New Delhi | BJP president Amit Shah on Friday attacking the opposition parties said that those who are elated over BJP losing eight bypolls recently forget that his party has wrested 14 states from its rivals and that it rules in 20 out of the 29 states in the country.
भाजपा के कार्यकर्ताओं ने देश को दुनिया के सर्वोच्च स्थान पर बैठाने के लिए निरंतर परिश्रम किया है। आज हमारा सौभाग्य है कि देश का नेतृत्व दुनिया के सर्वाधिक लोकप्रिय नेता श्री नरेंद्र मोदी कर रहे हैं जिनके नेतृत्व में देश विश्वगुरु के पद पर आसीन होने की ओर अग्रसर है। pic.twitter.com/ztQkC6GuBJ

Speaking to the BJP workers in the Jaipur rural Parliamentary constituency, Shah said,”They (Congress) are on a high over the BJP’s recent losses in the bypolls. But they don’t realise that after 2014, we have wrested 14 states from them one after another. Good that we have this kind of rival.”
Taking a dig at the Congress party, the BJP leader said “The Congress party asks us about our achievements in the last three-four years, but we ask them what they did in the last 70 years and over three generations (of Nehru-Gandhi family),” he said, adding that in last four years, the Narendra Modi government achieved what “could not be done in the last 70 years”.
“Prime Minister Modi promised to bring electricity to all the 19,000 villages of the country that were deprived of it by 2019 but that has already been achieved in four years itself. Today there is electricity in every house, vaccination for every child and every mother, several insurance schemes and pension benefits for the elderly,” Mr. Shah said.
