Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday asked the BJP workers to reach out to the needy people in the State and ensure benefits of welfare schemes reach each eligible beneficiary.
The Chief Minister was addressing the Haryana BJP state council meeting, which was held at Tau Devi Lal Stadium, Panchkula.
The state party council meeting was held after a gap of 39 years. The last such meeting was held in 1982 in Narwana, Hisar which was also attended by former Prime Minister late Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
While addressing the party leaders and workers from across the state, the Chief Minister said that today, the BJP has a Government at the Centre and in the state, so the responsibility is more on all of us. Both the Central and State Government is working on the principle of Antyodaya. We are aiming to ensure the upliftment of the last person standing in a queue and belonging to any section of the society, he said.
Slamming Congress and Indian National Lok Dal, Khattar said that the previous governments in the state had created such an atmosphere that only political people and their families had power revolving around them. Things changed when the BJP came to power in Haryana. The party has a sense of service and is fulfilling its responsibilities after coming to power in the state, he said.
The Chief Minister further said that about 580 schemes of the Centre and the State Government have been introduced for the poor section of the society, but sometimes, some eligible people are deprived of taking advantage of them. The party has a responsibility to ensure that no poor family is left out of the benefits of the government's schemes, he said while calling upon the party workers to work in this direction.
BJP state president OP Dhankar, Union Minister Parshottam Rupala, Union Minister Bhupendra Yadav, Union Minister of State Rao Inderjit Singh, state BJP in-charge Vinod Tawde among other leaders were present on the occasion. The state Cabinet Ministers from the BJP also attended the meeting.
Speaking on the occasion, the state BJP chief OP Dhankar said that the council meeting is dedicated to the Amrit Mahotsav of Independence. He asked the party workers to organize programmes in memory of martyrs at all the places associated with them and make today's young generation aware of their sacrifice.
He said that the Kisan Morcha of the party should go to the villages of the martyrs, the Yuva Morcha should take out cycle yatra in their memory, the Mahila Morcha should pay tribute to them by lighting lamps at the places of their sacrifice and other Morchas of the party should also contribute in such programmes.
Dhankhar said that on the completion of seven years of BJP’s Government tenure which also includes two years of BJP-JJP coalition government in the state, 70000 BJP workers will reach out to the home of seven lakh families till October 27 to apprize them about the achievements of the ruling dispensation.
During the meeting, resolutions were also passed appreciating the achievements of seven years tenure of BJP Government in Haryana.
