Bhopal: BJP president Amit Shah has said that the party has not come to power for a mere five or 10 years but at least 50 years and called upon his party workers to strengthen the organisation and take it to every part of the country. "Today, we have a majority government at the Centre with 330 MPs, and also have 1,387 MLAs in different states. The party appears to be at its peak… but dedicated workers feel we have a long way ahead," Shah said at at a meeting with party men.
"We have not come to power for five-10 years, but at least 50 years. We should move forward with a conviction that in 40-50 years, we have to bring major changes in the country through the medium of power," Shah said. He was addressing the Madhya Pradesh BJP's Core Group members, office bearers, MPs, MLAs and district chiefs, among others, at the party headquarters here as part of his 110-day nationwide tour.
"Today the BJP has become a party of 12 crore members because of many stalwarts who have dedicated their lives in building and strengthening the organisation," said Shah.
"We have to ensure that no place in the country is left where we don't have our flag. For this, we have to strengthen the organisation further," Shah said.
"Character is the basis of our foundation," he said, and called upon BJP workers to ensure that the party is present in every (polling) booth, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Kamrup to Kutch.
