New Delhi: The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on Monday passed a resolution to fight 2019 Lok Sabha elections under leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, sources said.
"NDA leaders decided to work together to succeed in 2019 Lok Sabha elections under Narendra Modi's leadership," said a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, who attended the meeting at the Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra at Chanakyapuri in New Delhi's diplomatic enclave.
"Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan made the proposal for fighting Lok Sabha election under Modi and it was accepted unanimously," the BJP leader added.
The NDA meeting was attended by 33 parties but there was no any discussion on the upcoming presidential or vice presidential elections.
Addressing the media, Financial Minister Arun Jaitley said the NDA meeting endorsed the policies of the government specially its "pro-poor policy".
"Despite the bad shape of economy, the government did a good job and headed towards development. There was not a single corruption charge against the government in its last three years' reign," he said.
The minister also said that new allies have joined NDA and this is the symbol of this government's popularity.
Asked if there was any discussion about the presidential elections, the minister categorically denied it, saying "No".
