Visionaries spend the present preparing for the future. BJP’s principal poll campaigner Amit Shah is doing just that like a true visionary. Even as the general election is around a year away, Shah is busy crisscrossing the country to ensure a third term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Centre.
Braving the scorching Sun, Shah is meeting party leaders across the country and attending numerous public rallies in which he is pitching for a strong government, under the able leadership of Prime Minister Modi, that will have a clear, absolute mandate with over 300 seats.
While meetings with the local leaders are more to do with strengthening the organisation and weaving a winning strategy; in the public rallies, Shah highlights the sea change that has taken place in the country under the nine-year of Modi rule and how Modi has done more good for the Poor in nine years than the combination of the four-generation Congress regime. The nation’s march towards progress is all-encompassing now.
On the expected lines, Congress and its former MP Rahul Gandhi are at the receiving end. As a seasoned campaigner, Shah highlights how poverty has been perpetuated in the country during the four-generation of the Congress government.
At a rally in Gujarat’s Patan, Shah lambasted Rahul Gandhi saying, “Rahul Baba is going abroad on a vacation to escape the summer heat. He keeps criticising the country there. I like to suggest Rahul Gandhi learn from his ancestors.”
Speaking at a rally at Nanded in Maharashtra on Saturday as a part of BJP’s outreach programme on the completion of nine years of the Modi Ji-led NDA government, Shah said the Poor never got their basic needs such as housing units, toilets, cooking gas and others during the reign of the Gandhi family.
On Sunday, in Tamil Nadu, Shah took a jibe at the Stalin government, highlighting the Modi government’s bounty for the state. The abject failure of the DMK-Congress government in the state received sharp criticism from the BJP leader.
“The DMK was part of the UPA government, however, in different exams, the youth of Tamil Nadu didn’t have the option to take exams in Tamil. Now, however, All India Services, CAPF and NEET examinations can be taken in the Tamil language,” he said in Vellore.
In Vizag also, Shah highlighted the lapses of the Congress government and showcased how the Modi government has brought fundamental changes for the betterment of society.
The BJP-led NDA had bagged 303 out of the 542 Lok Sabha seats in 2019. Shah is confident that in the 2024 general election also, the NDA would secure more than 300 seats, paving the way for a third-term Modi government in the Centre.
Supporters are also responding to his clarion call. At Nanded, he asked supporters, “Do you want Narendra Modi Ji or Rahul Gandhi as the Prime Minister?” Thousands of supporters who attended the rally roared back with “Modi, Modi” chanting.
