During the Gujarat assembly proceedings, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah lashed out at the Congress, saying that elections were won by winning the hearts and not by creating a ruckus in the Assembly – he is fresh off a major win in the assembly elections with his party forming the government in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur.

“Elections were won not by creating a ruckus in the House but by winning people’s hearts,” he said according to PTI. As Shah entered the assembly, he was welcomed by his party members, who were thumping desks and raising slogans like “Amit Bhai Aage Badho, hum tumhare Saath hai.” (Amit brother, you walk ahead, we are with you).

In his speech, Shah asserted that BJP will win the upcoming assembly polls scheduled later this year. During an hour-long speech, Shah said affirmed that the BJP will win the 2017 polls with more than 150 seats. In connection with the resolution brought by BJP’s Ketan Inamdar, he urged the state government to take the BJP’s development agenda forward.

While talking about the development model on hunger, he said,”Our hunger for development is still intact. This journey for development will continue even after 2017 and 2019.”

“Before 1995, the people of Gujarat were suffering due to large-scale corruption, lawlessness, and shortage of electricity. After Narendra Modi took over in 2001, we transformed this state. Now, the entire world talks about Gujarat model,” he said.

Shah had also met Congress leader Vaghela who termed the one-hour meeting with Shah as a “courtesy call”

When Vaghela was asked in connection of the upcoming state polls,”There were no indications of early polls, as I understand, but nothing can be said of these RSS people.”

Being an MLA, Shah has to mark his attendance once in six months. He represents Naranpura constituency in Ahmedabad. Shah was received by Vijay Rupani in the second half of the first session, along with other cabinet ministers. Shah was also accompanied by wife after the recess. Congress MLAs were suspended from attending the first session by Speaker Ramanlal for protesting over MB Shah commission report.
