The state government set up a four-member team under cabinet secretary Shishir Sinha to look into why the lift got stuck six inches short of its first-floor alignment.
Senior BJP leader and former Union minister C P Thakur called it a “conspiracy”. “The kind of politics we see in Bihar, we cannot rule out conspiracy,” said Thakur.
The incident happened when Shah was going from the ground floor of the state guest house to the first floor along with a few other senior BJP officials and security personnel.
Taking a dig at Nitish, he said that those claiming to have brought development to Bihar should answer on whose support they were able to do so.
The ceremony was completed amid loud drum beats and chants of ‘Prabhu Ramchandra Ki Jai’ on Wednesday morning, in the presence of BJP president Amit Shah, Fadnavis, Bhujbal, Murtadak and several others.
Amit Shah paid rich tributes to freedom fighters who fought for the independence of the country and exhorted partymen to rededicate themselves in creating a new and great India.
Amit Shah, who cancelled his scheduled visit to Kalighat temple, met Kailash Vijayvargiya, Siddharth Nath Singh, Suresh Pujari and party’s state president Rahul Sinha among others.
The foreword of the book, which includes Mookerjee’s debates in Parliament, and his correspondences with Nehru and Sheikh Abdullah, has been written by Amit Shah himself.
Amit Shah added: “Such obstruction in a multi-party democracy is not unexpected, but it does create obstacles to growth and development.”
“Every other day, a bomb explodes somewhere. A favourable environment for development and growth does not exist,” said Amit Shah.
Amit Shah termed the situation in Bengal as “acutely depressing”, adding that the Trinamool government has failed to deliver, just like “the Communists who ruined the state”.
He said there was a huge mandate for this government to take forward India’s growth and development.
The meeting was seen as a part of the BJP’s new strategy to rope in smaller parties and social groups to expand its base in the states.
Shah said Kalam dreamt of a developed, prosperous and strong India and dedicated his life to realising this dream.
Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah has conveyed his best wishes to Ajay Devgn for “Drishyam”.
