Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has transformed the country’s political culture by bringing his own interpretation to the word ‘power’. For Shri Narendra Modi, ‘power’ is not a means of enjoyment but a means to serve people, said BJP National Working President Shri J P Nadda while addressing a party Booth Presidents meeting in Dehradun, Uttarakhand on 15th November, 2019 during his first visit to the state after assuming office.
He said the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir was possible only due to the political will of PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji and strategy of Union Home Minister and BJP National President Shri Amit Shah Ji. Shri Nadda said by uprooting a “70-year-old cancer” within a month of coming to power for a second term, the Prime Minister has shown how a strong government works.
He said Parliament which did not function smoothly for even five consecutive days earlier has increased its productivity by 128 per cent under the Modi government.
Under the Modi government, 100 bills were introduced in the Parliament and 40 of them were passed, Shri Nadda added.
Speaking to the BJP Booth Presidents he said abrogation of the provisions of Article 370 had paved the way for implementation of 106 central laws, including Prevention of Corruption and the POCSO acts in Jammu and Kashmir. He further added that people in Jammu and Kashmir were happy with the abrogation of Article 370, and it was reflected in BJP’s impressive performance in the Panchayat BDC polls in which BJP had won 81 seats.
It has also paved the way for political reservation for tribals in Jammu and Kashmir including Gujjar Bakarwals who can now be elected to legislatures including Vidhan Sabha and Lok Sabha, he said.
On the growing strength of the BJP, he said it had rewritten its own record of being the largest party in the world with 17 crore members. “Within just 54 days we have broken our own record by adding 6 crore more members and increasing our strength from 11 crore to 17 crore,” he said.
The BJP National Working President said out of 59 political parties which are recognized by the Election Commission, BJP is the only party which has true internal democracy. “BJP is the only party which does not suffer from the family syndrome. It is not run by the homes of leaders but by the power of our workers,” he said.
Among others Uttarakhand Chief Minister Shri Trivendra Singh Rawat, BJP State President Shri Ajay Bhatt and other senior leaders of the party were present on the occassion.
