Posters, banners and hoardings dotted the stretch to the Ramlila Maidan, the venue of the BJP's National Convention in the heart of the capital, with "Abki Bar Phir Modi Sarkar" (Modi government again this time) as the party sought to prepare the workers for the battle of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
Delegates to the two-day meet which began on Friday also saw hoardings related to the government's pro-poor schemes and the just-passed quota bill that provides reservation to economically backward upper castes and the enhancing of the minimum support price to farmers.
"The BJP wants a grand Ram temple to be built at the earliest. We are committed to it," Shah said, as the audience erupted into dramatic cheers.
The issue charged the workers and compelled Shah to interrupt his speech and chant "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" along with the crowd.
The event which started with the customary flag hoisting and lighting of lamp also saw a Muslim Shabana Rehman singing the Vande Mataran. She also chanted "Bharat Mata Ki Jai".
Many of the party leaders including union ministers later posted their photographs on Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag Abki Bar Phir Modi Sarkar. In the 2014 Lok Sabha election, the BJP's main slogan was "Abki Bar, Modi Sarkar".
