"We may have lost two seats and it does not matter, because we have snatched 11 States from the Congress", Mr. Shah said.
The BJP has always "accommodated" its allies despite winning a majority in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Amit Shah said here on Friday and hoped the party's bickering partner Shiv Sena would remain with it.
In his distinctly electoral address, Shah reacted to the this week's protests by Dalit groups against a perceived dilution of the Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, Shah stressed that his party would never remove reservations for Dalits or the Other Backward Classes. The BJP is the party of "a new India" and his party "believes in India's diversity, its unique culture and the strengths of 125 crore Indians", he said.
Slamming the Congress president, he said, "When we lost two Lok Sabha seats (in UP) recently, Rahul baba distributed candies".
Responding to the statement by Leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha GhulamNabi Azad that the BJP was running away from discussing burning issues, Shah said he was ready for any debate on any issue, anywhere. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, BJP Mumbai chief Ashish Shelar and Union ministers Nitin Gadkari, Prakash Javadekar, Piyush Goyal and Suresh Prabhu attended the event, among several other leaders.
"Mr Modi said the BJP is celebrating its 38th foundation day and it has become the largest party due to people's blessings and efforts of its workers, " stated Mr Kumar, adding that the Prime Minister also paid tributes to many of its late leaders and workers. Rahul baba you question our intentions. They (opposition parties) are turning increasingly violent against the BJP.
At the rally, Shah also accused the Opposition of halting Parliament proceedings in the second half of the Budget Session, which ended on Friday.

"Congress is in a state of shock and it is out of this that words like ideology are coming from them", Sitharaman said, added that it was unusual and ironical that a party which gave birth to dictatorship in the country is talking of "values and ideology". See, where those who criticised us are today and where we are today.
"Ever since Independence, nobody but Narendra Modi has done so", the BJP chief said. "I did not want to take names", he said.
He also condemned the March 19 attack on BJP party workers in Namchi and called upon the party functionaries to continue working for the people without fear. I would like tell Pawar Saheb, we serve to people what we drink.
"We are ready for debate, why just Parliament, we are ready for debate on any platform".
"We are in politics for betterment of people".
