Expressing confidence about his party coming back to power in 2019 Lok Sabha polls, BJP president Amit Shah said Sunday his party will rule the country for the next 50 years. “Amit Shah said the party will win the 2019 elections because of its performance and then no one can dethrone the BJP for the next 50 years,” senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters here quoting the party president at the national executive meet of the party. Prasad said the projection is based on the work and achievement of the party-ruled government at the Centre and not arrogance.

Delivering the concluding speech of the event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave the slogan of ‘ajeya Bharat, atal Bhajapa’ (victorious India, steadfast BJP) to his party for the 2019 polls, and asked party workers to win each and every polling booth.

In the morning, the national executive passed a political resolution that presented the party’s agenda of building a ‘new India’ by 2022 that would be free of casteism, corruption, communalism, and terrorism. The political resolution was presented by the senior party leader and Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

However, neither the political resolution nor the speeches of Modi and Shah, had any reference to increasing prices of petrol and diesel, the Rafale issue, the decline in the value of the rupee or the recent Reserve Bank of India annual report that revealed that 99.3 per cent of demonetised currency returned to the banks.

Unlike previous national executives, there was no separate economic resolution. When asked, senior BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, who briefed the media, defended the omission by pointing out that the political resolution has a substantive section on economic issues.

Briefing the media, Union minister Prakash Javadekar said a lot of developmental work has been done in the last four years, and a New India will be formed by 2022.

Responding to a question by News18, Javadekar, however, said the Rafale fighter jet deal was not mentioned in the resolution. “There was no need for it. People who are making the corruption allegation need to understand that there was no middleman in the deal. There was no Quattrocchi in it,” Javadekar said, referring to the middleman of the infamous Bofors deal. He also clarified that Ram Mandir, widely believed to be one of BJP’s election pitches for 2019, was not mentioned in the resolution.
