State BJP's booth-level meet today

BJP leaders to get pep talk at national executive meet

The key to expansion of the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) national electoral footprint is to successfully map polling booths across the country, party president Amit Shah said on Monday.

Meanwhile BJP, with its thirteen Chief Ministers, 1400 legislators, 280 Parliamentarians - in all around 2,500 delegates, will be holding a National Executive committee meeting at Delhi's Talkatora Stadium on Monday. No one will be spared.

According to a senior party leader, the speeches at the conclave and the resolution would emphasise that these two measures have put the country on the path of progress, correcting the past mistakes.

A former chief minister during the Shiv Sena-BJP government, Rane defected to Congress in 2005 after criticising Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray's son and political heir Uddhav. He also asked the party cadre to reach out to each and every village to connect voters with the government.

Briefing reporters, Union Minister and BJP leader Piyush Goyal said in his speech, the BJP president condemned the "politics of violence" in CPI-M led Left Front ruled Kerala and Trinamool-ruled West Bengal.

Expressing the party's confidence of their victory in the upcoming 2019 General Elections, Arun Jaitley said, "We are sure of a victory in 2019 and that "New India" will be made under us".

Jaitley also said that the Prime Minister will announce an important scheme for the poor at 6:30 pm on Monday.

Shah explained that the campaign was successful because loyal party workers were spending at least 15 days at the booth level; in some instances, he added, it was even as long as six months to a year.

"The fact is that the BJP is only an instrument of electoral math and those electoral dividends are reaped by polarising the society".

Dwelling on a number of steps the government has taken to get rid of black money and its eradication, Amit Shah spoke about how demonetisation sent a message that this government will deal sternly with black money.

He was a minister in successive Congress governments till 2014 when the party lost power to the BJP. "When Opposition was in government, power was a means of enjoyment for it".

Mr Modi also said that their use of harsh language can not be a substitute for substantive charges against his government. He said that initiatives such as Swachh Bharat had become a movement of public welfare because of mass participation.
