Amit Shah was addressing to the collection of eminent persons on the second day of his three day visit to Chattisgarh. This visit was organised in order to strengthen the party position for the election of Year 2018.
Well, this statement of Amit Shah gave the politicians the task of commenting on BJP. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee ask Amit Shah to withdraw his statement and apologies for the same. She said “He should withdraw his comment and apologise. It is a deliberate act. It is unfortunate, uncalled for and unethical.”

While addressing he said “The Congress is not a party based on one ideology or one principle, it is a special purpose vehicle to gain independence…this is why Mahatma Gandhi with foresight, he was a very clever baniya, he knew what was going to happen, he said immediately after independence that the Congress should be dissolved.”
On one hand he attacked Congress then on the other hand praises the clear approach of Bhartiya Janata Party.
