Guj polls a chance to make Congress invisible, says Amit Shah
BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday urged his party cadre in Gujarat to look at forthcoming Assembly polls in the state as an opportunity to uproot Congress and “throw it away”.

“The Congress dubbed us worthless. Now we have to ensure that they become invisible. This is an opportunity to uproot it,” Shah said while addressing party cadres on the second day of two-day BJP state executive committee meet held in temple town of Somnath.

Defining ruling party as “invincible”, Shah said that BJP today ruled in 17 states of the country, covering almost 72 per cent of the national geography. “The BJP was criticized and termed as a party of the affluent and limited to urban areas. The party that had 10 members once, today has over 10 crore members. For last three years, BJP has won everywhere it has contested,” Shah added.

He also urged the party workers to continue the development journey. “You should create an atmosphere so that Narendra Modi does not have to rush down to Gujarat.”

Shah, who arrived in the temple town to attend the two-day party meet on the last day, attended religious ceremony at the Lord Somnath Mahadev temple. He also had a closed door meeting with the top BJP leaders in the state regarding the party strategy for upcoming state assembly elections. The party’s executive meet had on its first day resolved to fulfill the prime minister’s target of winning 150 plus seats in the state assembly.
