  • Leaders from various political parties at a dinner organised by Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi Janpath New Delhi

Queried as to why he was saying the NDA would capture power in the 2019 polls - unlike during the 2014 polls when the BJP had spoken about its ambition of winning 272 on its own, Shah said, "Even the 272-member Government is also that of the NDA. The day the poor gets roti, kapda, makaan (food, clothing and shelter), that is when we will know we have achieved something". "Though it is a BJP convention, national politics is at such a juncture that we could expect something on that from Amitji", said the BJP functionary.

A few hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a fast by BJP MPs on April 12 to protest the impasse in Parliament for which he blamed the opposition party, Congress on Friday also announced that its workers would hold a day-long fast in all state and district headquarters on April 9 to expose the BJP's "lies" on various issues. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, BJP Mumbai chief Ashish Shelar and Union ministers Nitin Gadkari, Prakash Javadekar, Piyush Goyal and Suresh Prabhu attended the event, among several other leaders. "For New India, we need research, and technology". "For BJP, the "Karyakartas' are everything". We are privileged to receive the blessings of people of all age groups, across all sections of society.

The BJP had been treated as an "untouchable" party by others when it was founded in 1980 but it has become strong due to people's faith in it.

The function had the presence of BJP State In-charge Rajnish Kumar Singh, Sikkim BJP President D.B. Chauhan, SKM Acting President Nawin Karky, SSC Convenor Pahal Man Subba and Vice Convenor Navin Kiran Pradhan. "I sincerely hope that India, under Narendra Modi, can truly exhibit the moral leadership of the region by winning the trust, hearts and minds of the people of Jammu and Kashmir".

BJP president Amit Shah reiterated that the BJP's golden period will usher in only when it wins West Bengal and Odisha and retains power at the Centre in 2019.

His remarks at an interaction with party leaders on its 38th foundation day came against the backdrop of violent protests during a "Bharat bandh" this week, which had left at least 11 people dead. The roads towards and from the Mumbai airport roads were jammed on Thursday as heavy entourage of the political leader had reached the city.

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.

"Today 20 states and almost 70% of the country's population is ruled by BJP". There are 315 booths in each Assembly constituency.

"But the it's the country which is seeking answers from you, four generations of Congress which ruled the country what have you done", said Shah referring to Gandhi's meet with Pawar after BJP's loss in UP bypoll of Phulpur and Gorakhpur seats.
