The message was played during Amit Shah’s address to BJP workers near here,

Shah told the gathering

of around 15,000 BJP workers at Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium that he had conversed with Parrikar over phone and the latter had inquired about the Karnataka polls.

When I called him (Parrikar), just after initial ‘namaskar’ he asked me about the Karnataka elections. Despite being in the USA for treatment, Parrikar is concerned about the party, which is a symbol of a true worker,” Shah said.

“I told Parrikarji to take care of his health. I told him that the BJP will have full majority in Karnatka and that we will form the government on the evening of May 15,” he said.

“He (Parrikar) said I am missing all my booth workers. I told him you come back healthy and we will hold a convention bigger than this, and I will be there to welcome you back,” the BJP chief added.
