Amit Shah in Kanpur

BJP President Amit Shah on Wednesday took a dig at the proposed 'mahagathbandhan' of the opposition parties and said there will be a new prime minister every day if the grand alliance comes to power. Shah attacked the opposition parties for not disclosing its prime ministerial candidate and asked them to spell out their stand on the same. 

Shah was addressing a meeting of BJP's booth-level workers in Kanpur today ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

"The opposition should spell out who its prime ministerial candidate is," Shah said.

"If the 'gathbandhan' takes shape, Mayawati will be the prime minister on Monday, Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday, Mamata (Banerjee) on Wednesday, Sharad Pawar on Thursday, Deve Gowda on Friday and (M K) Stalin on Saturday and Sunday will be a holiday," he said.

"They are out to bring a change and do not have a leader," he added.

"The BJP has four Bs -- 'Badhta Bharat' and 'Banta Bharat'. Those who are forming an alliance have four Bs -- 'bua' (aunt), 'bhatija' (nephew), 'bhai' (brother) and 'behen' (sister)," Shah said, accusing the opposition parties of dynastic politics.

"Their government cannot take the country ahead. We want that a strong government is formed under Modiji, while they want a 'majboor' (helpless) government. Only Modiji can provide a 'mazboot' (strong) government," he asserted.

The BJP president exhorted the workers to ensure a formidable victory for the party in the parliamentary polls.

"It is also important for the country that BJP wins these elections..the win should be such that it shakes the opposition parties," Shah said.

He also lashed out at the Congress and said none of the party's leaders had the right to raise the Ram Janmabhoomi issue.

"I have come to tell the people of Uttar Pradesh that BJP is committed to ensure that a grand temple is made at the Ram Janmabhoomi," Shah said.

"The Congress government had acquired 42 acres of land of the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas...Nyas has asked that it be returned...we hope that the issue is resolved at the earliest and Lord Ram is installed in all his grandeur," he said.
