BJP yet to decide on Presidential candidate, says Amit Shah

Addressing a press conference in Chandigarh press club here, the BJP national chief said that the reports about infighting among BJP MLAs' are mere media creation and does not mean anything for the party high command. A leading news portal, quoted a young journalist saying,"This kind of reaction to queries does not go well with the president of a national party".

With concerns being raised about the situation in Kashmir, the top BJP leadership on Sunday said the government was working on a plan to return the state to normalcy and would find a permanent solution to the issues troubling the valley. "What else Congress can say".

Shah said the BJP government was making every effort to bring peace to Kashmir Valley, which has been on the boil for the past many weeks.

The Prime Minister made efforts, but we did not get results. "What the BJP promises is a democratic socialist government". Mr Shah said the Modi government has delivered in all fields, from launching satellites into space to providing LPG cylinders to the poor, as he asked party leaders to inform the masses about its "successes". Don't see the past six months, you have to see Kashmir from 1989 to 2017.

The BJP leader also highlighted the Swachh Bharat Mission and said that "due to the prime minister's initiative over four crore toilets have been constructed all over the country". "It will be much bigger than last time (2014)", Shah said, noting that the BJP, in three years of being in power in the centre, had provided a corruption-free and development-oriented Government. Welcoming the International Court of Justice (ICJ) order, which stayed the execution of former Naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, he termed it as "a very big achievement" for the government.

The selection of Nalgonda for Mr. Shah's three-day sojourn too is said to be strategic.

The BJP president will leave for Telangana tomorrow as part of his 95-day tour across the country to strengthen the organisation.
