The BJP president Amit Shah narrating on the six-month accomplishments of the Modi-led NDA was candid enough to affirm that there is only leader in the central government and the leader is the Prime Minister.

During his maiden visit to Chhattisgarh capital on Friday to give an impetus to the party’s ongoing membership drive, the BJP leader contended that the government is working effectively because there is only one leader as the Prime Minister (Narendra Modi). “And this is also leading to winning the people’s trust”, Shah asserted.

To a query on the BJP leaders' controversial remarks on religious conversions and Nathuram Godse, the assassin of Mahatma Gandhi, the BJP leader stated that the party leaders should maintain restraint when they speak. “Where ever needed the party will talk to its members and advise so as to ensure the atmosphere should not get vitiated”, he said.

He however advised all political parties to come to the BJP-led government with a proposal seeking the parliament to pass an anti-conversion law.

The biggest achievement for the Modi-led government is that it is working as the effective government and there is no inconsistency or conflict within it. The entire secretariat is working together taking guidance from the prime minister.

“We will meet the target of 10 crore target of members by 31st March next year. So far we have already reached the figure of1.40 crore”, he told media persons.

On the Maoist menace, Shah, who is credited for his strategic abilities by the BJP, cited that there cannot be quick result to such problem. “Chhattisgarh has already gained a lot in its battle against the Maoists during the previous ten years and in the coming days the state will fight to the finish”, he said.

He denied that during the six month rule of the Modi-led government there is an increase in the incidents related to Maoists and terror attacks. “Compare any six months of the UPA with the Modi-government and assess it”, he said.
