Amit ShahMeanwhile, Amit Shah slammed Rahul's leadership as being undemocratic

At the meeting, BJP President Amit Shah took a tough stance on the Rafale deal case, telling MPs that Congress created unnecessary controversy. He said whatever could be made public has been given without endangering national security.

He slammed Congress President Rahul Gandhi's "undemocratic" politics for disrupting PM's Parliament speech.

Motivating MPs, he said, "Don't look towards Rajasthan defeat. Work towards victory in 2019."

SignificanceIn what context should these speeches be seen?

These speeches are significant because in recent times, BJP has been hit by a slight anti-incumbency wave. This was observed in its complete washout in the recent Rajasthan by-polls, where it's in power, and a lack-lustre Gujarat performance.

Moreover, in the near future, there are two more Lok Sabha by-elections coming up in Bihar; the BJP-JD(U) combine is in power there.
