Low voter turnout led to by poll loss: Amit Shah
Shah dismissed Congress attempts to get the opposition parties together, saying it has lost polls in 11 states and some of these parties are in touch with him too.
Speaking at a program organised by a news channel, Shah dismissed Congress attempts to get the opposition parties together, saying it has lost polls in 11 states and some of these parties are in touch with him too.
“We take the outcome of these by-polls seriously. We will do an analysis. But is the Congress is rejoicing at this result even after losing its defeat then what can one say,” Shah said.
He emphasised that BJP does not introspect on a poll outcome in the shadow of a loss or in the excitement of a victory.
Shah has called Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to Delhi for a meeting on the results. At the conclave, the BJP President praised the Yogi government.
“BJP has nothing to fear even if SP-BSP strike an alliance. BJP’s rise in UP is everlasting. These two parties have joined hands as it is a question of their survival,” Shah said.
He compared Sonia Gandhi’s dinner for opposition parties to the grouping up of opposition against Modi just as it used to be “Indira versus all” once.
Asked about the TDP moving a no-confidence motion, Shah said the NDA has a strength of more than 300 in the Lok Sabha.
On Rahul Gandhi’s elevation to the post of Congress President, Shah said it was decided on the day Gandhi was born that he will occupy that post.
Shah defended his party on the issue of minorities, Ram temple issue, selling pakoras to earn a livelihood among others.
He declined to share the plans and roadmap to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections or the seat target set by his party.
