Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Amit Shah speaking at the ABP News event ‘Shikhar Sammelan’ today said that as the chief of the party he would like to familiarise everyone with its achievements. He said that the government managed to end the politics based on caste, religion, and discrimination. The NDA government is of the poor people and will keep working to promote their welfare. And now, 3 years on, he said that the government has been able to achieve its objectives under the able leadership of PM Narendra Modi.
The BJP president said that the NDA government has also finished the policy of appeasement. And as far as economic development is concerned, the government is working for the overall welfare of the people across the country. Amongst the top achievements listed by Amit Shah was the progress made in the effort to supply electricity in each and every village of the country.
Shah added that NDA govt’s 3 years in office have been momentous. He added that PM Modi had promised to provide greater security on the borders and this led to something that was till then unimaginable – the surgical strike was launched, something that was never done before. Shah said, “This is the first government to show it firmly stands with our soldiers.”
Shah said that NDA government has also removed black money from elections. Demonetisation helped money to go back to banks.
Taking a dig at the opposition, Shah said the NDA government was achieving a lot but the other parties will not admit it. However, he added, the “Public knows and that is why it is voting for the BJP.”
