Amid chants of ”Jai Shri Ram”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi seemed to throw a challenge for J.P. Nadda, the new party president, saying “Amit Bhai Ka karyakal hamesha hamesha yaad rahega (the tenure of Amit Shah will be remembered forever.”
Setting the tone for Nadda”s tenure, Modi said, it”s ”sangharsh” (fight) and ”sangathan” (organisation) that make BJP what it is today. “We”re not here for a short while, we”re here to serve Mother India for a long time,” he said.
But the comparison with Shah was unavoidable. “The BJP has expanded in a short time, fulfilling people’s aspirations and transforming itself with time,” said Modi, crediting Shah for the achievements.
