The BJP president said this showed their party’s strength as it was because of them that the bua-bhatija duo had to unite. Shah while addressing a gathering in Uttarakhand said, “Gathbandhan ke liye UP ki bhi charcha hoti hai, kabhi ek dusre ka mooh na dekhne wale, namaste na karne wale, bua-bhatija ek manch par aa gaye. Vo ek ho gaye, vo hi batata hai ki hum kitne taakatvar hai,humare kaaran ek hona padha.” Also Read - 'Bengal Maango Toh Cheer Denge': TMC's Madan Mitra Issues Violent Threat To BJP

“In Uttar Pradesh, arch-rivals (Mayawati-Akhilesh) have come together to fight us. It reflects how powerful we are. All these Gathbandhan people say Modi hataao and Modi says Gareebi hataao. These Gathbandhans and their leaders cannot do anything for the country. Neither will they be able to conduct surgical strikes,” Shah said.
