Shah says BJP far from golden period

BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday dispelled overenthusiasm among leaders and workers over victories in Uttar Pradesh (UP) and Uttarakhand as he insisted that the party was yet to peak for achieving its “golden period”.

At the same time, Shah outlined the medium and long-term goals on the opening day of the BJP national executive meet through his call to cadres for a resolve to win the next round of elections in Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat and Karnataka “decisively”.

Briefing reporters on Shah’s inaugural address, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the party president recalled what he had said at the Allahabad conclave.

He quoted the BJP chief as having said that he had requested the party to go all out for a big victory in Assembly elections to five states of UP, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa and Manipur. And that happened in UP and Uttarakhand. 

“When we won in 2014, they said the BJP has reached its peak. The same was said in 2017. People say that this is the BJP’s golden period but I believe that the golden period will come when we win West Bengal, Kerala and Odisha,” Prasad quoted Shah as saying.

Shah is not content with 13 BJP chief ministers and four NDA chief ministers and wants to paint every state saffron, ruling from panchayat to Parliament, the Union minister stated.
He has also asked the national executive members to spend 15 days at the booth level.
