Tuesday, 26 Sep, 2017

BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday took stock of the party's performance at its national executive meeting that will conclude with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address, in which he is expected to counter the Opposition's criticism of the state of the economy.

According to sources, Mr. Shah will review the progress of various organisational programmes suggested by him during his last visit to the State in August. "We hold the country first and party as secondary", he said.

He reiterated that Ram Nath Kovind could become President, M Venkaiah Naidu Vice President and Modi Prime Minister due to their work and not because of family connections. "I have no relatives (to benefit)", the PM said. He further said that today at 6:30 pm PM Narendra Modi will make an announcement of a big scheme.

Meanwhile BJP, with its thirteen Chief Ministers, 1400 legislators, 280 Parliamentarians - in all around 2,500 delegates, will be holding a National Executive committee meeting at Delhi's Talkatora Stadium on Monday.

"PM said sometimes Opposition uses harsh words when there is no specific allegation; harsh language can not be a substitute for substantive charge", Jaitley said.

In July, Trump was accused of inciting violence against journalists after retweeting a gif in which he body slammed a CNN avatar. The White House issued no immediate comment, and Trump aides have said in the past that his tweets "speak for themselves".

"When opposition was in government, power was a means of enjoyment for it".

BJP general secretary Bhupendra Yadav said the party has also dedicated the year to the "welfare of the poor" and the government has taken various initiatives on this front while curbing corruption. Modi assured that the fight against terrorism as well as corruption will continue, Jaitley added.

Amit Shah also mentioned about Sushma Swaraj and her recent expose of Pakistan at the United Nation General Assembly (UNGA) where the External Affairs Minister said that India produced institutions like IITs, IIMs while Pakistan have nurtured and harboured terror organisations like JeM, LeT, Hizbul Mujahideen and others.

He said the Prime Minister has asked every department to resolve the GST-related issues and giving his own instance Gadkari said shipping and finance departments had many problems but we have resolved it by going into every detail.
