The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday, 9 September, passed a resolution reaffirming the party's commitment to build a "New India" by 2022, and said the Opposition has neither a leader nor a policy, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the most popular leader in the country.

The political resolution was presented by the senior party leader and Home Minister Rajnath Singh at its ongoing national executive meet.

The BJP said the Opposition's plan to defeat the saffron party was a "day dream".

Briefing the media, Union Minister Prakash Javdekar said a lot of developmental work has been done in the last four years, and that a “New India” will by formed by 2022.

“This government has vision, passion and imagination, and the work of this government can be seen. By 2022, India will be free of terrorism, casteism, communalism and nobody will be homeless,” Javadekar said.

The party in its resolution took a dig at the Opposition, saying it has no agenda or policy, or strategy in place.

"The Opposition is frustrated and it neither has leader nor policy; its sole agenda is to stop Prime Minister Narendra Modi," Javadekar said.

He said Modi was the most popular leader in the country and even after four years in power, Modi's approval rating is more than 70 percent.

The minister said that BJP will win with an even bigger majority in 2019.
