NEW DELHI: Formally kicking in the saffron party’s election campaign for the upcoming Delhi Assembly polls, BJP chief Amit Shah on Tuesday asked party workers to gear up and work hard  for the elections.

“The only rival of the party in the state is your laziness, walk into the electoral battle the victory is yours,” he said. Shah also said that the victory of the BJP in four states had proved that the performance of Modi Government was quite satisfactory.

“Modi Government had taken important decisions for Delhi, including regularisation of unauthorised colonies. We shall form government in Delhi with a clear majority and the conditions are favourable,” he told party workers. To give a boost to grassroots workers,Modi is scheduled to address a rally at Ramlila Maidan here on January 10 as the party has decided to contest the Delhi Assembly  polls under Modi’s  leadership.
