PASIGHAT, Oct 10: With the Lok Sabha and Assembly Elections on the horizon, Arunachal Pradesh BJP is conducting its extended executive meeting with participation of national leaders, which has began at Pasighat town in East Siang district on Wednesday.
Attending the inaugural programme of the two-day meeting, BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav called on the party activist to work in election mode and act to root out opposition Congress from the state in next elections.
Saying that BJP is not leader centric, but an organization centric party, Madhav asked the party workers not to create conflict among the party for ticket to contest in elections. He sought contribution from the party activists to enable the party to sweep the next elections in the state with cent percent victory.
“We are eyeing on regaining power in the Centre in 2019 elections under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership and also putting attending towards ‘Platinum Jubilee’ celebration of Country’s 75 year of Independence”, said Ram Madhav, while exuding his hope to win 300 MP seats in 2019 parliamentary election and form the government for second consecutive time.
Ram Madhav observed that Arunachal government led by chief minister Pema Khandu has been making all out efforts to pave all round development, while per capita income of the state has increased up to Rs 1.5 lakh during his rule. He is choosing Pema as chief minister of the state for next term and optimistic that he would continue the trend of developmental activities.
Addressing the party workers, national BJP leader from Jammu & Kashmir, Ajoy Jamwal urged the party workers to put attention on party activities rather than seeking power as elected leaders. “Allotment of party ticket depends on one’s activities in the party, wining prospects and disciplinary conducts, which is assessed by a high power team comprising national leader, state presidents and chief ministers concerned”, he said.
Jamwal also suggested the party worker to pay door to door visit to woo the voters towards their party fold. He also urged them to organise ‘Beneficiary Sammelan’ in order to appraise them about various social welfare schemes initiated by the Central and State governments.
Arunachal Pradesh chief minister and deputy chief minister Chowna Mein also spoke on the meeting and mobilsed the party workers to tighten their belt for the ensuing elections.
Among others, State BJP president Tapir Gao along with state committee executives, former Arunachal chief minister Gegong Apang, BJP state council members, district presidents, mandal presidents with executives and a host of ministers and MLAs are participating the two-day meeting.
The second day meeting on Thursday includes interaction of the state BJP leaders with the mandal level workers.
