Saffron brigade rides into town for rally, may disrupt life today

Saffron brigade rides into town for rally, may disrupt life today

The BJP chief's address was aimed at boosting the morale of party workers, who may be slightly confused over attacks on the party from various social and political quarters. Only a 'vatvriksha (banyan tree) survives and snakes, mongoose, dogs, cats and other animals climb out to save themselves from the rising waters.

Shah also alleged that almost 14 BJP activists and leaders have been brutally killed in Odisha in the last one and half years and their killers are moving scot-free as the BJD Government is shielding them. The Prime Minister opined that having been in the Opposition, the BJP knows what issues the people face and now, having been in Government we should work towards those solutions.

Noting that the party has announced "Gram Swaraj Abhiyan" between April 14 and May 5, he asked BJP law-makers to ensure total implementation of seven welfare schemes of his government in villages, especially the ones with population of over a thousand, sources said.

"BJP works to connect people while the Congress works to divide them".

Citing electoral wins in the North-East, Shah said Modi's popularity has not diminished.

The session has witnessed very little business due to continuous disruption over various demands by opposition and other parties.

Members of the K-pop group, meanwhile, were pretty relieved by the North Korean audience and Kim's reception to their performance. The concert highlights the thawing ties between the rivals after years of friction over the North's nuclear program.

The BJP, which was long considered a "Brahmin-Baniya" party, made a Dalit India's president when it got its first chance to elect a person of its choice for the top constitutional position. It is a strength of BJP that affects opponents.

Earlier, expressing confidence about the BJP-led NDA's return to power in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Shah said, "Today, Modi is the most popular leader in the world".

Shah's remarks at a press conference in Mumbai an hour after the party's massive rally on their 38th foundation day, points to likelihood of the saffron alliance in 2019 elections, even though the Sena leadership is yet to comment on the issue. "Those who spread lies cannot digest how BJP can have so many Dalit MPs, SC/ST MLAs and MPs and so an environment of opposition is being created towards BJP", Modi said.

Shah also targeted Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Nationalist Congress Party president Sharad Pawar, saying they were spreading lies and questioning the ruling government.

Criticising Shah for questioning the contribution of the Nehru-Gandhi family to the nation, Chavan said that Nehru was imprisoned several times during the freedom struggle while Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi laid down their lives to uphold the sovereignty of the nation.

Shah answered and said that the people of the country are questioning on Congress' rule of four generations. "This event changed the way the world looks at India".
