Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Saturday filed his nomination from Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency in Gujarat in presence of Union Ministers Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray. Before filing the nomination, Shah showcased the "power of alliance" by holding a road show along with top NDA leaders including Uddhav Thackeray, SAD leader Prakash Singh Badal and LJP founder Ram Vilas Paswan.
Speaking exclusively to News Nation during the roadshow ahead of nomination filing, Shah said, "In BJP, not leaders but workers fight the elections. We will not just repeat the 2014 Lok Sabha elections performance but also win all the 26 seats with much more difference."
When asked on Opposition parties asking questions from them in the same manner, they used to ask in 2014 when the Congress was in power, Shah said, "The Congress party is still standing in the witness box. They need to answer whether they want to give a befitting response to the terrorists and Pakistan. Whether they want to revenge the martyrdom of soldiers."
Earlier in the day, Shah addressed BJP’s ‘Vijay Sankalp Rally’ which was also attended by top leaders of NDA, including Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, SAD leader Prakash Singh Badal and LJP founder Ram Vilas Paswan.
Speaking at the rally, Shah said that Narendra Modi was the leader the country was looking for the past 70 years. "There's only one PM, one party that can provide security to this country. That is Narendra Modi, and BJP," Shah said asking people to vote for the BJP.
