Chief Minister of Tripura Biplab Kumar Deb said that Union Home minister Amit Shah wants to expand the BJP’s reach out in neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka and Nepal.
The Chief Minister said in an address to party workers that during his visit to the state of Tripura Amit Shah had said that BJP should expand beyond the borders of India.
“When home minister was our party president, we met at the Tripura state guest. That time someone amongst us, I guess Ajay Jamwal (BJP general secretary for North East) told him how BJP was in power in several states of India now. In response, Shah said Nepal and Sri Lanka were still left. We still need to take our party into those countries and win them!” Deb told in his statement in the address.
He was addressing at the Rabindra Satabarshiki Bhavan where he hailed Shah’s leadership and his goal of expanding BJP beyond the Indian boundaries.
“One who has such energy, such vision that the BJP needs to expand across the globe and under his leadership, BJP became the world’s largest party, a record held by the Communists,” Deb further said.
