BJP National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda on November 17 inaugurated six new party offices in Bargarh, Sundargarh, Angul, Keonjhar, Baripada, and Dhenkanal through a virtual platform from BJP’s central office in New Delhi. He expressed confidence that these offices would act as a bridge between the party and the public by playing a better role in enriching the workers. Union Ministers Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Shri Pratap Sarangi, National Vice President of the Party Shri Baijayant Panda and National Spokesperson of the Party Dr. Sambit Patra were present on the dais at the Central Office, while Odisha State President Shri Sameer Mohanty, State Leader of the Opposition Shri Pradeep Nayak, Office Construction Convenor and State Treasurer Shri Sudarshan Goyal, state General Secretaries were present from Odisha. The party’s National General Secretary Shri Arun Singh, National Joint General secretary(Organization )Shri Saudan Singh, senior leaders Shri Jual Oraon, Shri Suresh Pujari and Shri Bishweshwar Tudu were also present in this inaugural programme through video conferencing.
Shri Nadda said that under the guidance of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, the then National President of the party Shri Amit Bhai Shah ji had taken up the task of building a party office in every district of the country and today we are proud to say that more than 400 district offices have been completed, construction of 200 district offices is in progress and in other districts work has started. All these offices are equipped with latest technology and all necessary arrangements. I heartily congratulate the Office Building Committee of Odisha for this. These offices are not just structures or buildings, but are also centers for training of workers. He asserted that when the party runs from the house instead of the office, then the family becomes the party but the party which operates from the office becomes family there. Today, if the Bharatiya Janata Party has become the largest political party in the world, then it has the biggest contribution to the party’s ideological background and culture. Workers in the office find inspiration to work devotedly to the party. Referring to the recently concluded Bihar Legislative Assembly elections and by-elections held in several states of the country, the BJP National President said that in the Bihar Legislative Assembly elections and by-elections held in 59 seats, the people of the entire nation, including Bihar, gave immense blessings to the BJP and showed unwavering faith in the leadership of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. From Manipur to Gujarat and from Karnataka to Ladakh, the people of the country expressed confidence in the BJP. We have the highest strike rate in Bihar. BJP contested 110 seats and won 74.
Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has developed a new culture of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Sabka Vishwas’ by ending the politics of casteism, dynasty and appeasement. By blessing the BJP, the people of the country have also stamped the work of the Modi government on the problem of migrant laborers during the management of Covid and lockdown. Shri Nadda said that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had fought against Covid by taking the country together. Covid management was also a big issue in the US Presidential election. While the developed countries of the world were finding themselves helpless in spite of good health arrangements, the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, not only secured the country by taking bold decisions on time, but also united the country to fight it.
The Hon’ble Prime Minister not only addressed the issue of health but also took the economic issue seriously and took initiatives like the Poor Welfare Package, the Self-Reliant India Campaign and the Poor Kalyan Rojgar Yojana. Under the Garib Kalyan package, three gas cylinders were made available free of cost to about 8 crore families and three installments of 500 rupees were deposited in the accounts of 20 crore women Jan Dhan account holders.
Financial assistance of Rs 1000 was provided to the Divyang, widows and the old persons during the lockdown, while the farmers were given two installments of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. Even the United Nations has appreciated the efforts of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji for Covid Management.
Shri Nadda said that when all the parties were inactive during the lockdown, there was only and only the Bharatiya Janata Party whose every worker devoted himself to the service of the needy, regardless of the risks to their lives. In Odisha, party workers distributed lakhs of ration packets and ration kits, more than 60 thousand sanitizers and more than 7 lakh face covers. Party workers successfully organized contact campaigns and virtual rallies.
BJP President said that the development of Odisha has always been our priority. As a Health Minister, I made a lot of efforts to implement Ayushman Bharat in Odisha but the BJD government of Odisha did not allow it to be implemented in the state. I still urge the Government of Odisha to implement Ayushman Bharat in the state. The Government of Odisha should consider it. Highlighting the infrastructure projects being implemented by Centre in Odisha,Shri Nadda said the Digha-Gopalpur coastal highway project will act as an economic corridor for transportation of agriculture and pisciculture produce. It will also play a crucial role in the supply chain during natural calamities like cyclone and flood, he added.
“A 451 km long Digha-Gopalpur Coastal Highway is being constructed in Odisha at a cost of around Rs 9,000 crore, Khorda-Bolangir New Line is being constructed at a cost of Rs 3791 crore and Cuttack-Angul- at a cost of Rs 4500 crore. The Sambalpur highway is under construction and a 68 km long ring road is being constructed in Bhubaneshwar under the Bharatmala Project. A gasification plant is under construction at Paradip at a cost of Rs 11,300 crore, which is a major initiative for Odisha’s economic world,” he said.
He added, “It is the responsibility of all the workers of the Bharatiya Janata Party to take Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s efforts for the development of Odisha from door to door in the state.”
“The BJP government at the Center has opened six new medical colleges in Odisha which tells a new story of the development of the state. The party has further strengthened its roots in the state. BJP has won 11 out of 33 tribal seats in the state and the vote percentage has also increased from 21% to 38%.” He said, “With this, BJP’s vote percentage has also increased from 18% to 32% in the Vidhan Sabha elections, indicating that the BJP is very close to the destination in Odisha.” Very soon, the Bharatiya Janata Party government will be formed in Odisha, Shri Nadda added.
