After Cliffhanger Rajya Sabha Poll, Amit Shah Firm on Achieving Mission 150

After Cliffhanger Rajya Sabha Poll, Amit Shah Firm on Achieving Mission 150”

Having taken the BJP to power in the North-eastern states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur, the BJP vice-president Prabhat Jha told EXPRESS that "Amit Shah has demonstrated how a party president should conduct and help percolate the ideology to the bottom of the pyramid in the party". Prime Minister Narendra Modi heaped praise on Shah saying the party has expanded its base in several areas and diligently worked towards nation building under his tenure.

Addressing the Bharatiya Janata Party's parliamentary party meeting, Modi said Shah had steered it to be the largest democratic political party in the world, reported IANS.

Pulling up BJP MPs for being absent from Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told them Thursday that their attendance in the House and performance would decide their renomination, including for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Only 23 out of the 56 members of the ruling BJP were present in the House. Modi was said to have asked the MPs why should the party have to issue a whip to ensure attendance. Those absent included ministers.

It was the first meeting of the BJP parliamentary party attended by Shah after being elected from Gujarat to the Rajya Sabha.

"And, I can easily predict that oppositions' strength will reduce to half after the polls", added Shah, who also completes his third consecutive year as the BJP's national president.

Modi said it was easy to run a political party while being in the Opposition but relatively hard when it was in power.

Shah spoke on the condition of the Congress party in Gujarat. However, two of these votes were declared invalid by the Election Commission, after the Congress complained that the two MLAs disclosed their choice to BJP leaders. The party is expected to mover the Gujarat High Court and if it fails will approach the Supreme Court, party sources said.
