Amit Shah, a senior member of the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Union Home Minister, declared on Sunday that his party will rule India for the next 30 to 40 years, during which time it will become a “vishwa guru” (world leader).
At the BJP national executive meeting in this city, Shah made the political resolution proposal and cited “dynastic politics, casteism, and politics of appeasement” as the “biggest crimes” and causes of the nation’s suffering over the years.
Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, gave a press briefing on Shah’s speech and noted that Shah used the BJP’s success in a number of polls to argue that it demonstrated the public’s support for the party’s “politics of development and performance” and called for an end to the politics of casteism, family rule, and appeasement.
The BJP, according to the home minister, will overthrow family rule in states like Telangana and West Bengal. It will also take power in states like Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Odisha, among others, that have so far resisted the saffron party’s power march since it took office at the federal level in 2014.
At the discussion, there was a “common hope and finding” that the BJP’s next phase of expansion will originate in south India, Sarma continued.
