Golden age of BJP yet to come: Shah

Melba UnderwoodApr 16, 2017

He added that up until now analysts had said that the BJP was able to only beat national parties like Congress and fared badly when the party faced local opponents.

Sources also said along with other resolutions in the meeting, the BJP will deal with upcoming polls in seven states scheduled for 2018.

The Dalits constitute over 17 per cent of the state's electorate and have never been traditional voters of the saffron party, which is now wooing them aggressively.

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh, who has been credited for the party's success in the recent panahcyat polls in Western Odisha districts, said the Mahanandi water dispute is a non-issue and this was unnecessarily made an issue by the state government during rural polls.

Additionally, the BJP has identified 120 Lok Sabha seats it lost in 2014 but hopes to win in 2019. But we should not undermine the possibility of anti-incumbency as well. "After the results of the 2017 [Assembly] elections, again, it was claimed that the party has peaked", Mr. Prasad said.

Gaining strength in the eastern states, including West Bengal, is on the top of BJP president Amit Shah's to-do list now.

"I am noticing zeal and vigour in the BJP workers of Odisha". The party's gold era, he said, will coincide with India's golden era and it will emerge as a great nation in the world. "BJP's golden period should be associated with country's golden period", Shah said.

"We were weak in Odisha".

Expressing his readiness for further talks with Chief Minister Naveen Patinak, Singh said the water dispute will be resolved within no time if the Odisha government shows honest desire. Shah slammed Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in his address and said the state has lagged behind on key indices like power, toilets, clean drinking water.

BJP tried its best in Kerala and West Bengal just past year, but failed to manage any significant breakthrough. "Amit Shahji has asked the party workers to work harder and we will continue our work in the coming days as well", said Prasad.

"Shah will extensively tour the country till September".

"But the BJP is yet to be at its peak". But BJP is yet to reach its peak.

Earlier the Prime Minister held a roadshow on Saturday in the state capital.

As the Prime Minister's 9 km-long roadshow passed through the main road connecting the airport and the Raj Bhavan, the air was rent with the chants of "Modi".
