Meerut: BJP's Uttar Pradesh unit has hit the ground running ahead of Lok Sabha elections next year with Amit Shah setting a target of winning 74 seats here.
Addressing a meeting attended by top state leaders of BJP as well as workers, party president Amit Shah said that winning 74 seats in UP would be crucial for BJP to come out with flying colours in the crucial Lok Sabha elections of 2019. "Law and order in the state has improved considerably. Pro-poor schemes have been initiated and the work done by the BJP governments will ensure that the party gets 51 per cent of the popular vote in 2019," he said.
Amit Shah also said that it was imperative for party workers at the ground level to take the message of PM Narendra Modi and good work of CM Yogi Adityanath to people across the state and ensure that they are aware of the work being done by both.
He also touched upon the much-debated topic of National Register of Citizens (NRC) and said that the country's security cannot be compromised under any circumstances and that illegal Bangladeshi immigrants would not be allowed to remain in the country. Amit Shah did add though that Hindu refugees need not panic.
