Nadda inaugurates State BJP office at Kma


BJP national president JP Nadda virtually inaugurated Nagaland BJP office here on Monday evening in the presence of Union Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways and Ayush Sarbananda Sonowal, BJP national joint general secretary (Org) Shiv Prakash, BJP coordinator (NE) Sambit Patra, State BJP president and minister Temjen Imna Along and others.
Speaking on the occasion, Nadda, while congratulating State BJP leaders, including deputy chief minister Y Patton, legislators and party workers said the State BJP office was BJP’s 237th in the country to be inaugurated, while 153 more offices at State and district levels were under construction.
He mentioned that new office had full modern facilities and remarked that even districts should have offices.
He asserted that BJP was a political party that did not focus only on politics, but also on social service, climate change, health, education, etc.
He claimed BJP’s top priority was the country, followed by party and “self” came last. He mentioned that BJP’s ideology remained consistent for the past 71 years, even as other political parties changed their ideologies.
Further, citing the instance of State’s Rajya Sabha member S Phangnon Konyak, Nadda pointed out it was a perfect example of woman empowerment. He further claimed that Nagaland, home to 16 tribes, was witnessing rapid development under the coalition government.
He disclosed that the party had 3.32 lakh memberships in Nagaland and congratulated Patton, Along and party workers for taking interest in enrolling members, stressing that the party should expand.
As the target was 4 lakh active members, he urged party workers to work hard to achieve the target and even surpass it. He also appealed to people of Nagaland to join BJP for peace and prosperity.
The BJP president also reminded the karyakartas that they were the party’s ambassadors and the image of the party depended on them. He called for engaging individuals who could give sound advises on how to carry forward the party’s vision for the country and its people.
He pointed out that while other political parties were family-centric, BJP was a big family party and believed in inclusiveness. He emphasised involving members of every section of the society, irrespective of caste, creed or religion.
In his speech, union minister Sonowal congratulated Nagaland BJP leaders and party workers for the new office building, stating that it was a dream come true to have such an office.
He termed Nagaland as a gem of the country and stressed on making it a self-reliant State for a self-reliant India.
He also hailed Modi and his initiatives, noting that the developmental activities taking pace in the North-eastern States were witnessed by all, adding that Nagaland too was marching ahead in the path of development.
Sonowal accused Congress of totally neglecting the Northeast and claimed that Modi had prioritised development of the region.
He hoped that party leaders and workers would strive hard to increase membership, while also making the people aware of the various initiatives of the Central government led by Modi for the region.
In his address, Prakash urged the party workers to ensure maintenance of the new office building, noting that it also indicated expansion of the party in Nagaland. He remarked that if works were done based on three mantras of planning, execution and monitoring, then BJP would become stronger and could even become a ruling party in Nagaland.
And if BJP in Nagaland became stronger, he said the party could even form a government that would guarantee development, woman empowerment, security, etc.
Prakash stated that under the leadership of Modi, India was now being recognised and respected by the world. He claimed that the Northeast too was witnessing rapid development in the past few years under Modi’s rule, asserting that only BJP could lead the region to the path of development.
Along delivered a welcome address while Kevidezo Peter Rutsa proposed the vote of thanks.
