PM Modi interacts with workers on BJP's foundation day

Leader of Opposition in the Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir today slammed the BJP national leaders Prime Minister Narendra Modi and national party president Amit Shah for resorting to "cheap political gimmicks of caste and sentiments" since they lost credibility with an earlier campaign of Ram Mandir.

During the live video interaction, via Narendra Modi App, the Prime Minister highlighted the work of individual party members and intiatives taken by them.

He said party believes in diversity, unique culture of the country and above all the strengths of 125 crore Indians. He said, it is party's commitment that it will continue to devote itself towards India's transformation.

Lashing out at the government for not allowing the opposition voice to be heard in Parliament, the TMC on Friday accused the Modi dispensation of instigating the AIADMK to disrupt proceedings. "In the BJP there are no divisions, no dynasty politics and no I versus you".

"It is due to this that an atmosphere of violent opposition against the BJP is being created", he said while asking party workers not to fall in the opposition's trap of divisive agenda.

"We are living in a time when the Opposition to BJP is at its highest".

Similarly, Modi specifically made a reference to Anguri Devi, a party worker from the New Delhi constituency.

He will also take queries from them. "So it is our national duty not to cede this space to them", he said.

As the BJP has also supported the cause during the bifurcation of the State it should initiate immediate steps in fulfilling the demand, he said. She wanted the Prime Minister to share Mantras with the BJP workers, whom she called Election Warriors, just like the Prime Minister did for Exam Warriors.

"The NDA family is getting "Jeet after Jeet" (victory after victory), which is forcing the other parties to spread "Jhooth after Jhooth" (lies after lies)".

Narrating his vision for "New India" by 2022, Modi urged BJP cadres to redouble their efforts to achieve the target. Addressing media in Lucknow on the occasion of BJP's sthapna diwas, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stressed that the government is working hard to make sure that benefits of centre's schemes reach the last man standing in the queue. "Their only aim is to defeat Modi". He requested them to devote themselves towards serving society and impacting the lives of people around them.
