During the second day of BJP National Council Meet PM Narendra Modi set the tone for 2019 Lok Sabha elections as he discussed all the important issues concerning the national politics from Gathbandhan to Tukda Tukda gang, Farmers issues to quota bill, surgical strike politics to Doklam, Ram Mandir to corruption crackdown.

He said that 10% quota will enhance the confidence of new India.

"10 percent quota in education, government jobs to poor youths of general category will enhance the confidence of new India. He also raked up National Herald case, demolishing all open charges on him by Congress.

In a scratching attack on Congress, he said that India lost 10 significant years in scams and corruption.

"The previous government has pushed the nation into the dark. It is not wrong if I say that India has lost the significant 10 years from 2004 to 2014 in scams and corruption. These 10 years were very important at the beginning of the 21st century.”

He further said, "The first time in the nations' history that government hasn't been accused of corruption. We can take pride in the fact that there is no taint on us."

He lashed out Congress for delaying the Ayodhya case, “Congress is trying to obstruct the Ayodhya case through its lawyers. Congress was even ready to impeach the CJI using false allegations. What kind of mentality does the Congress have, which works against the country's interest on every issue?”

He said that Mahagathbandhan is working only for its own interests. Modi will work for the public interest.

He also blamed Other parties and said that they make fun of ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’.

"Important initiatives have been taken up in last 4 years for women empowerment. People made fun of 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' for political opposition, but we have come a long way to free society of wrong beliefs that existed for decades."

On CBI he said "In 2007, a Congress minister said that Modi will go to jail within a few months. Amit bhai ko to unhone jail mein daal bhi diya tha. But we didn't form a law to stop CBI from entering Gujarat as we had faith in the law. These people are leveling allegations on agencies because they're scared."

He said that he never banned CBI’s entry while he was the CM of Gujarat.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)  seemed to be all geared up for the mega Lok Sabha elections of 2019. Thousands of workers and leaders of the BJP gathered in New Delhi for the party two-day National Executive Council meeting on Friday and Saturday.

Themed around 'Ab ki baar phir Modi sarkar', the main agenda of the convention at Delhi's Ramlila Ground is social justice and farmer outreach. BJP chief Amit Shah sounded the poll bugle on Friday with his inaugural address, calling it a battle for 2019.
