Shah eyes Pawar's bastion, slams Rahul
Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah addressed party workers in Pune and Goa
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.
“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.”
