“On one side is BJP, which is ready to take on the bat­tle of elec­tions un­der the lead­er­ship of (Naren­dra) Modi. And on the other hand, a gath­band­han is be­ing built which has no leader, no plan, no di­rec­tion.”

—Amit Shah, BJP pres­i­dent

Set­ting a tar­get of win­ning 45 out of 48 Lok Sabha seats in Ma­ha­rash­tra, Shah told party work­ers in Pune Satur­day that Bara­mati, NCP supremo Sharad Pawar's bas­tion, should be one of them.

"Not a sin­gle seat should go to the peo­ple who were in­volved in cor­rup­tion in Ma­ha­rash­tra...," Shah said in Pune.

In Goa, Shah ac­cused Congress chief Rahul Gandhi of tak­ing pol­i­tics to a new low by try­ing to politi­cise his meet­ing with Goa CM Manohar Par­rikar last month over the Rafale deal. “...such low level pol­i­tics no one has ever done, to tell lies and play with the (sen­ti­ments of a) sick man,” Shah said.
