Amit Shah tore into Azam Khan for his ‘lewd comments’ against party candidate Jaya Prada and demanded apology from Samajwadi Party (SP) and its ally Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) over his derogatory comments.

Amid reports of BJP stalwarts LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi being upset with the treatment meted out to them, the party president Amit Shah on Monday evening met both the veterans.

“The BJP's 'Sankalp Patra' aims to make India a developed nation by 2047 on completion of 100 years of Independence,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.

BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday released its election manifesto for Odisha, in which it promised to invest over 1 lakh crore in the irrigation sector and provide a pension of Rs 3,000 per month to farmers above the age of 60 years among others.

In his tweets, PM Modi said the BJP was born with an unwavering commitment to serve society and take the nation to new heights, and that it has become India's preferred party.

Hitting out at Congress over its poll promise of reviewing AFSPA, BJP president said that the grand old party does not have the "audacity" to go against the armed forces.

Shah said, "Today, Congress released its manifesto and promised that it will downgrade AFSPA. I want to ask the Congress chief, does he want to strengthen the armed forces or is he trying to demoralise them. What message does he want to give on AFSPA?"
