Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national President Amit Shah was in Patna today to launch a book on Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay, the founding father of the erstwhile Jan Sangh Party that over the years morphed into the current form of the BJP.

Speaking at the Sri Krishna Memorial Hall on Tuesday, Shah said that besides being committed to eliminating institutionalized corruption from the nation and putting an end to black money, the BJP was now focusing on bringing sweeping reforms in the electoral process that would essentially eliminate the need of having crores and crores of rupees to run a successful campaign.

“We have formed a new team to study flaws and loopholes in our election system that, in its current form, is not fair to those who are unable to raise money for their campaign. Once new policies are put in place; no single party would feel disadvantaged in the lack of funding as the playing field will be leveled for all,” the BJP leader said.

Shah, defending the demonetization step by the Narendra Modi government, said the move was not to please the ultra-rich people but for the benefit of the 80 crore poor people of India.

“Demonetization will stop people from evading tax and would also help increase the budget of the nation. This will lead to progress in schemes meant to help the poor people of India,” he said.

On the occasion, Shah released a 15-volume book 'Deendayal Sampoorn Wangmaya', a collection of political writings of Pandit Upadhyaya. The editor of the book Dr. Mahesh Chandra Sharma and Indira Gandhi National Art Center Chairperson Ram Bahadur Rai were also present on the occasion.

The BJP President, who arrived at the Patna Airport at 11:00 am, first paid a visit to the Patna Saheb Gurudwara to pay his respect to Guru Govind Singh, the 10th Guru of the Sikhs before making a brief stop at the BJP state headquarters on Birchand Patel Marg where he was welcomed by the party state President Nityanand Rai.
