GUWAHATI: In the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will win more than 21 out of 25 seats in the Northeast, said party president Amit Shah at a public rally in Guwahati on Saturday.
“BJP wants to ensure Assam's progress through development. Congress leaders including their party president had visited North East for rallies and had put baseless allegations on us. I want to ask Rahul Gandhi, what did he do for Assam's development in last 10 years,” countered Shah while addressing a Booth President Sammelan.
Recounting his journey from a booth president to the national president, Shah owes its success to the solid foundation and good cadres.
