The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to extend the tenure of its party president Amit Shah till 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The saffron party wants to contest the upcoming elections under the leadership of Amit Shah.
Amit Shah's tenure was scheduled to end in January 2019, but the BJP decided to delay its organisational elections till 2019 polls so that Amit Shah could lead the party during the crucial polls. The decision was taken at a two-day national executive meet that started in New Delhi on Saturday.
Shah pledged to work to ensure the BJP's return to power in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, he said that this victory will be even bigger than 2014. "We have the most-popular leader in the world [Prime Minister Narendra Modi]," Shah said.
The meeting of BJP's national executive took place almost after a year. The party adopted the slogan 'ajey BJP' (invincible BJP) on the first day of its meet.
As Lok Sabha polls are just around the corner the party will focus on fighting the Opposition's attack on the Modi government over issues like rising fuel prices, demonetisation, Rafale deal, among others.
