Addressing the ‘Vijay Sankalp Sabha’ Shri Amit Shah said, “I started here in 1982 as a booth-level worker. From distributing pamphlets, putting up posters, doing booth-level work, today I am fortunate that my party – the BJP – has made me the National President of the world’s largest party. It has been a great journey for me,” Shri Shah said. “If you take out BJP from my life, I will be left with zero (shunya),” he added.
Home Minister Shri Rajnath Singh said Shri Amit Shah is going to contest from the seat where our veteran leader Shri LK Advani used to contest. This is a big move, and I am sure Shri Amit Shah will live up to the expectations of this constituency. Further he said if Indira Gandhi can be praised for dividing Pakistan, why shouldn’t PM Shri Narendra Modi get the credit for Balakot air strike.
Union Minister Shri Nitin Gadkari said the BJP National President Shri Amit Shah has made our party largest in the world. He has taken the party to a new high.
Speaking at the Vijay Sankalp Sabha, Uddhav Thackeray chief Shri Shiv Sena said my father taught me to do everything from heart. Earlier issues that Shiv Sena raised were of the people and later BJP-Shiv Sena jointly settled them. Now the alliance is strong and will get wonderful results in the upcoming elections in Maharashtra and Gujarat.
