Union Home Minister Amit Shah addressed the BJP's National Convention held in Delhi on Sunday in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other party leaders. He unleashed attacks on Opposition leaders, saying they only think of the future of their children.

PM Modi thinks of poor, the country's development, 'INDI alliance' leaders think of making their children the PM and CM, Shah asserted.

"Sonia Gandhi wants to make her son the prime minister of India," he added.

"The country has decided that PM Modi will again become the PM of the country, there is no doubt about it," he added.

Shah said INDI alliance and Congress party are destroying the spirit of democracy in the country.

"They coloured the democracy of the country with corruption, nepotism, appeasement and casteism. Such nepotistic parties were engaged in making a democratic arrangement to ensure that public opinion never emerged independently. PM Modi achieved development in 10 years by eliminating corruption, nepotism, appeasement and casteism," he added.

"In 75 years, this country has seen 17 Lok Sabha elections, 22 governments and 15 Prime Ministers. Every government in the country has tried to bring development as per its own time. But today I can say without any confusion that the work of overall development, development of every sector and development of every individual has been done only in the 10 years of PM Narendra Modi," he asserted.

BJP leaders hail Modi's development, cultural measures 

Meanwhile, a political resolution passed by the BJP's national convention asserted that the 10 years of the Narendra Modi government has made the idea of "Ram Rajya" come true on the ground. The resolution -- "Viksit Bharat-Modi ki guarantee"-- passed during the two-day convention, which began on Saturday, also attacked the Congress, saying people lost their trust in the party quickly wherever it was in power and brought back the BJP, a reference to states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

A host of BJP leaders highlighted the government's development and cultural measures, and various initiatives for south India, farmers and Sikhs during their remarks on the resolution.

Amid protests by a section of farmers, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said in his remarks while proposing the resolution that no government has done as much for farmers as the one led by Narendra Modi.

"Farmers are no less than family for the prime minister," he said.

The resolution also accused the opposition INDIA bloc of engaging in caste-based divisive politics and contrasted their approach with Modi's assertion that the country has only four castes -- the poor, farmers, women and the youth.

The government's initiatives have empowered these four "castes" as they are at the centre of its every scheme, it stated.

Under Modi's leadership, not only has the Ram temple been constructed but he has also realised the dream of "Ram Rajya" in totality by working to empower all sections of society, the resolution said.

The national convention expresses its unbreakable trust that the Modi government 3.0 will further speed up the country's development and scale new records of success to realise the prime minister's dream of a developed India by 2047, it stated.

Asserting that India has emerged as a strong and capable country, having relentlessly marched on the path of security, prosperity and happiness, the BJP reposed its faith in its 'foremost" leader and expressed confidence that it will win 370 seats and its alliance will bag over 400 seats.

"The 10 years of the Modi government has realised the idea of Ram Rajya on the ground," it said.

Singh also took a swipe at the opposition, claiming that the respect it has received from the ruling dispensation in the last 10 years is unprecedented.
