This is more so when the immediate attention is on Assembly elections lined up in the next seven months.

"They can not digest that a poor mother's son and someone from a backward caste has become the PM, and that a party they called a "Baniya-Brahmin party" has made a Dalit leader the country's president". Additionally, 50,000 private buses and vehicles ushered in more BJP supporters.

On the other hand, Modi recalled that "the BJP was born in the city of Mumbai, in extremely tough circumstances".

Lok Sabha elections is scheduled to take place in the nation in 2019.

The foundation day is dedicated to those who sacrificed their lives for the party's growth, the Prime Minister said. Shah mentioned the list of the party's electoral and other achievements, including snatching 11 states from the Congress.

Sharma said, "The remarks made by Amit Shah are condemnable".

Bringing to mind the BJP's founders, Shah reiterated the government's stance: "Our founders always said that we are in politics not to enjoy power but to bring the poor & downtrodden into mainstream of development".

The party apologised for the traffic problems on account of the rally, which was addressed by its chief Amit Shah in suburban Bandra. Historically, Maharashtra has been a hub of Dalit activism, and so, it was important for the BJP to address the concerns of the community in the state. "So they are all in one boat -to fight elections". "BJP will never abolish reservation rather if the Congress tries to do that we will prevent them with all our might", he said.

During his speech, he insisted that the Modi Government had done a lot for all sections of the society and that the BJP will seek to win the 2019 Lok Sabha polls on the basis of work done rather than by making "hollow assurances". He also lavished praise on another community icon, the late Congress leader Babu Jagjivan Ram, posting a small video in his memory on Twitter. They are the heart and soul of the party, whose sweat has taken the party to new heights. The rally is organized on the occasion of the party's 38th Foundation Day. This time, the celebrations were on a much larger scale.

He also interacted with Constituency Karyakartas in five Parliamentary seats- New Delhi, Delhi North East, Mumbai North Central, Hamirpur (Himachal Pradesh) and Saran (Bihar).

He said the technology be used for empowerment of people, but asked the party workers to be active on social media to check circulation of fake content and rumours.
