New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday inaugurated the BJP's new headquarters in the national capital at 6, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg, in the presence of veteran leaders like LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.

Equipped with modern facilities, the headquarters' foundation stone was laid by Modi on 18 August 2016. It was constructed in a record time of one-and-half years.

With the inauguration, the Bharatiya Janata Party became the first major national party to shift its office outside the Lutyens' Bungalow Zone, following a Supreme Court directive that party offices should be relocated from there.

Addressing the gathering on the occasion, Modi said: "Ours was a journey that began with greats such as Dr Shyama Prasad Mookerjee and Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya. Generations of 'karyakartas' have given their lives for the party."

He said that the Jan Sangh and BJP leaders have been at the forefront of all leading mass movements after Independence.

"Ours is a party committed to rashtra bhakti. In thought, in action and in implementation, the BJP's core is truly democratic," the prime minister added.
