We are publishing the excerpts of the Presidential speech for our esteemed readers:
BJP National President Shri Amit Shah addressed the opening session of the BJP National Executive Meet in Delhi on 25 September, 2017 and criticized Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi’s comment of ‘dynasty being a part of India’ and said it is only the tradition of the Congress. Shri Shah condemned the politics of violence being carried out in Kerala and planned protests in the state. He also talked about Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘New India’.
In his opening remarks, Shri Shah took a dig at Congress Vice- President Rahul Gandhi’s statements in Berkeley University, where he said that our country was running on dynastic politics. Shri Shah said, “Dynasty or family connection in launching careers is a tradition of the Congress and not of India”.
He said BJP has always worked on politics of performance. We believe on politics of performance. We are working for the poor. We strongly object to these statements, so does the nation.
BJP National President said the current President, Vice President and the Prime Minister had reached their position due to their hard work, despite their humble origins.
Shri Shah also criticized the TMC government in West Bengal and the Left government in Kerala for alleged political violence targeting BJP workers. He condemned the violence in West Bengal and Kerala.
He said BJP vehemently opposes this politics of violence. We will be conducting padyatras in Kerala to condemn the violence that was seen in the recent times, he added.
Shri Amit Shah said that from October 03-17 BJP workers will do a ‘Padyatra’ in Kerala and connect with the people. The entire party will be working for the coming years on nation-building.
He further said the UPA regime was riddled with corruption. The Congress party didn’t take a single step towards ensuring that black money stashed abroad was brought back. He said no corrupt person will be spared.
On the occasion he said 70 years post-Independence, India is still struggling under a lot of challenges. The BJP President has appealed everyone to stand by PM Shri Narendra Modi’s agendas on Clean India and New India.
He said, “We hope a new India is created under this same leadership in 2019”.
Shri Shah said the economy was stronger under this government than it was under the UPA and cited figures to make his point.
He also praised the Central government over its handling of Naxalism and terrorism, saying more terrorists were killed in its three years of rule than any other spell of three years.
