When attention of a party spokesman was drawn towards this, he tried to evade the reply saying he had no idea about this. "It was a conspiracy by the Congress and its chief Rahul Gandhi to finish the political career of BJP President Amit Shah, as part of which wrong accusations were made and an over 100-strong delegation was taken to the President", he said. Answering a query, the Chief Minister said Congress should keep in mind that since 2014 since PM Modi came to power, the BJP has come to power in 21 states from 14 states.

"But as soon as the Yogi government came to power the thugs started migrating and rule of law has been established", he said. "Despite the short circuit the rally went on as scaheduled", Shah said. BJP President Amit Shah's Rae Bareli visit is being done in connection with the preparations for the general elections scheduled in 2019.
