Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah while addressing the public in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, on Tuesday revealed that ruling party BJP is all set to form its government in the state for the 4th consecutive term, as Congress’ dream of coming to power will not be fulfilled.

The 53-year-old was addressing at the Karyakarta Mahakumbh at Jamboree Maidan, he described Madhya Pradesh as BJP’s heart and soul and Congress should forget about winning here as BJP has become so strong that it has been successful in forming government even in those states where it had never managed to win a single seat in the past.

Speaking to media, Shah said, "BJP has grown into a big family, from 10 members to an organisation having 11 crore members. The party has formed the government in 19 states, has 1,800 MLAs and 350 MPs. On the other hand, Congress has been reduced to just 44 seats from 440 seats in Parliament. Challenging BJP in Madhya Pradesh, which is the heart of the party, will remain a pipe-dream for the Congress."

The BJP president also took a dig at Congress chief Rahul Gandhi over his party's stand on illegal infiltrators.

"We began registration of Indian citizens in Assam and found that there are 40 lakh illegal infiltrators. Congress created a lot of hue and cry regarding the deportation of migrants, but BJP will never allow infiltrators in the country. For us, the country is the priority and not the vote bank. The process will not stop and Congress must clear its stand whether infiltrators should be removed from the country or not", said the 53-year-old.

The BJP president also declared to celebrate the birth centenary of party's co-founder Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia.

According to reports in media, Amit Shah said "The party has decided to celebrate Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia's birth centenary on October 12. As a tribute to Rajmata Scindia, the workers should resolve to win the coming elections with a massive majority".

He further added, "There is no competition to the BJP as far as development, security and nationalism are concerned. The challenge for workers is not just ensuring victory in Madhya Pradesh, but a thumping mandate which will send shivers down rival’s spine."
