New Delhi: BJP president Amit Shah today in a press conference held at party’s national headquarters said golden period of BJP is yet to come. He was replying a question by media persons.

Shah said, ‘golden period of BJp is yet to come. I have said it in my replies in 2014 and before Uttar Pradesh election also. Till the time, we form our governments in Kerala, Bengal and Odisha, we can’t say it’s golden period of BJP.’

Shah further said, ‘and we will form our governments in Kerala, Bengal and Odisha. Karnataka we are surely going to win.’

Shah said Tripura victory is one for which BJP workers were waiting for last five generations.

He said, ‘We have got a victory for which BJP workers were waiting for five generations. No victory is small, but the way our cadres gave sacrifice to spread our ideology, I believe Tripura victory is very big for us. In last two years our 9 cadres were killed there. I believe their souls will have peace with this victory.’

Shah said BJP had not won even a single seat and lost deposit in all seats barring one in previously held assembly polls in Tripura in 2013. Today BJP led NDA has won 43 seats in Tripura.

When asked about Meghalaya where Congress has emerged the single largest party, Shah said, there’s no question about ‘todfod’, as Congress has not got majority. MLAs will decide who will form government. Shah categorically said that the verdict in all three states that went to election was against Congress. He said even in Meghalaya the verdict was against ruling Congress party.
