Mr Gandhi, whose family is the pivotal force of the Congress, told students "this is how India works" when he was asked about dynasty politics.

Modi is likely to address the concerns over the state of the Indian economy and is all set to list the achievements of his government in the last three years. "Look at the huge corruption while the Congress was in power", Shah said at the party's national executive meet in Delhi. "There was no political discussion during the meeting", state BJP sources said here.

He said the PM aimed at taking BJP party beyond elections. The party also supported government's stand on the Rohingya issue.

Briefing reporters, Union Minister and BJP leader Piyush Goyal said in his speech, the BJP president condemned the "politics of violence" in CPI-M led Left Front ruled Kerala and Trinamool-ruled West Bengal. "The Prime Minister said that contesting election is just one of the several responsibilities of a political party and we should use this opportunity to ensure that democracy goes beyond the elections". The national executive on Monday thanked the Prime Minister and finance minister Arun Jaitley for accomplishing two "great achievements" of demonetisation and implementing GST.

Shah explained that the campaign was successful because loyal party workers were spending at least 15 days at the booth level; in some instances, he added, it was even as long as six months to a year. "While the PM is entitled to make sanctimonious and preachy statements about the BJP being an instrument of mass welfare, the fact is BJP is nothing more than an electoral instrument predicated on polarising and dividing society for electoral gain".

The BJP has already started preparing for the 2019 electoral battle.

"UPA didn't take a single step against black money and corruption; obvious their leaders will be uneasy over our measures against it", he said. "Now they do not know how to behave as Opposition", he said.

"PM said sometimes Opposition uses harsh words when there is no specific allegation; harsh language can not be a substitute for substantive charge", Jaitley said.
