Mumbai: BJP President Amit Shah on Friday attacked the opposition parties coming together, likening them to "snakes, mongooses, dogs and cats", only to retract hours later following strong reactions.

"Due to Modi flood, all cats, dogs, snakes and mongoose are getting together to contest polls". "They include BSP-SP (the Bahujan Samaj Party-Samajwadi Party), TDP-Congress, Congress-Trinamool Congress", Shah told reporters later.

The BJP president reiterated that the Modi government would never abolish the Atrocities Act and reservation to SCs, STs and OBCs nor would it allow Congress and other parties to do so.

"Rahul Baba, we want to ask you 'What did your party do when it was in power for four generations", the people of the country want to know this?' Mr Shah questioned. "After the BJPs BKC rally in 2014 (which was addressed by the BJPs then prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi) power was changed in the country, similarly this upcoming mega rally will also enthuse party cadres with new energy and the impact would be seen nationwide", he said. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader".

Sat Sharma, the Jammu and Kashmir state BJP president, said the PM is scheduled to visit all three regions of the state - Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu. It is only natural that we celebrate our foundation day in Mumbai when we rule the country and have governments in 22 states on our own or with allies, something that no party has achieved before. "It was the opposition that disrupted the proceedings". We are not scared of discussing anything.

On Modi's vision for "new India", Gadkari said, "For New India, we need research, and technology".

"We are in politics for betterment of people".

Modi appealed to the BJP Karyakartas to get acquainted with the extensive work done by the NDA Government, particularly those schemes that positively impact the poor.

He said the BJP had grown manifold from a party of 2 MPs to 330 MPs, with full majority in Parliament. The Prime Minister said he bows to all BJP Karyakartas on the special occasion of the party's Sthapana Diwas.

Danve said arrangements have been made to bring the party workers to Mumbai in trains, buses and jeeps. Now it is the world's largest, with 11 crore members.

It showed his personal connect with workers and understanding of developmental projects, they said.
