BJP to shower leaflets on Modi achievements

Shah finalised the party's resolutions to be passed in the two-day national executive meeting that will be inaugurated with his address later in the day. Slamming the Opposition, Shah said that the Opposition is frustrated by the fact that the poor of the nation are in support of BJP and Prime Minister Modi.

Shah, according to Javadekar, said the party was going to the state polls on a confident note, taking into account that the BJP had won 8,000 of the 10,000 seats in the civic polls held recently in Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chandigarh and Maharashtra.

"The party President hailed both decisions - conducting surgical strikes on terrorists across the border and implementing the demonetisation decision - as historic", the BJP leader said.

The party leaders will discuss and review the ground situation in the poll-bound states, BJP leaders said. He also said some people worry about lifestyle, but our priority is to make quality of life better for the poor and underprivileged. Bringing the message of what the government was doing for the poor.

"Hitting out at the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party for their "Khoon ki dalali" and "give us proof" comments respectively, Javadekar said, "'Khoon ki dalali' comment was a mean one and one minister even asked for proof.

The PM also strongly batted for transparency in political funding and called for consensus on the issue among political parties.

Besides the aerial campaign through leaflets, the party is also sending its "Prachar rath" in every assembly constituency to show the audio-visual programmes, showcasing the Modi government's initiatives towards development of India and Uttar Pradesh. The demonetisation exercise is a historic step, commerce minister Nirmala Sitharaman said after the resolution was passed. Though Shah told his partymen not be on the defensive about demonetisation, but go forth confidently and face the upcoming elections in Uttar Pradesh and four other states, he did not give any indication when the cash withdrawal restrictions would be eased further. The Prime Minister also spoke about transparency in political funding, and appealed to all parties to come on board to cleanse the system. Quoting Mr Jaitley, she said the objective of demonetisation was to contain black money which was an election promise of BJP during Lok Sabha elections.
