Every party in the country has stood on “Parivarwaad”, but the BJP is a party of Karyakartas where common activists pasting posters on walls or selling tea have reached to the top position, party National Working President Shri JP Nadda said while addressing a BJP Shakti Kendra and Booth Level workers Convention on 30 August, 2019 in Lohardaga, Jharkhand.
Shri Nadda said majority of political parties laying their foundations on politics of family and dynasty, while the BJP gives an opportunity to every Karyakarta of the party to grow.
Lauding Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah on abrogation of Article 370, Shri Nadda said, “Shri Shah decimated Article 370 just in a day’s debate, freeing Jammu & Kashmir of 70 year’s ordeal”.
He expressed gladness at seven crore members being added to the party during the ongoing membership drive, taking the total count to 18 crores in the country. “The BJP has formed governments in 17 states and now West Bengal remains. First Jharkhand and then Bengal, he said. Assembly elections in Jharkhand are likely to be held in November or December this year.
The BJP Working President told the Karyakartas to dominate the electorate with issues like abrogation of Article 370 and Triple Talaq and not to get dominated by their queries and problems. “The leader is one who dominates and the follower is one who gets dominated. When you are among the people, they will pose ten questions. But you have to bring them to the issues of Article 370 and Triple Talaq,” he said amid the chants of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai.’
In his address, Jharkhand Chief Minister Shri Raghubar Das said, “Kashmir is ours and will remain ours forever,” and thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for diluting Article 370 that gave special provisions to Jammu and Kashmir.
Shri Das said, Jharkhand suffered political instability for 14 years since its formation as a state in 2000. On one hand (former) ministers and (ex-) chief minister went to jail for corruption but on the other, there is no scam in our government now.
Development of the country and the state is happening in the double-engine governments, Shri Das said, adding Shri Narendra Modi has become a global leader and BJP’s ideology is spreading in the world. Our objective is to serve the people, he said.
Union Tribal Affairs Minister Shri Arjun Munda said, “Our Forefathers dream of Independent India has been fulfilled by our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji by achieving one nation, one symbol and one Constitution within 100 days of the government”.
BJPs State President Shri Laxman Gilua said that there is not much time left as assembly elections are likely to be held in November or December this year, so every worker should go to every booth and panchayat and make the people aware of welfare and developmental schemes of the central and the state governments. Our government is committed to developing villages, poor women and the youth, Shri Gilua said.
BJP National Working President Shri JP Nadda along with other senior leaders also addressed the Ujjwala Didi Sammelan in Palamu and a public meeting at Chatra in Jharkhand on 31 August, 2019.
‘Rahul Gandhi Speaking Pakistan’s Language’
BJP Working President Shri JP Nadda on 28 August, 2019 said that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was speaking Pakistan’s language on Kashmir. Shri Nadda was addressing the party’s `Maha Janadesh Yatra’, a pre-poll outreach campaign in Jalna Maharashtra. Maharashtra Chief Minister Shri Devendra Fadnavis was also present.
Targeting Rahul Gandhi, Shri Nadda said his statement on Kashmir was used by Pakistan in the United Nations. “Now he has backtracked and is saying that Jammu and Kashmir is India’s internal matter and there is no scope of any foreign country to interfere in it. Why was he silent for so long?” Shri Nadda asked. He also alleged that the Congress was pursuing policy of appeasement on the Kashmir issue as well as the Triple Talaq.
Shri Nadda also said that in the recently concluded nationwide membership drive, the ruling party had made 7 crore new members. The membership drive was started in Varanasi by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on 06 July. “We have made over 5.81 crore members online, over 62 lakh members offline. Total we have made around 7 crore members. BJP already has 11 crore members,” he said.
Elaborating on the party’s membership drive, he said that people of the socially and financially weaker sections, youth and women had joined the party in large numbers. He also said that membership work was affected due to floods in some parts of the country and the party members were involved in relief and rescue efforts.
“There has been an increase of at least 50% members in every state. Our target for West Bengal was initially 60 lakhs, but we managed to induct 1 crore people,” Shri Nadda said.
Addressed the huge gathering at Jalna CM Shri Devendra Fadnavis thanked BJP National Working President Shri J P Nadda and BJP National General Secretary and in-Charge Shri Bhupendra Yadav for joining in Maha Janadesh Yatra. He also thanked the people of Jalna for reaching out to rally and road show in large numbers.
