"The other name of Amit Shah is victory. Wherever Amit bhai goes, victory follows. We are confident that he will sweep Maharashtra in the upcoming assembly polls, the way he won states like UP and Gujarat during the Lok sabha elections. He is very well versed with the politics of Maharashtra as he himself was born in Mumbai," BJP’s Mumbai unit chief Ashish Shelar told reporters here.
Shelar added that Shah, being a grass root worker is the ‘best person’ to win the hearts of people belonging to the backward classes and that will help the party swing the result of Maharashtra Assembly election in its favour.
"Amit Shah is a leader, who has always worked for the party workers and understands issues of the backward castes well. This has now worried the Congress-NCP leadership in the state. With Shah's appointment, BJP central leadership has ensured that the 'Mahayuti' (mega-alliance) wins the Assembly elections at any cost," he added.
There was an atmosphere of celebration in the party's Mumbai office on Wednesday after Shah was announced the BJP chief.
