Jammu: BJP on Wednesday asked its cadres in Jammu and Kashmir to work for strengthening the nationalist forces in the state so that the elements working against the integrity of the country are defeated.
"Party leaders should work for strengthening the nationalist forces in the state so that the elements working against the integrity of the country are defeated," BJP general secretary Ram Madhav said.
BJP national vice-president and Jammu and Kashmir in-charge Avinash Rai Khanna chaired a day-long meeting of state office-bearers, morcha presidents and district in-charges in Jammu.
Madhav, in his address, said that the coalition government in the state was formed to honour the mandate of the people despite ideological differences and it is indeed a matter of satisfaction that both the parties are working in unison to fulfil the promises made to the people.
He said that it is a development-centric government and its priorities are good governance and corruption-free administration.
The meeting discussed the present situation in the state, besides taking stock of the ongoing programmes of the party at different levels, as also the working of BJP coalition government in the state.
Khanna appreciated the efforts of BJP activists in Jammu and Kashmir for actively undertaking party programmes at different levels and serve as bridge between the party and the people.
He said that the party activists have to devote more time in reaching out to the masses and educate them about the projects like Swachch Bharat Abhiyan, Beti Bacho-Beti Padao, Namami Ganga and make it a public movement.
State BJP President Sat Sharma, while addressing the meeting, said that the BJP is in power in 13 states either on its own or in coalition and also at the Centre with two-third majority and the party has achieved these milestones due to the hard work put by its cadre.
