BJP's Journey From 1980 Till Today on Its 38th Foundation Day

In Hubballi Shah said the BJP is not against reservation and the party would protect the interest of the oppressed classes

Mumbai: Launching its election campaign for the 2019 elections, BJP President Amit Shah on Friday urged party workers to take a pledge to ensure it retained power with full majority to help achieve Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dream of "New India".

According to a statement from the party, as per the information received at the party headquarters in the city flag hoisting ceremonies were held in all 40 constituencies all over the state where party workers rejoiced with slogans and fire crackers. Our opponents can not digest our success. They are unable to digest that a poor person born into a backward family is serving as Prime Minister. Despite attempts by the opposition to isolate the BJP, the party, along with the allies, will win the 2019 polls, he added.

He claimed that witnessing the response of the BJP activists at the 38th Foundation Day rally on Friday, it is clear even the party workers are resigned to the BJP's ouster in 2019. "So when the Uri terror attack (2016) happened, Modi avenged it withing matter of days by sending soldiers across Pakistan for surgical strikes", said Shah.

He took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi and said, " Rahul baba you question our intentions. No one has demolished it.

"Rahul ji, (Sharad) Pawar sahab, open your ears and listen". "Petrol prices never touched '81 during the rule of the UPA. This is the BJP's commitment".

He also asked party MPs to see a drama on Maratha king Shivaji, being performed in Delhi and noted that he had travelled to Pune from Gujarat nearly 30 years back to see it.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar and President Vinay Tendulkar had sent greetings to party workers on the occasion of the foundation day.

The BJP president's remarks came in the backdrop of the recent controversy and agitation after a Supreme Court ruling regarding the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, which is seen by many as dilution of the law.

Some of the BJP's own MPs have spoken out about the targeting of people from the SC and ST communities. However, after this, Shah said that the golden period of the BJP is yet to come. He said: "Hamari hardik iccha hain ki woh saath mein rahein (It is our heartfelt wish that they stay with us)".

"Then, snakes take shelter in the banyan tree, mongoose climb on it and so as dogs, cats, cheetahs and lions….because of the fear of the (flood) water below", Shah said addressing a mammoth rally at the MMRDA Grounds coinciding with the 38th foundation day celebrations of the BJP.

Singh further slammed those spreading false notion that the BJP is an outsider's party which has no knowledge about the state's wants and desires and asserted that Sikkim and its people are always close to the heart of the BJP. "They include BSP-SP (the Bahujan Samaj Party-Samajwadi Party), TDP-Congress, Congress-Trinamool Congress, etc". During a rally in Mumbai Amit Shah said that the opposition parties with animals have created a furore. Also, the newer allies that Shah referred to are parties from the northeast, which contributes very few MPs.

"In the BJP there are no divisions, no dynasty politics and no I versus you. This was a clear message to say - "don't desert", Jondhale said.
