BJP has firmly  set its eyes on capturing power in Uttar Pradesh . The crucial state goes to the polls in  2017 . This confidence was exuded by BJP President Amit Shah who claimed that his party will form the next government in Uttar Pradesh after assembly election in the state due next year. “I am confident that the party will form a majority government after 2017 election,” he told reporters after inaugurating the party’s newly renovated state office.

 Shah said that he didn’t want to talk about politics, but he wanted to refer to nationalism. “I want to ask Congress and specially its Vice president Rahul Gandhi  that whether he consider slogans raised in JNU as anti-national or freedom of speech,” he said. He said that Gandhi must clarify about his party’s ideological ground.

The BJP President said that he had been raising the question for the last six days, but Rahul was maintaining silence.

He asked the party workers to raise the issue in every village and said that such slogans would not be supported in democracy. Shah said that strict action should be taken against those involved in such activities.

Attacking Rahul, Shah had alleged in Bahraich, that he was supporting the forces dividing the country for ‘votebank politics’. “I specially want to ask Congress and its workers whether those raising slogans like ‘Afzal Guru tere hatrayre zinda hain’ and ‘Bharat ke tukde honge’ were traitors or not,” Shah had said at a public meeting after unveiling of a statue of 11th century king of Shravasti, Raja Suheldeo.

Rahul  Gandhi had come out in support of the agitating JNU students, who are protesting the arrest of JNU Students’ Union leader Kanhaiya Kumar on sedition charge, and had accused the RSS and BJP of imposing their ideology.
