BJP president Amit Shah, whose party is in power since 2014, on Saturday predicted massive victory for the saffron party in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and claimed to win all the 26 Lok Sabha seats in Gujarat. Shah, who held a road show along with Union Minister Rajnath Singh before filing his nomination from the Gandhinagar constituency, said that not the BJP but the Congress needs to give answers even in 2019.
Speaking exclusively to News Nation, 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 giver 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.
