Opposition parties joining hands fearing Modi: Amit Shah

"BJP's golden period will come when we will have governments in West Bengal and Odisha and retain power in 2019 with absolute majority", said Shah exhorting partymen to prepare for the next Lok Sabha polls. Referring to Shah's comments that the Opposition parties unity efforts are akin to "snakes, mongooses, cats, dogs, leopards and lions" coming together during a natural calamity like floods, the Congress leader said the BJP leader should first look at the track record of his own great leaders in 1975 "who formed a collective opposition against Congress rule".

He added that the party's history, its thought and its decision-making process show that "it is the only fully democratic party", without any dynasty, casteism and so on.

"People have taken us to this level and now we have to live for them", he said.

BJP's Maharashtra president Raosaheb Danve said special arrangements have been made to bring the party workers to Mumbai in trains, buses and jeeps. In a tweet message he said that he bows to all BJP Karyakartas on the special occasion of the Party's Sthapana Diwas.

"In the fear of being swept by the flood named Modi, snakes, mongooses, cats and dogs have come together to fight the elections", the BJP president said.

"It is due to this that an atmosphere of violent opposition against the BJP is being created", he said while asking party workers not to fall in the opposition's trap of divisive agenda. "They should not feel bad about what I said", Shah remarked.Earlier, while addressing the mega rally of BJP workers on the Foundation Day of the party, the BJP president said his party would never allow the revocation of reservation for the Schedule Castes and the Schedule Tribes. The reason is not that we have made any mistake.

"The countdown for 2019 has begun".

He said the technology be used for empowerment of people but asked the party workers to be active on social media to check circulation of fake content and rumours.
