Talking about the BJP, the Prime Minister pointed, “Our (BJP’s) strength is our Organisation and the hardwork of our Karyakartas.” He recalled the time when the BJP was reduced to two seats and asked whether anyone thought that time that the BJP would come to power securing a majority on its own.

Referring to the wonderful work in Gujarat under the leadership of Smt.
