BJP president Amit Shah took on Congress president Sonia Gandhi over her comment that the saffron party came to power by making false promises.

Addressing party workers here today, BJP president Amit Shah said the Narendra Modi government would fulfil all its poll promises before seeking another mandate.

"Yesterday, I saw Sonia Gandhi's speech. The Congress president said that some people came to power by making false promises. I would like to tell the Congress president that it has not been even 90 days since we came to power. All our promises will be fulfilled. You don't worry," he said.

The NDA government would fulfil its election manifesto before going to the elections next time, Shah said.

"But I would like to ask you (Congress president). You came to power saying that prices will be controlled within 100 days. Your were in power for ten years. What happened to the issues of controlling prices," Shah asked.

Congress should stop giving advise to others and instead look within, Shah said, adding that that it would face the wrath of people if it failed to do so. The Congress rule was marked by bad governance and corruption, he alleged.

The Narendra Modi government had taken many concrete pro-development steps in its first few days, the BJP chief claimed.
