BJP president Amit Shah on Monday hit back at congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his "dynast" remark in U.S., saying that it is a tradition of the Congress party and not of India.

According to sources, Mr. Shah will review the progress of various organisational programmes suggested by him during his last visit to the State in August.

He also touched upon terrorism and his party's fight against it, the minister said.

All top leaders of the party State unit, including members of the core committee and office-bearers, are expected to take part in the meeting.

Shah's statement came at the ongoing BJP's National Executive Meet which is being attended by almost 2,500 party members, including 13 Chief Ministers. He said that people are looking towards BJP for change.

Union finance minister Arun Jaitley, who briefed the media on the Prime Minister's speech, said, "BJP is the most prominent political party in the country".

The key to expansion of the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) national electoral footprint is to successfully map polling booths across the country, party president Amit Shah said on Monday. He further said that today at 6:30 pm PM Narendra Modi will make an announcement of a big scheme.

Shah explained that the campaign was successful because loyal party workers were spending at least 15 days at the booth level; in some instances, he added, it was even as long as six months to a year. "While traditional politics will go on, with the mandate that we have got, we are taking democracy beyond elections", he stressed.

The BJP has already started preparing for the 2019 electoral battle.

Reminding Modi of the remarks he made against the opposition leaders, Tewari said: "This is very unfortunate".

"UPA didn't take a single step against black money and corruption; obvious their leaders will be uneasy over our measures against it", he said.

Taking a dig at opposition parties, Modi said their use of harsh language can not be a substitute for substantive charges against the government. "Harsh language can't be a substitute for substantive charges".
