BJP President Amit Shah said that up coming UP Assembly Polls will not exactly be a referendum on the demonetisation move of the Narendra Modi Government but if the Opposition wants to play it that way then the BJP is game for it.
In an exclusive interview with CNN-News 18, Amit Shah said “there are so many anti-incumbency issues in UP. Still, if the Opposition wants to do a referendum on demonetisation, we are ready for it. People of UP are with BJP on the issue of demonetisation.”
Shah claimed his party would come into power in the largely populated state with a 2/3 rd majority in the elections. He accused that Akhilesh and Mulayam staged the family feud drama to cover up the serious issues of law and order collapse and corruption.
When asked about RSS leader Manohan Vaidya’s statement on reservations, Shah said the remarks were taken out of context. “Both BJP and RSS have made it amply clear that in the prevailing situation the current system of reservation must continue. There is no question of revisiting the issue,” he said.
Commenting about Ram Temple issue, Shah said the party was very clear about building the temple. “It can only be done under the Constitutional provisions: either through dialogue or through court order. Yes, we are definitely committed to building a Ram temple, but within the Constitutional provisions,” Shah was quoted by CNN-News 18 as saying.
Shah further said that was of the firm view that Triple Talaq curtails fundamental rights of women guaranteed by the Constitution.
How ever, the BJP president said that party’s in UP will veer around the “collapse” of law and order under the Akhilesh Yadav government, and stressed on issues like women’s security and increasing migration.
Shah added that BJP will win easily in Uttarakhand and will face a triangular fight in Punjab. Shah further said that Union minister Manohar Parrikar will be selected as CM in Goa if the people and MLAs asked for it.
