Amit Shah calls on BJP party workers to create Congress-free Maharashtra
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah today called on his party workers to create a Congress-free Maharashtra.
"For the past 15 years, we have witnessed many scams here due to the Congress. Now we have to make a Congress-free Maharashtra and it is you people, the workers, who have to defeat the Congress," said Shah.
"BJP workers should be angry about all the scams created by Congress here. Till the Congress is in power in Maharashtra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's slogan of 'Congress-free India' won't come true," he added.
Shah further said that he hoped that BJP would come to power in Maharashtra to set things right again.
"I have asked god that in the state of Maharashtra, whose administrative skills were, at one point of time, applauded all over the country, where nobody could dare to raise a finger on a single politician, and where the cooperative movement had shown a new direction to the whole country, the BJP comes to power," Shah said.
Shah will chalk out the BJP's strategy for the upcoming Assembly polls in Maharashtra during his visit.
Shah, who arrived in Mumbai for the first time following his elevation to the position of party chief, will interact with party workers and boost their morale. BJP leaders in Maharashtra are hopeful that Shah's visit will build up confidence amongst the party cadres.
The mood in the BJP camp is upbeat following its good show in the Lok Sabha elections and it hopes to win more seats with the Shiv Sena, its ally, in the State Assembly polls.
