Amit Shah derides Oppn unity, Modi tells cadres shun negativity

Congress 'throttling' democracy, 'abusing' people's mandate, says PM Modi

The BJP Chief, who had arrived here yesterday on a two-day Odisha visit, didn't say anything on "Mission 120" while addressing a public gathering at Bhawanipatna in Kalahandi district but today he reiterated his claim which he had made during his last visit to the State in September a year ago. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader".

Speaking to party workers via a video interaction through his app, Modi said: "We want to improve the lives of the ordinary man".

"Amit Shah wanted to show how indifferent he and his party are to the commuters, students and office-goers of this city".

"What is the BJP celebrating - its string of failures in government, or the suicides by 13,000 farmers in Maharashtra, converting Mantralaya (the state government headquarters) into a "suicide point"?"

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has made a decision to celebrate the birth anniversaries of Mahatma Phule and Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar on a grand scale, throughout the country. All the opposition parties are continuously calling for unity to defeat the BJP.

He was apparently referring to the efforts being made by various parties like the TRS, the Trinamool Congress and the TDP to sew up a coalition to take on the Modi-led BJP in the next general elections.

Maharashtra Congress President Ashok Chavan attacked Shah for his comments during the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rally here this afternoon, saying that "the people of the country will no longer tolerate the lies and "jumla-baazi" in 2019". "However, the BJP did not even spare tea in committing its scams", Chavan said. "Though it is a BJP convention, national politics is at such a juncture that we could expect something on that from Amitji", said the BJP functionary.

He took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi and said, " Rahul baba you question our intentions.

On the rising petrol prices, Shah said the current prices were still lower than those during the UPA rule. The Bhima-Koregaon row, the Dharma Patil suicide and the latest Dalit atrocities law controversy could upset BJP's gameplan to sew up a broad caste alliance, said party watchers. Addressing a rally in Mumbai to mark the party's Foundation Day, Shah also targeted Congress President Rahul Gandhi for questioning the performance of Narendera Modi government at the Centre. "We are doing all that is possible for the government to control the prices of petrol and diesel".

"When Atal ji (former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee) founded the party in Mumbai 36 years ago, he had predicted that the "lotus" (BJP's symbol) will bloom", he said.
