can now see where those are who practised this untouchability and those who were its victims, he said in a reference to the party's rise and the fall of socialist parties and the Congress. They (opposition parties) are turning increasingly violent against the BJP.

Modi used digital application - NarendraModi App - for the interaction, during which he appealed the party workers to refrain from losing temper and using offensive language.
