Karnataka election: Complete list of BJP's star campaigners

Congress Allies Should Seek Apology From Amit Shah Bihar BJP Chief

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah announced on Saturday that the saffron party will get rid of the Congress' parivarvad and usher in vikasvad in Rae Bareli.

Shah also attacked Congress over the acquittal of Swami Aseemanand in the Mecca Masjid blast case earlier this week.

"The Congress should apologise for the term "saffron terrorism".

The poster in the backdrop of the dais had pictures of Amit Shah, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and UP BJP Chief Mahendra Nath Pandey but there was no mention of PM Modi at all, rather unusual when it came to political event like this in Congress stronghold.

The BJP took its fight against the Congress to the Gandhi family's pocket borough in Rae Bareli, the Lok Sabha constituency of former Congress president Sonia Gandhi, with Shah saying his party would rid of "parivarvad" and take it on the path of development.


The BJP chief said, "I have just returned from Karnataka, the mood is clearly in the favour of BJP", referring to his two-day visit to Karnataka that started on 12 April.

"The grand old party will never apologise to the Hindu community because of its vote bank politics", Shah said. "We will develop it as an ideal constituency and a model district", he added. Shah asked the gathering.

The BJP President also claimed that the writing on the wall was loud and clear that in 2019, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government will be formed yet again under the leadership of Modi.

Though the BJP swept UP in the 2014 general election, the BJP lost both Rae Bareli and Amethi to the Congress.

Almost two weeks after BJP national president, Amit Shah asserted that he was a Hindu Vaishnav, his community origins are once again the subject of debate in the poll discourse in Karnataka.
