Earlier, Shah held a meeting with BJP office-bearers to chalk out a strategy for expanding the party base in other states.
Shah asked the party workers to react peacefully against the violence perpetrated against them in states like Kerala, Bengal and Tripura. The BJP's massive wins in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have changed the experts' definition of big victories, usually associated with two-thirds majority, as it won more than 75% of seats as people have embraced "our politics of performance" and rejected opposition parties' politics of brazen appeasement, rank family promotion and casteism, Shah said.
The two-day meet would formally begin with the speech of Shah while on Sunday the concluding remarks will be delivered by Modi.
According to Prasad, Shah said: "Such talks are like not accepting the defeat honestly and dishonouring the Election Commission". Minister Prasad said that BJP chief Amit Shah will spend time at the booth-level for 95 days by September. The party feels that the momentum should be continued in order to consolidate its position in these states.
