The BJP on Saturday took on the Opposition and the grand alliance head on during a news briefing following the National Executive Meeting. The Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad addressed a news briefing on PM Narendra Modi’s address at the National Executive Meeting on Sunday. The Union Minister said that during his speech, PM Modi gave two slogans - “Ajay Bharat and Atal Bhajpa,” paying his tribute to the former Prime Minister, late Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
The Union Law Minister then went on to say during his speech PM Modi set the tone for 2019 General Assembly elections.
PM Modi said that the BJP is not hungry for power as it is working for people. He said that “BJP is not arrogant and that power is an instrument of change for us.”
“We don’t seek power only to sit on chair. But, we see power to go and work for the people and to empower them. We don’t see any challenge in reference to 2019 elections,” said the Prime Minister.
While launching an uncompromising attack on the Congress, the Prime Minister said that the NDA’s 48 months trumps over the 48 years of Congress.
“Those who were failure in government were also a failure as opposition. The Congress worked for 48 years, and we worked for 48 months. If they will ask question, we will also ask firm questions,” said PM Modi.
“They always lie in front of people. But, we will fight with dignity against falsehood and lie. With facts, we will expose their lies,” he added.
While taking on the Mahagathbandhan, the PM said the grand alliance is the biggest vindication of BJP rule’s success.
“Those people who won’t see each other and can’t walk with each other, they are forced to hug each other and this happened because of BJP’s success,” said PM Modi.
While speaking about the dissent within the Mahagathbandhan and the lack of leadership, the PM said, “No one is ready to accept the Congress and there are many parties who are accepting that the Congress is not capable.”
“The Mahagathbandhan doesn’t have any leader nor any police and we have a leader, party workers’ support and people’s faith,” he added.
The Prime Minister also used three terms to describe the Mahagathbandhan - “Netritva ka thikana nahi (lack of leadership), neeti aspasht (unclear policy) and neeyat bhrasht (corrupt intention).”
The PM during his speech also said that the BJP wants “development and equality with humanity.”
PM while speaking about 2019, talked about the need to win in very polling booth and also emphasised on social media campaigning.
