In the battle for Madhya Pradesh 2018, BJP president Amit Shah while addressing party workers urged them to work hard so that the party is able to win over 200 seats in the 230 member Madhya Pradesh assembly . The polling for the 230-member Assembly in the BJP-ruled state will be held on November 28.
Speaking at a party workers’ convention at Hoshangabad in the state, Shah said, “The party can form the government with less than 200 seats, but we need to cross the 200-mark because our workers in West Bengal, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are looking towards Madhya Pradesh.”
The saffron party currently has 166 MLAs in Madhya Pradesh.
Shah said the victories in the upcoming Assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh should be so massive that they create a storm, which would turn into a “tsunami” in 2019.
“This tsunami would cover the entire country, including West Bengal, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu and Kerala,” he added.
“The party has witnessed success due to the sacrifices of several workers and leaders in the last 50 years. We are lucky, but we also have a responsibility. After we win the 2018 Assembly elections and the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, we will have the responsibility of ensuring victory for the party from panchayat to Parliament for the next 50 years,” Shah said.
