JAIPUR: In his first visit to Rajasthan after the Bharatiya Janata Party lost the 2018 Assembly elections, party chief Amit Shah on Monday, in an apparent bid to inject morale among the state’s cadres, hit out at the Opposition alliance saying it has no leader to take on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.​

Addressing party workers in Jaipur, Shah said, “The opposition has created an alliance to defeat Narendra Modi. I ask Rahul Baba; Who is their leader? Because, every day the coalition sees a new leader,” he said. Exhorting party workers to dismiss the Assembly poll results and look ahead, he added, “We are here to serve. Our goal is not to gain power but to serve the people.” 

He reminded workers that the difference of votes between the Congress and the BJP in the Assembly polls was just 1.7 lakh votes. The party is looking to make a strong comeback after its defeat did the Vasundhara Raje government in last year. 

“Lots of media people ask me that you have not formed the government in Rajasthan so what is the mood of your party workers. I tell them that we are a party that focuses on fighting not on winning. Our party started in 1950 and we should ensure that in 2019, we steady our wings all over the country,” he added.
