At the conclusion of the 2-day BJP National Executive meet on Sunday, party president Amit Shah affirmed that not only would the BJP win the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, but that it would continue in power for the next 50 years.

"Once BJP wins the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, no one can throw us out in 50 years," Amit Shah said at the national executive meeting.

"Modiji has not taken rest after the 2014 election. He has covered almost 300 Lok Sabha constituencies after becoming Prime Minister and he will cover the rest of the parliamentary constituencies before the 2019 elections," he said.

"The Congress came to power in 1947 and remained undefeated till 1967," Shah said.

"The people of the country are getting more oriented on performance and works of the government," he said.

"Modiji has not lost a single election since 2001 because of the kind of work he has done in the state," said Shah.

Ahead of the 2019 elections, Shah asked 9 crore dedicated party workers to visit about 22 crore families to highlight the work of the government in the last 4.5 years.

"By contacting them, we can reach out to every household before 2019," Shah said.

During the meeting, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a clarion call of Ajeya Bharat (A country which remains victorious and cannot to be subjugated by anyone) and Atal Bhajapa (A BJP which remains firm to its principles).

"We work with dedication for our principles. The principles remain firm but the strategy keeps changing from time to time," the Prime Minister said.

"The focus of this government is on 'sabka saath, sabka vikas'. About five crore got benefits under the Ujjawala scheme and the gas connections were given to the people without discriminating anyone," Modi said.

"About 18,000 villages were electrified in the last four-and-half-years. Around 5,000 of them were from northeast region. They do not vote us but despite that we worked for them," he said.

The statements from PM Modi and BJP President Amit Shah come at a time that the ruling BJP-led NDA government is facing heavy criticism for rising fuel prices, and falling value of rupee.
