Work as bridge of faith for common man, PM Modi tells party workers


NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked BJP workers to reach out to the people and work as a "bridge of faith" for the common man.

At his address at the concluding session of day-long BJP national executive meet at NDMC Convention Centre here, he also highlighted that today the place that the BJP is at is due to the fact that it has always been connected with the common man since its starting days, and has moved ahead with hard work and dedication of workers, Union Minister Bhupender Yadav said.

"Prime Minister said that BJP workers have to become a bridge of faith for the common man. BJP is not a family-based party.

"The Prime Minister also called service to people is the highest form of worship and advised workers to be with the people and stay in touch with common man," he added.

Sources said that Modi advised BJP leaders to focus on the issues the party has raised for the people during and before and after elections and to continue doing so. "We must continue to address the issues concerning people," he said, as per the sources.

Referring to "selfless service" of BJP workers during the pandemic, Modi said that a "new culture of service has been demonstrated by the 'karyakartas' during the pandemic under party chief J.P. Nadda".

Before the Prime Minister's address, state presidents of five poll-bound states presented a report about their preparedness, and the Punjab chief said that they were gearing up to contest all 117 seats. Chief Ministers of poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, and Manipur also present a report card about their works.

"After hearing the reports of state Presidents and Chief Minister of poll-bound five states, the Prime Minister said that seeing the confidence, BJP will perform exceptionally well and this is beauty of service," Yadav said.

He also said that the state chiefs and Chief Ministers have derived this confidence from work they have done for their states in the past five years, Yadav added.

Gearing up for the 2022 Assembly polls and next general election, the BJP has decided to complete the formation of booth committees at over 10 lakh polling stations across the country by year end.

Addressing the inaugural session, party chief JP Nadda set the target to complete the process of forming the booth committees.

Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that to strengthen the party at ground level chief Nadda has asked to complete the formation of the committees by December 25.

"Formation of booth committees have been completed in 85 per cent of polling booths and remaining work will be completed by December 25," Pradhan said.

The party has also decided to implement the successful 'page committee' concept of Gujarat across the country.

"Page committee will be formed across the country and appointment of 'Panna Pramukh' will be completed by April 6, next year," Pradhan said

He said that Nadda also asked for an institutionalised mechanism to listen to the Prime Minister's 'Mann ki Baat' radio programme at each polling booth.

"Party chief talked about three works to strengthen the organisation at ground level as BJP has yet to reach its 'Utkarsh' (peak)," he said.

Nadda also talked about election results and said that BJP's victory in Huzurabad shows it's rise in Telangana.

"Nadda also said that BJP is getting strong in Andhra Pradesh and Odisha to win the next elections," Pradhan said.

In his address, Nadda thanked the people of West Bengal who supported the BJP in this year's Assembly polls.

"In the 2016 Assembly polls, the BJP's vote share was negligible, now it's 38 per cent. We have got the blessings of Bengal. In political history, such rapid growth in vote share has never been registered. the BJP chief assured people of West Bengal that the party is with them," Pradhan said.

Pradhan added that Nadda in his address also mentioned about the repeal of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, which is now on the path of development under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah.
