Amit Shah ridicules Opposition unity, likens them to 'dogs and bitches'
Apr 09, 2018, 00:53
While Amit Shah addressed a massive workers' conclave, the prime minister directly interacted with 734 district party presidents and other workers through the Narendra Modi app.
Speaking at a press conference after the rally, Shah also made overtures to the BJP's bitter ally, Shiv Sena, which has resolved to contest the next election on its own strength.
On Friday, BJP national president Amit Shah had launched a scathing attack on Opposition parties by making stinging comments as he equated them to "snakes", "mongoose", "dogs" and "cats".
With the rally, Shah sounded off the bugle for the 2019 polls in a distinctly electoral speech that targeted the Opposition parties and reiterated the BJP's commitment to Dalits, the poor, the backward and farmers. "Though the sane public is repeatedly disowning them before the Lok Sabha elections". Attempts are being made for opposition unity. Only a 'vatvriksha (banyan tree) survives and snakes, mongoose, dogs, cats and other animals climb to save themselves from the rising waters. However, after this, Shah said that the golden period of the BJP is yet to come.
Citing electoral wins in the North-East, Shah said Modi's popularity has not diminished. BJP has lost most number of workers in this country. The BJP will never scrap reservations, and not just that, it will never let you touch reservations either. "He (Rahul) is the first leader I have seen who distributed candies after his party forfeited deposit in the polls".
Targeting Gandhi and his party, Shah said it was four generations of the Congress that need to give explanations to the country.
He appealed to the party workers to continue their zeal for all-round development of the state, and urged the karyakartas to reach the un-reached and share information about all the schemes of the BJP government. "Though there were ticket checkers in the train, the activists, many of whom were travelling ticketless, refused to pay fine", said a commuter.
Shah's arrival in the city resulted in traffic snarls on the Western Express Highway last night, as 25,000 local BJP workers took out a three-kilometre-long rally - including 10,000 bikers and several vehicle drivers - to welcome him.
Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis evoked Bal Thackeray, as he started his address by remembering BJP ideologues and stalwarts.
The rally led to several traffic snarls on the Western Express Highway.
