Introducing the BJP to a huge gathering of new youth members, BJP National President Shri Amit Shah launched the ‘Yuva Udghosh’ programme in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh on 20 January, 2018. The aim of this ‘Yuva Udghosh’ programme is to bring to the party fold a new generation of voters who would be voting for the first time in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
The BJP has reached out to youth between the ages of 17 and 35 and at least 10 youth members each from 1,736 booths attended the rally in Varanasi. According to sources, BJP managed to get around 20,000 youths to register themselves digitally with the party as part of the new outreach strategy and of them, 77% also downloaded the Bhim App. The party has also started distributing Vidhan Sabha-wise responsibility to its Yuva Morcha members to reach out to voters who will vote for the first time in 2019, and to communicate to them the ideology and programmes of the BJP. The experiment will be followed in other districts as well.
Addressing youths at the Kashi Vidyapeeth sports ground Shri Amit Shah said, “I welcome all those joining the BJP now. The BJP is not only a political party but it is also an ideology, a campaign and a resolve to build a new India. Therefore, those who have associated with the world’s largest party today have associated themselves with the campaign to build a new India under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi”.
He said the BJP was the only party which gave a chance to a Chaiwala (tea vendor) to become Prime Minister of India and a booth level worker like Amit Shah to head the world’s largest political party. “There is only one party that gives a booth worker an opportunity to reach the level of National President of BJP and only one party which gives the son of a poor tea-seller the opportunity to become the PM of 125 crore people,” Shri Shah said.
“BJP does not run on the basis of caste nor is it governed by a Gharana (dynasty) but this party is run by workers,” he said as he took a swipe at the Congress. The Congress’ politics of vote bank and Gharana (dynasty) has become obsolete. It will not work anymore, Shri Shah said.
Taking a jibe at the dynasty politics in Congress party, Shri Shah said that BJP doesn’t believe in family politics. Under the guidance of Modi Ji, the party has only moved forward and that is the most remarkable part. BJP doesn’t follow dynasty or family politics he said.
Hailing the historic Triple Talaq Bill, the BJP President said that BJP’s move gave Muslim women the justice they were waiting for a long time. The BJP has hailed the bill passed by the Lok Sabha that makes instant Triple Talaq a punishable offence. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill gives power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking subsistence allowance for her and minor children. This bill is a historic step towards ensuring dignity for Muslim women. I thank all fellow Parliamentarians who have supported this bill, which will bring a new era of hope and respect in the lives of Muslim women.
The BJP President said the Congress did not do anything for Varanasi during its rule. “What PM Modi has done for Varanasi within the last three years, the Congress couldn’t do during its rule of 70 years.
Under PM Modi’s leadership, developmental projects worth Rs 2,900 crore have been implemented in Varanasi,” Shri Shah said.
He also lauded Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for ensuring transparency in the system and bringing about considerable improvement in the law and order situation in the most populous state.
Shri Amit Shah said UP will become the most developed state in India under Shri Adityanath’s leadership when the state goes to polls in 2022. “The UP government is doing well under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. In less than a year, there has been a big, positive change in UP,” he said.
The Yogi Adityanath government ensured timely purchase of wheat and rice from farmers and ended the role of middlemen, he said. “Yogiji has put the state on path of development,” Shri Shah added.
India’s prestige has increased under the leadership of PM: Yogi Adityanath
While addressing the rally in Varanasi, CM Yogi Adityanath said that to connect the youth to the party, the National President Shri Amit Shah is launching the ‘Yuva Udghosh Program’ from Kashi’s land. He said that in the last three years, India’s prestige has increased under the leadership of PM Shri Modi ji. If the name of the three countries is taken in the world, then the name of India is included in it.
The CM said that Prime Minister Shri Modi has done the task of giving this glory to India. Earlier nobody had asked India, but today PM Modi has done the work of increasing the pride of 125 crore people in the world. Prior to the election, National President Amit Shah had released the Public Welfare Resolution, that work is now complete.
He said that our government has done the job of providing accommodation to 11 lakh people in 10 months. Within the last 10 months, we have trained six lakh youth through PM Skill Development program. Now the youth are getting jobs. Recruitment process of one lakh 37 thousand teachers has been started in the province.
He said that in the next three years, there will be one lakh 62 thousand vacancies in the state. He said that when young people will work on the strength with their talent while living in the home state, then the development of the state will be also. Our government is doing development without any discrimination. There will be no discrimination with any youth. The youth are ending the politics of familism and racism. We can complete the dream of a prosperous Uttar Pradesh by joining the youth.
Apart from BJP National President Shri Amit Shah, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, BJP State President Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey, State In-Charge Shri Om Prakash Mathur and State General Secretary (Organization) Shri Sunil Bansal also attended the rally.
