On his first visit to Gujarat after being appointed as BJP National Working President Shri J P Nadda has arrived in Ahmedabad for his two-day visit from 19 July, 2019 and held several meeting with the party’s senior karyakartas under its membership drive, Sangathan Parv, at the party headquarters, Kamalam.
Addressing party karyakartas, including MLAs, MPs, various district in-charges and BJP membership drive in-charges, in the presence of Chief Minister Shri Vijay Rupani, BJP National General Secretary Shri Bhupendra Yadav, National Jt. General Secretary (Org.) Shri V Satish, state BJP President Shri Jitu Vaghani, Deputy Chief Minister Shri Nitin Patel, and other senior members, in Gandhinagar, he said that, “We all are very fortunate that we are a part of the largest political party”.
Since the Jan Sangh times, lakhs of party workers have worked hard day and night, the fruits of which we are seeing today. Forty years ago, despite losing elections continuously, we did not lose hope. Though the BJP is ruling in many states, “BJP National President Shri Amit Shah says that we still need to take it to the top,” Shri Nadda said.
He said that the entire country has been looking at Gujarat. “Gujarat has been a role model for India. After a huge win in 2014, the state model was replicated in the country,” he said.
Talking about the achievements of the party, Shri Nadda said that the BJP government in the Centre has not only raised the living standards of people, but has also improved their health conditions, which is noticed at the international level. “The number of beneficiaries of the Ayushmaan Bharat scheme is higher than even the population of many countries,” he said.
“Taking forward BJP’s Antodaya ideology, the party has always been concerned about the poor, the underprivileged and the backward. Today, both the Centre and the state BJP governments are dedicated to make policies that would reach the public at large,” he added.
“Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah are concerned about the prosperity of every citizen and working hard towards making a different image of India for the world. This is the reason that the country’s, especially Gujarat’s BJP workers’ responsibility has increased manifold,” he further added, saying that research would be conducted on changing the country’s image and people’s utmost faith in the BJP.
“I thank the Gujarat BJP team that has arranged meetings with maximum party karyakartas during the short visit”.
Shri JP Nadda has also visited the Statue of Unity on 20 July, 2019 and paid floral tributes to Sardar Patel.
“Its pilgrimage of independent India”
BJP Working President Shri JP Nadda said the Statue of Unity dedicated to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel has become a “source of inspiration” to all and that visiting it can be termed as a “pilgrimage of independent India”.
Shri Nadda visited the world’s tallest statue, located on an islet near the Narmada dam in Narmada district of Gujarat, on the last day of his two-day visit. This was his first visit to BJP-ruled Gujarat after assuming the charge as its Working President.
He said India could become a strong country because of Patel’s role as the first Home Minister in uniting 565 small and big princely states. “We cannot forget his sacrifice. This place is a source of inspiration for all of us.
