BJP president Amit Shah seems little tired after holding dozens of election rallies, roadshows and meetings across the country this Lok Election, but he looks more determined and confident than the last polls. This election, the BJP president is contesting from the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency, a party stronghold which had elected Atal Bihari Vajpayee (1996) and LK Advani (1991, 1998-2014).
In an exclusive interview with News Nation, Shah exudes confidence that his party will win the 2019 General Elections with bigger mandate than 2014.
