BJP president Amit Shah met Yoga guru Ramdev, who is associated with the Patanjali group of companies, as part of his party's "contact for support" campaign, and shared the Modi government's achievements with him.

"I met yoga guru Swami Ramdev as part of 'Sampark for Samarthan' programme and informed him about the Narendra Modi-led government's achievements and public welfare policies in its four years of rule," Shah tweeted.

He (Modi) laid a vast network of roads across the country. Roads were built under his leadership without any political interference. Be it a BJP-governed state or not, he didn’t bother. The faster the pace, the faster the development. You can see it with your own eyes, the work that he has done.
Ramdev, Yoga Guru 
I believe that if we can get our message through to Ramdev, then through him we can get our message across to thousands of people. Ramdev has given us his support and his blessings, like he does to everyone. 
Amit Shah, BJP President

Following its government's fourth anniversary on 26 May, the BJP launched a mega public drive – 'Sampark for Samarthan' – announcing that its 4,000 functionaries will contact one lakh people, who are well-known names in their fields, to spread the word about its works in its tenure.

Shah will himself contact 50 persons, the party had said. Launching the exercise, he had met former Army chief Dalbir Singh Suhag and Subhash Kashyap on 29 May. He also met cricket legend Kapil Dev later.

Shah had earlier said that the campaign was aimed at informing people about various government initiatives, which have resulted in lifting people's living standards as a lot of work had been done to address the problems people faced in villages and to help the poor live better lives.
