BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday claimed that the saffron party would won at least 21 seats in Northeast in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
Charting out the Central government’s various development projects, Shah said that the BJP along with its allies would won at least 21 out of total 25 seats in the Northeast in 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
“Due to the policies of Congress, the Northeast region of the country was kept away from development. Their policy was divide and rule and our’s is ‘sabka sath, sabka vikas’. After Narendra Modi took over power, he took several initiatives for the development of the northeastern states. This is the reason we have been winning one after one elections,” he said.
Addressing party workers at Khanapara ground here at a booth level meeting, Shah said the Congress was not able to digest its continuous defeats in assembly polls and was thus disrupting the proceedings of Parliament.
“Despite our repeated appeals, they are not allowing Parliament to function. On one hand, they claim that they want discussion but on other hand they create ruckus and disrupt the proceedings,” he said.
Hitting out at the Congress for continuous disruption in Parliament, Shah alleged that it was running away discussing the Central government’s major budget announcements on health insurance scheme and steps taken up by it for welfare of farmers.
He also dared the Congress to move no-confidence motion against the Modi government, saying the ruling NDA was ready to face it as it had enough numbers and support to defeat the motion.
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his budget speech announced two major welfare schemes. One is health insurance scheme for 10 crore families and the other was guaranteeing farmers minimum support price of 1.5 times of production cost.
Shah said, “If Parliament functions then these issues would be debated. Fearing this, the Congress is not allowing Parliament to function. If they won’t allow Parliament to function then we will go to the public. We don’t nothing to fear.”
He challenged the Congress to go ahead with its no-confidence motion against the government. “We are ready to face it. End the disruption and debate. We have full majority. We have nothing to hide.
“Despite the fact that the Union Budget has been passed, Parliament is on because Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) wants the House to take up discussion on issues concerning common people. But the Congress does not want the House to function. They want only disruptions.”
Hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the way he solved the crisis in Doklam, Shah said,”It sent a message across the globe that no one would dare to touch our boundaries.
