  • Amit Shah blames 'vested political interests' for creating panic about reservations

The Modi government was well aware if discussion was held on the no-trust motion, it would have brought its "anti-poor, anti-farmers, pro-capitalists policies, corruption and bank scams to the fore and would have put it in the dock in the election year", Mayawati said.

The BJP president was referring to the two seats the BJP lost in the recent Uttar Pradesh bypolls.

"They can not accept the fact that the BJP which was once recognised as a party of Brahmins and Baniyas chose a dalit as president of the country when got the opportunity", he said.

Shah's speech, as well as the ongoing brainstorming within the BJP on simultaneous polls, gives an indication that the Maharashtra polls may be advanced from October 2019 to April-May 2019, to be held simultaneously with Lok Sabha elections.

"The countdown for 2019 (polls) has begun. Whenever there is a massive flood, all snakes, mongooses, cats, dogs, cheetahs, lions etc climb a huge tree, they fear rising water levels".

Sharma said, "The remarks made by Amit Shah are condemnable". Rahul baba you question our intentions. They say we will scrap reservations.

"Intoxicated by power, BJP leaders are taking the people of the country for fools..." In 10 days, Modi made a decision to send our jawans into Pakistan for a surgical strike.

The BJP had chartered 28 trains, with 11 of them terminating on WR and 17 on Central Railway (CR), said officials.

"In four years of rule, BJP has worked tirelessly for welfare of dalits, under-privileged, illiterates".

Shah's arrival in the city resulted in traffic snarls on the Western Express Highway last night, as 25,000 local BJP workers took out a three-kilometre-long rally - including 10,000 bikers and several vehicle drivers - to welcome him.
