The issue of nationalism continued to take the centre stage in the deliberations after party chief Amit Shah set the tone in his inaugural address yesterday saying BJP will not tolerate any attack on the nation, with the dominant mood in BJP being to put the Congress in a corner on the issue.
Briefing the media on the resolution, Union Minister Arun Jaitley said "freedom of expression and nationalism do necessarily co-exist" and the Constitution gives full freedom for expressing dissent and disagreement, but not the country's destruction.
The Finance Minister, a key party strategist, also targeted Congress over its political strength, saying the main opposition party has "lowered" its stature and was "content to be a tail ender of any alliance" in states like Bihar, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu.
