On the first day of the BJP’s National Executive in Allahabad, Party President Amit Shah raised the issue of lack of governance and the backwardness of Uttar Pradesh.
Shaw was speaking at the two day national executive meet of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Allahabad.
In his inaugural address, Shah said that there is an atmosphere of violence prevailing in UP and cited the recent Mathura and Kairana incidents while attacking SP govt.
“Governance in UP is on a decline. Violence in Mathura & exodus of Hindus from Kairana shows the poor law & order in the state,” said Ravi Shankar Prasad quoting Amit Shah.
Addressing office bearers on Sunday Shah said that Narendra Modi leadership at centre has given decisive leadership to NDA government in last two years.
Countering Congress, Shah said Narendra Modi leadership at centre has given decisive leadership to NDA govt in last two years.
“There is no corruption against the present government. However, 10 years of Congress was full of corruption. Since Modi government came to power, India’s growth rate has increased from 5.4 % to 7.6 %,” said Amit Shah as per Ravi Shankar Prasad.
The national executive meet is likely to set the stage for BJP’s battle for the largest legislative representing state of the country that has sent maximum number of Prime Ministers including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Posters saying ‘Mission 265 Plus’ have been pasted on Allahabad streets preparing workers to aim for simple majority the 403-strong Uttar Pradesh assembly. Now, BJP has less than 50 MLAs in the Assembly.
Keeping UP polls in mind, BJP have brought in new faces to national executive. Former Odisha CM Giridhar Gamang, senior leader KV Singh Deo , Assam BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma and former Uttarakhand CM Vijay Bahuguna have also been inducted into the national executive.
The two-day conclave will conclude on June 13, followed by a rally by PM Modi.
