BJP President Amit Shah has said that the party has the chance to form a government after the 2019 general elections, and that the Congress is “not ready for such an opportunity”.
Shah, the BJP’s top leader in Uttar Pradesh, said that his party’s “pragmatic approach” in 2019 elections would help the party in its next bid for power. “
The Congress is not ready and neither are we for a decision to be taken after 2019 polls,” he said, referring to the party’s stand on the proposed Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Shah, the BJP’s top leader in Uttar Pradesh, said that his party’s “pragmatic approach” in 2019 elections would help the party in its next bid for power.
“We will have to make a decision.
We will take our decisions only when we take them, he added.
He has not worked for the party since 2012,” Sharma said. “
Congress leader Shrikanth Sharma made a mistake in his statement, as he is a former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
He has not worked for the party since 2012,” Sharma said.
BJP leaders have been under pressure from the BJP-backed Shiv Sena in Uttar, where the party is contesting the state assembly elections, to form an alliance with the Sena and to make the 2019 elections a priority for them.
They have said that they will make a formal request to the Prime Minister to form such an alliance.
The BJP’s manifesto released last week included an “ambitious agenda” including “national rejuvenation”, “promoting national economic growth”, “improving social justice and equality”, “strengthening the economic foundation of the nation”, “ending corruption and social injustice”, “reducing poverty”, and “encouraging greater use of solar energy and cleaner energy”.
The BJP had previously made a bid for the 2019 assembly polls, but lost in a state-wide vote.
However, Shah has promised that the 2019 election will be “a major turning point” for the BJP, which has come to power on a wave of anti-corruption protests.
