After Tripura victory, Amit Shah shifts focus to Odisha

If BJP chief Amit Shah is a student of post graduation then Congress president Rahul Gandhi is still in nursery class, Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said today while comparing the two leaders' capability in politics.

Bhubaneswar: BJD leaders on Saturday ridiculed BJP president Amit Shah's statement and claimed that the saffron party's "dream" of forming the government Odisha will never be fulfilled even though it has won in Tripura and other north eastern states.

He also took the opportunity to slam the Congress, saying after Rahul Gandhi became its president, this is the fifth defeat for his party. The BJP also emerged a close second in Nagaland, with leads of 26 out of 60 seats. "The government will be formed by the party that gets the support of (majority of) MLAs", he said.

The Congress has ruled the state for a decade.

"I requested the Congress for a coalition [in Tripura]", Banerjee said. "It is an endorsement of the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the people of the Northeast", he told a press conference in New Delhi.
