On Saturday, Launching a mocking attack on the Congress party, BJP president Amit Shah said that despite ruling the country for nearly 55 years, the oldest political party failed to change the destiny of India. The BJP president also accused the Congress party of promoting the dynasty culture in the Indian polity.
Amit Shah said ''Rahul baba (Gandhi) and company’s family ruled for 55 years, it is not a small time period. Their family ruled for 55 years and couldn’t bring much change in the country. PM Modi ji ruled for 55 months and tried to achieve what they could not achieve in 55 years,'' while addressing a rally in Pune. During his speech, Shah shifted his focus on his party's ongoing face-off with the TMC government in West Bengal led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Shah alleged that the Mamata government is scared of BJP's rising footprints in West Bengal and that's why creating obstacles for the saffron party by blocking its rallies and denying permission to saffron leaders.
Shah also said ''An affidavit was filed in the SC that BJP's yatra will create law and order problem. Yesterday, a channel did a sting operation in which their IB officer can be seen saying that 'there was no law and order question. This shows that Mamata di is scared, that's why we made such a report,''.
Earlier on Friday, Shah addressed a rally in UP during which he called illegal migrants a vote bank of the Samajwadi Party and the BSP and also targeted the opposition over the issues of triple talaq and the Ayodhya dispute. He warned the every single intruder will be sent home if the BJP returns to power.
