Panaji: The BJP in Goa would felicitate its national president Amit Shah on April 9 over the party securing power in four of the five states which went to polls recently.
"BJP Goa unit would be felicitating Amit Shah on April 9 for leading the party and forming the government in four states after the recently held assembly elections," party's Goa Unit President Vinay Tendulkar told on Tuesday.
A public meeting would be organised at Campal ground in the state capital, which will be attended by over 30,000 people, he said.
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, who played a key role in stitching up an alliance of regional outfits and independents paving the way for the BJP to form its government in Goa, will also be present at the meeting, he said.
This would be Shah's first visit to Goa after the February 4 Legislative Assembly elections.
The BJP, which finished second in Goa winning 13 seats, managed to form the government under Manohar Parrikar after cobbling together an alliance with regional parties like Goa Forward and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party besides getting three Independent MLAs to back them.
The BJP scored spectacular wins in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
In Goa and Manipur, where it fell short of a simple majority, the BJP managed to form ministries by securing the support of smaller groups and independents, frustrating the moves of rival Congress.
