Take pledge for BJP's 2019 win, Shah tells party

Replying to a question about relations with its ally Shiv Sena, Shah said, Sena is an ally of the BJP in Centre and in Maharashtra. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader".

"If a government, which has been ruling in the state for the last 18 years, can not at least provide drinking water to the people of the state, then it has no right to stay in power", Shah pointed out. "However, (Chief Minister Devendra) Fadnavis is protecting them and Shah, atop the mountain of corruption and speaking of transparency and corruption-less governance, which is "a joke", said Chavan.

Multiple issues, including the recent Dalit agitation, have pushed the BJP on to the back foot, and both leaders sought to underscore that the party stood for the poor and the marginalised, recounting the various schemes that the government runs for the poor.

"The BJP came to power with false promises and utter lies, the country's social fabric and integrity is under threat, the economy is in ruins along with unemployment, foreign policy, agriculture, internal security".

He was apparently referring to the efforts being made by various parties like the TRS, the Trinamool Congress and the TDP to sew up a coalition to take on Modi-led BJP in the next general elections.

Ahead of the elections in 2019, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday started its campaign for the upcoming polls in a mega rally organised by its party workers in Mumbai's Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC).

The celebration is significant for the larger political messaging from Shah, BJP functionaries say.

He said at present, 70 per cent of the country's population was under BJP rule.

The BJP, which was long considered a "Brahmin-Baniya" party, made a Dalit India's president when it got its first chance to elect a person of its choice for the top constitutional position.

For the BJP, the PM said that the Karyakartas were everything.

A total of 50,000 vehicles, including cars, trucks and private buses, are expected to enter Mumbai with BJP supporters for Friday's event, sources said. "Setting aside their ideological differences, all these Opposition parties are coming together to fight the Modi wave".

Attacking Congress president Rahul Gandhi for demanding the details of the work done by the NDA government, he said the "nation is demanding the accounts of four generations from you". I had heard a tale that when a devastating flood comes, all the trees, plants, leaves, etc flow away and then all animals including snake, mongoose, dog, cat, Cheetah, Lion jumps on a single banyan tree because they all are scared of the water below the tree.

A BJP Karyakarta from Bihar asked the Prime Minister on the four years of the NDA Government.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with district BJP Presidents of all districts across the country, in a special programme.
