BJP President Amit Shah on March 31 spoke about a range of issues like the saffron party’s performance in West Bengal, Odisha and the northeast, the Balakot airstrikes, Mission Shakti and Priyanka Gandhi’s foray into active politics at the News18 Agenda India Summit. Here’s a look at some of his key comments:

PM Modi only No. 1 in BJP | Asked who was the ‘number 2’ in the party, Shah said: “There is only number one in our party and that is Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Were you to look for a number two after him, you would not find any. As far as the leadership of the party is concerned, I am very happy to be leading the world’s largest party and often seek suggestions from my seniors whenever the occasion arises.”
