The steps sought include adequate police protection for BJP candidates and a directive to the state election commission that the nomination process should not be closed till its nominees can submit their papers without fear. The nomination deadline is April 9. "Infact, if there is one party that has consistently been a victim of political untouchability, it is the BJP". "Those assembled together do not match in ideologies but they have come together only because they are afraid of PM Modi".

With the rally, Shah sounded off the bugle for the 2019 polls in a distinctly electoral speech that targeted the Opposition parties and reiterated the BJP's commitment to Dalits, the poor, the backward and farmers. "We are protesting against the negative attitude of Congress which the country has seen during last 23 days", Kumar said.

The opposition has been left with no issues and that is why it was resorting to disrupting Parliament, he said, asking BJP MPs to expose such parties. "Those who spread lies cannot digest how BJP can have so many Dalit MPs, SC/ST MLAs and MPs and so an environment of opposition is being created towards BJP", Modi said.

Shah is in Mumbai to celebrate the BJP's 38th foundation day.

He was apparently referring to the efforts being made by various parties like the TRS, the Trinamool Congress and the TDP to sew up a coalition to take on Modi-led BJP in the next general elections.

Mumbai: BJP president Amit Shah on Friday made stinging remarks against the opposition parties trying to unite to take on the BJP in next year's Lok Sabha polls by equating them to "snakes", "mongoose", "dogs" and "cats". He must have given some injection that is why now Rahul Baba is daring to ask about four-and-half years of Modi government. "However, (Chief Minister Devendra) Fadnavis is protecting them and Shah, atop the mountain of corruption and speaking of transparency and corruption-less governance, which is "a joke", said Chavan.

Reshma from Mumbai wanted to know about the usage of technology, to which the Prime Minister said, "Life without technology is a life incomplete and we must keep using technology for a better future".

Blaming the Opposition Congress for the second leg of Budget session being a total washout, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that BJP lawmakers will observe a fast on April 12 to protest the deadlock in Parliament. He also termed the BJP as a party that is a true believer in democratic ethos that is devoid of divisions and dynasty politics. Now it is the world's largest, with 11 crore members.

However, the BJP workers alleged that their special trains were late by two to five hours as the railways did not run them on priority. "This event changed the way the world looks at India".
