The resolution heaped praise on the Modi government's performance and highlighted its pro-farmer and pro-poor works, besides its "foreign policy successes". Modi said delivery systems have to improve, focus should be on transition towards digital mode of payments and push for electoral reforms, including simultaneous Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.

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.

BJP sources said Modi also spoke about the positive mood among people reflected, the clean sweep by the BJP in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand in the recently held assembly elections.

The BJP is also likely to face anti-incumbency as it has been in power in the state for over 22 years.

BJP's Amit Shah started addressing the meeting, and it was finished by Prime Minister. Mr Jaitley said, during the last three years of NDA rule, there is no charge of corruption on the government and an honest dispensation under the leadership of Mr Modi is functioning. Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray, Former Punjab Chief Minister and Akali stalwart Prakash Singh Badal, Union Minister and LJP Chief Ram Vilas Paswan were among those who attended the meeting.

Speaking on the relationship with the Shiv Sena, Jaitley said, "Shiv Sena is the oldest BJP ally". While Modi and Uddhav have met each other at government functions, they haven't shared any political space since 2014.

He asked party MPs to claim credit for the government's achievements, saying they will be its face when it fights the next elections.

"India is only economy which can achieve double digit growth".
