Amit Shah: Accept challenge of a combined Opposition

Asserting that the BJP will break the "myth" that it can not return to power at the centre, its president Amit Shah said that the party will emerge stronger in the 2019 polls compared to the last general election.

He also questioned silence of Goa Forward Party (GFP), an alliance partner in the BJP-led government in the state, over the issue. Some say if BJP comes to power at the Centre, it can not repeat its feat in the next elections. In 2017, we had got the people's mandate to form government, but Mr. Shah usurped it. RSS pracharaks holding the posts of organisational secretaries at state level were also present at the day-long conclave.

The BJP leader said that India, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership, was being looked at in a new light after the surgical strikes of 2016.

He said that BJP would win the Karnataka elections and that it was a good feeling that it was now turning to be the BJP versus all other parties in the country as his party is winning one elections after another.

Following the statement, none of the BJP leaders from Goa express views of Goa. "We have to raise a high building", he quoted the party president as saying.
