Poor's trust in us should not be broken: PM to BJP allies
While addressing a press conference, Senior BJP leader and union finance minister Arun Jaitley said a resolution has been passed where all parties have unanimously made a decision to contest 2019 Lok Sabha polls under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
A resolution passed at the meeting said, "In the extraordinary leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India has succeeded in establishing its identity in the world as a fast growing economy".
However, finance minister Arun Jaitley denied that a discussion on the presidential polls was on the agenda.
He said the allies lauded the pro-poor policies of the government and the steps taken for farmers and that the overwhelming victory in the recent assembly elections in UP were a reflection of the NDA's popularity.
The Prime minister talked about new India and youth development. "We do not want to break public's trust", the Prime Minister added. As each vote is important, BJP leaders like Manohar Parrikar and Adityanath Yogi, who have taken over as chief ministers of Goa and Uttar Pradesh respectively but have not yet been elected to their state assemblies, have been told not to quit their parliamentary seats. "Since the budget session will end in a few days, the government it seems is starting consultations for President and vice-president candidates", said a senior NDA leader. The meeting began with the inaugural address by BJP President Amit Shah.
