The taste of victory is sweet and the BJP wants more. At a weekly meeting of lawmakers on Thursday, party president Amit Shah offered a laddoo from the famous Tirupati temple in Andhra Pradesh's Chittoor to Prime Minister Modi - brought by a lawmaker as blessings of Lord Balaji - and immediately informed his colleagues that they begin preps for he BJP's next big target, the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

The party will hit the ground running. It has planned a week-long outreach programme to mark Dalit icon Bhim Rao Ambedkar's birth anniversary on April 14. The celebrations, which will start on April 6, the BJPs' foundation day, will be held in every panchayat ward in the country in an attempt to reach out to the Dalit community.

PM Modi has also asked party leaders to give a boost during that week to digital payment platform BHIM - short for Bharat Interface for Money which he dedicated to Ambedkar - by educating the masses about it, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters.

The laddoos, enough for all, celebrated the BJP's spectacular performance in assembly elections this weekend. The party has swept crucial Uttar Pradesh and also Uttarkhand and has managed to install governments it leads in Goa and Manipur. At today's meeting of party MPs, the architects of the wins, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah were felicitated. The BJP has pegged the election results as a victory of PM Modi's leadership and the people's verdict on his ban on 500 and 1000 rupee notes in November, aimed at eliminating tax evasion.    

Home Minister Rajnath Singh proposed a resolution to thank voters of the states where elections were held and the BJP's workers for their success. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley supported the resolution that was passed unanimously,  Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said.
