Addressing a press conference at the BJP National Executive Meet, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman briefed the media on party president Amit Shah’s speech to the members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Speaking to the media, Sitharaman said that Shah has urged party workers not to be complacent because of the continuous electoral successes since 2014 and to reach out to the people with a clear-cut message that BJP was not at all worried about the opposition ganging up against the party.

Shah called the united opposition an ‘opposition of lies and falsehood’ and accused Congress of aligning with forces that want to “break” India while his party was focused on “making” India.

Shah raked up many issues including that of NRC, Urban Naxals and the ‘Mahagathbandan’ for the 2019 polls.
