New Delhi:

BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday held meetings with his party leaders of the seven Northeastern states as part of a drive to ensure that the party’s win in the general election 2019.

BJP media head Anil Baluni said Shah held separate meetings with Lok Sabha ‘toli’ (group) of Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Manipur in Manipur.

Prior to his visit to Manipur, the BJP president was in West Bengal for two days and would reach Odisha on Sunday.

Baluni described Shah’s visit to these eastern and Northeastern regions as part of BJP’s Look East policy.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has often spoken about his government’s emphasis on the development of these regions as India cannot be strong if some of its parts remain underdeveloped and Shah has been visiting there frequently to ensure their all-round development,” Baluni said.

West Bengal, Odisha and the Northeast have emerged central to Shah’s plans for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls as he believes that the BJP can improve on its tally there and make up for any likely loss it may suffer in other states.
