BJP here to stay for 50 years says Amit Shah
We have not come to power to stay for one or two terms. The BJP is here to stay for the next 50 years, the party's national president Amit Shah said.
Addressing leaders at Madhya Pradesh, Shah said, "We have not come to power for 5-10 years, but at least 50 years. We should move forward with the conviction that in the next 40-50 years we have to bring about major changes in the country through the medium of power."
He asked state BJP leaders to "target Congress leaders in elections" and ensure that "Jyotiraditya Scindia and Kamal Nath" are defeated in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
He warned of strict action against BJP MLAs who are allegedly helping the two Congress leaders win in polls.
He called upon workers to ensure that the party is present in every polling booth, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Kamrup to Kutch. "We have a majority government at the Centre with 330 MPs, and 1,387 MLAs in different states. Some feel the party is at its peak, but dedicated workers feel we have long way to go," he also said.
