BJP Meeting Eyes Elections, From Panchayat To Parliament: 10 Points

While lauding BJP's impressive performance in these two states and the party's success in forming governments in Goa and Manipur, Shah also emphasised that this is not the time for the party workers to become laidback. "Obviously, we have to keep organising public-contact programmes throughout the year", Pathak said.

According to Prasad, Amit Shah said that opposition parties were looking for excuses for their defeat and questioning electronic voting machines was disrespectful and defaming the Election Commission.

In his inaugural address at the national executive meeting here, Shah said BJP's historic victory in UP has changed the definition of a big win, as before this analysts would consider a 2/3 majority as a big margin. "After the results of the 2017 [Assembly] elections, again, it was claimed that the party has peaked", Mr. Prasad said. Minister Prasad said that BJP chief Amit Shah will spend time at the booth-level for 95 days by September. The Uttar Pradesh win broke that myth, Shah said, adding that the victory clearly proved that people are firmly with the BJP.

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. Whoever is committed to the leadership of Modi and Amit Shah are welcome. This only will bring BJP's "golden era".

"I am noticing zeal and vigour in the BJP workers of Odisha". He accused ruling BJD activists of being behind the incident and said that the party's leaders were anxious over BJP's surge in Odisha.

Shah had held discussions with party office-bearers to set the meeting agenda. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik explained that he would not be meeting the PM because he was visiting the state for "political work".

Modi, who was clad in all white, beamed and waved at the people gathered on both sides of the road for a glimpse with lotus flowers in their hands.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was given a grand welcome when he landed at the Biju Patnaik International Airport. He also paid floral tributes to the freedom fighters and illustrious sons of the soil on his way to the Raj Bhavan.

13 chief ministers of the party, the most BJP has ever had, were also in the audience.
