Setting the tone for the 2019 parliamentary election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi coined a new slogan, ‘Ajay Bharat, Atal BJP’, highlighting his party’s commitment to its core values and the country’s progress and forward march under its rule.
Delivering valedictory address at the two-day National Executive meetings of the BJP, concluded in New Delhi, this evening, he said the new slogan, `Ajay Bharat, Atal BJP’, means an India which is victorious and cannot be subjugated by anyone and a party which is committed to its principles.
Modi declared that he don’t see a challenge anywhere in 2019 polls. Launching a scathing attack on the opposition’s proposed `Mahagathabandhan’, Prime Minister said those who cannot look into each other’s eyes are forced to embrace against the BJP. He said their leadership is unknown, their police is unclear and their intention is corrupt.
He said that no one, not even smaller parties, was ready to accept the leadership of the Congress in such an alliance. Describing his vision for the country, the prime minister said, “I want the country to be affluent, but its bedrock should be simplicity.”
He asserted that the Opposition is incapable of challenging the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections because it’s fighting on lies and not issues. “We are ready to fight on neeti (policies) but we don’t know how to fight on lies”, he added.
Briefing Prime Minister’s speach to the media, union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, “PM Modi used three powerful words to describe Mahagathbandhan: netritva ka pata nahi, neeti aspashth, neeyat brasht (absent leadership, unclear policy and corrupt intent).”
Earlier, the BJP projected the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in 2019 as a battle between a “daydreaming” opposition and its alliance whose leader Narendra Modi has an “approval rating” of over 70% and is set to build a “new India” by 2022.
