Muslim sisters should get justice: Modi


He said the Prime Minister at an election meeting in Uttar Pradesh had said poverty was acute in Odisha and announced to make Odisha a laboratory for the implementation of pro-poor schemes of the Union Government.

13 chief ministers of the party, the most BJP has ever had, were also in the audience.

Shah exhorted party workers to ensure the BJP symbol bloomed in every booth in the country.

"We can't simply move forward on a slow pace, but charge ahead with full speed", the Prime Minister said during the BJP National Executive Meeting.

"It's time for taking a long jump towards building a new India and rewrite history".

"Nobody should be exploited", the PM said.

"As far as social justice is concerned, our Muslim sisters should also get justice". "We have performed very well in Odisha and our karyakartas requested us, that is why we are conducting the meet here", said Madhav.

Elated by its stunning victory in the recently concluded assembly polls and also performing exceedingly well in the Odisha panchayat polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is planning to focus on the coastal state of Odisha, where the saffron party begins its two-day national executive meeting on Saturday.

"The Opposition is concocting new issues in a factory of some kind".

"Ham nahin chahate ki Muslim samaj main sangharsh ho, nyay milna chahiye", Gadkari quoted the Prime Minister as saying.

The Gujarat visit comes close on the heels of the prime minister's trip to Odisha.

BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain while supporting the Prime Minister's stance stated it is important for the Muslim women to be supported at this time of crisis.

Strong criticism was also directed at the opposition, which has questioned the security features of Electronic Voting Machines following the BJP's sweeping victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand in the recent round of assembly elections.

Making an intervention during the discussion on the motion for granting constitutional status to the national commission for backward classes, the Prime Minister highlighted there are sections among the Muslims, who are backwards, adding that they should be included in the discussion over backward classes.

Invoking Eklavya, a Mahabharata era warrior, Modi asked party leaders and workers to be their own guru like him in their work.

He also praised party president Amit Shah as "Chanakya", leaving no doubt that all others - no matter how tall in their own regions - will have to play second fiddle to Mr Shah, who has been the PM's Man Friday in the running of party affairs. "This trust and faith in the minds and hearts of the millions of common people has been proved again in the mandate and overwhelming support given to the party in the last many elections", the resolution said.
