Addressing a press conference to mark the first anniversary of BJP-led government, senior BJP leader and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley asserted that the party has become the central pole of Indian politics and the national polity will now be guided along pro-BJP and anti-BJP lines.

BJP also announced a host of programmes including 200 big rallies and 5,000 public meetings across the country to mark the first anniversary of its government which all Union and state ministers, party MPs and office bearers will address.

Jaitley also cited minorities in the country were safe and in the last one year, government has made attempts to ensure there is no communal tension. On provocative statements made by BJP leaders, he said they were told not to do so and some incidents like attacks on churches were found to be law and order issues.

"Today all such religious institutions have been provided with security, which was never there in the past," he said. "The last year has restored the credibility, dignity and stature of the Prime Minister's Office. In this government, the last word belongs to the Prime Minister and that is how it should be.
