SRINAGAR: Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said more and more people in Jammu and Kashmir are getting associated with the party as they are convinced by the policies and programmes of Narendra Modi-led government at New Delhi.
“BJP is a party based on organisational structure. It was formed on certain principles and mission to serve the people unlike other political parties which came into existence for the purpose to acquire power and wealth through any means,” BJP state general secretary Ashok Koul said while addressing party activists in south Kashmir.
“It is BJP where even a booth or constituency level activist can be appointed as state president or national president whereas in other political parties, a member from particular family is promoted,” he said.
According to a statement issued here, BJP held a ‘Booth Sammelan’ at Awantipora area of Tral constituency in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district in which members of all the polling booths participated.
The ‘Booth Sammelan’ was chaired by Ashok Koul who while addressing the gathering emphasised on the importance of effective working by booth activists for the growth and extension of the party.
He stressed on party workers to focus towards extending their reach to hearts of local population on every single booth. “No booth should remain untouched by BJP activists who must acquaint themselves with all the public welfare schemes initiated by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre,” Koul according to statement said.
He said BJP has worked on the core agenda of development and e-governance while particularly touching all the neglected areas and sections of the society. He said ULB and Panchayat elections are directly beneficial for general public as it strengthens democratic setup at grassroots level and by this institution, developmental activities reach to common masses.
Ashok Koul urged BJP activists to work wholeheartedly and ensure the victory of party candidates in ULB and Panchayat elections.
