"Today opposition to BJP is at its highest". Opponents can't imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a President, we elected a person of Dalit community.

Speaking about the four years of the BJP-led NDA government, Prime Minister Modi opined, "Ours is a government fully dedicated to the poor and this is also seen in the working of the various state governments of the BJP".

Shah made the remarks in the context of a dinner hosted by former Congress president and ex-UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi at her New Delhi residence for various Opposition leaders last month and the fact that several Opposition leaders have been meeting each other individually and collectively during the recent weeks.

"Today 20 states and almost 70% of the country's population is ruled by BJP".

Ananth Kumar, Parliamentary Affairs Minister, said, "BJP works for connecting people, Congress works for dividing people. This takes the total number of booth workers in each constituency to 7500", said Danve. The reason is not that we have made any mistake.

"BJP workers should spread the word about Modi government's works, and set the stage for 2019 Lok Sabha election".


Shah promises BJP will never look to scrap reservation, PM urges workers to deliver party's message of economic growth to poor and backward sections. "They are joining hands due to their fear for Modi", the BJP president said. He also appreciated the hard work of the party workers and credited them for the success of the party and riding up the ladder from "shunya" to "shikhar". And all the animals, be it the cats, snakes, mongoose, dog, cheetah and the lion, all take refuge on that tree to save themselves from getting washed away.

With the BJP celebrating its 38th foundation day, Modi said it has become the largest party due to the people's blessings and tireless efforts of its workers and also paid tributes to many of its late leaders and workers.

"During Congress rule, Pakistani terrorist would often kill our people and even beheaded our soldiers, but the government could do nothing".

He said that out of fear of the Modi wave, parties with different ideologies are coming together to contest elections. A senior BJP leader, who did not want to be named, said the mega convention had symbolic and contemporary political significance.

Highlighting the NDA's achievements, he said the BJP had provided a "clean, non-corrupt and all-inclusive" governments which the corrupt could not do for decades.

The Good Governance model of Prime Minister Narendra Modi encompasses these broad themes into simple takeaways, which have the potential of transforming India in the near future, he added.
