Budget Session a "winner" for govt: Modi

Melba UnderwoodApr 12, 2017

PTI reported that representatives of all NDA allies across the country will participate in the meeting during the evening, which will be followed by dinner. The meeting also passed a resolution endorsing Modi government's policies and called upon people vote him back to power in the next general elections. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said the NDA is performing well and the recent Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections reflect the endorsement of NDA's policies and programmes for the welfare of people. While asking NDA allies to highlight and implement poor-centric schemes of the government, the Prime Minister also said that the neo-middle class wants to become part of the country's development story.

"Modi has emerged as the poor's messiah", he claimed.

Leaders of 31 NDA allies, including the new friends the saffron party won over in Goa and northeastern states, will attend the meeting after BJP president Amit Shah reached out to them.

Setting their sight on the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, top NDA leaders today pledged to work unitedly to win a second term under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asserted his "strong" leadership was required for India's progress.

A senior Shiv Sena functionary confirmed that Uddhav and Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray were also going for the meeting.

Speaking on the relationship with the Shiv Sena, Jaitley said, "Shiv Sena is the oldest BJP ally".

Even when Modi was the chief minister and led the BJP to victories in three state elections (2002, 2007 and 2012), the highest number of seats that the BJP was able to get was 129 seats. Sena sources said that the party will use their support as a bargaining chip to press for more ministerial berths in both the Centre and State governments.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to pay obeisance at the 11th century Linjgaraj temple here during his two-day Odisha tour to attend the BJP national executive here.

The NDA resolution underlined India's emergence as a leading developing economy under Modi's "extraordinary" leadership and economic experts and institutions have acknowledged it as a "great achievement". While Modi and Uddhav have met each other at government functions, they haven't shared any political space since 2014.
