BJP will win 27 seats in Goa Assembly elections, claims Amit Shah
BJP’s national president Amit Shah has said that his party would rule in Goa by winning an impressive 27 seats. Plus, he also focused on BJP’s need for winning all the five state Assembly elections in order to ensure victory at the centre in the 2019 Lok Sabha poll. Shah made the announcement during a booth level party workers’ meeting that was held at Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium. The meeting was scheduled to start off BJP’s election campaign for the 2017 Goa Assembly Elections. Shah also expressed his confidence in Goa leading the Vijay Rath to win the Parliament by being victories at Goa for the second consecutive time.
Stating that BJP has been re-elected in some states because the party believes in the politics of performance, Shah said, “In 2012, we won 21 seats, but every worker before leaving this convention should determine the target of 27 seats and a clear majority for the Bharatiya Janata Party (in the assembly elections).” Taking a dig at the Congress party, he said that whenever Congress party has ruled the state, they have provided a corrupt government to the people of Goa. “The BJP workers will have to go and inform the people of Goa that only under the leadership of our leaders, Goa can have a corruption-free government,” he added.
Calling upon the workers to dedicate their time for preparations for the elections, Shah said, “The next six months are very crucial for the BJP and the people of the state. I request every one of you to dedicate a part of your time to the work of the party and reach out to every citizen with the message of BJP.”
Meanwhile, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, in a subtle criticism of the pre-poll surveys, said, “I have come to realise that the results of the surveys are dependent on who has conducted the survey.”
