CHANDIGARH: With an eye on the 2019 polls, the BJP’s national president made it clear that the saffron party was a permanent ally of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and it has to work with its senior alliance partner for the upcoming 2019 general elections and the party has to do micro-management.

Sources said that Shah who held a 90-minute meeting of the party leadership in the northern state, including the 13 Lok Sabha constituency in-charges recently appointed by the BJP, did not mince word.
Shah reportedly told party leaders that they have to consolidate their vote bank and have to work in tandem with the BJP’s senior and oldest alliance partner Akali Dal. He also told BJP leaders to motivate the party cadre as the goal was to win the maximum seats from the state with the support of the SAD.
Before Shah addressed the party leaders, he got in-depth feedback from them.
