India's federal structure to be strengthened after Modi becomes PM: Shah
BJP general secretary and Naranpura MLA Amit Shah today said after Narendra Modi becomes the next Prime Minister, the country's federal structure will be strengthened.
During his speech at a special session of the Assembly convened to give farewell to outgoing Chief Minister Mr Modi, he said if a Chief Minister becomes the PM, it will definitely benefit the country's federal system.
During the Congress-led UPA regime, the BJP had accused the Centre of encroaching upon powers of the states.
Mr Shah said the verdict of the Lok Sabha polls where the BJP got 283 seats in an emphatic win, reflects support of the people to development works done by the Narendra Modi government in Gujarat.
He said the verdict reflects the people's support to Mr Modi's good governance as under his leadership during the last 12 years fruits of development reached where there was no development earlier.
Mr Shah, who is credited with a landslide victory of the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, said the nation will once again realise that trust put on a Gujarati can never go to waste.
