Expressing happiness over the growing BJP membership in West Bengal, party chief Amit Shah on Tuesday asserted that this “workforce” would defeat the Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress in the state.

Addressing the ‘Maha-sampark Abhiyan’ in the twin city of Howrah, Shah urged party workers for building a strong organisation to enable the Bharatiya Janata Party to govern from panchayat to parliament.

“He expressed happiness at the growing number of party members and asserted this workforce would defeat Banerjee and her Trinamool in Bengal,” party national secretary S.N.Singh told media persons.

The BJP president also said that “until the details of all 11 crore members are stored in the BJP database and the party’s ideology is etched in their hearts, the hard work achieved will go waste.”

“We all need to focus on reaching out to the members through the abhiyan. We will train 15 lakh workers for building a strong organization which will help the party in election machinery and also the key ideology of party of building strong India,” Shah was quoted as saying in a party release.

“With the help of strong organization, we will be able to govern right from panchayat to parliament,” he said.

The BJP chief also asserted the trained workforce was not “a demonic force” like the Trinamool but “a nationalist force that would contribute towards nation building”.

Listing the “24” Narendra Modi government schemes including the likes of Jan-Dhan, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao et al, Shah asked the party workers to spread awareness of the schemes among the common masses and reach out to them.

Party activists and leaders from West Bengal, Odisha, Jharkhand, Sikkim and Andaman and Nicobar Islands, attended the meet.

Among the leaders present were Arjun Munda, Ram Lal and Babul Supriyo among others.

Shah also held meetings with leaders from the various eastern states to chalk out plans for the party’s growth in the region.

Interacting with media persons, party leader Arun Singh said the eastern region membership has grown 5-15 percent in the last one year.

“Our aim is not to just increase the party membership or to stay in power. Our aim is to build a nationalist force that will work towards nation and society building,” he said.

It is too disgusting that Shiv Sena is aiming for something which was nothing but an act of betrayal. Here the principles and ethos of the party are just sacrificed. The “chair” of Chief Minister is what the individual parties in Maharashtra are wanting so badly. And for this only Shiv Sena has severed its ties with its all-time ally BJP which emerged with the largest number of MLAs. Is it not the BJP with which Sena made the alliance before the election? Why so much bitter feelings after the poll result? Many past elections were fought on this mutual understanding. Sena had always taken pride and bragged about its power and clout as because the BJP was behind it. But now very contrary equation and chemistry are on display. NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena are sharing the ideas as opposed to the expectation of the whole electorate.

Democracy
Politics in India might lead to a sinking democracy.

One believes it’s Congress and its High common which Shiv Sena Supremo Late Bal Thackeray always disliked and ruthlessly held them up to ridicule. It was because they hold the opposing ideologies. But now his son Uddhav Thackeray kneeled down and sought the helping hand of those rival camps to walk the party through for the chair of Chief Minister. Going by the flood of comments on the social media, this party has ostensibly fallen from the grace. BJP is not a holy cow either. It is equally good at flexes its muscles for the power.

While Maharashtra is already under the president rule, the NCP and Congress now exploring all possible means to back Shiv Sena.   Uddhav Thackeray only wants to see his son Aditya Thackeray being the Chief Minister of one of the riches states in the country. The trend is not at all healthy. Here everything is utterly clear that the cherished values of democracy in India are fast eroding. Majority of the states in the country, only the “particularly families” are  always standing up to rule the roost. This is a bigger threat to the fundamental values of the country.The NATION is no more controlled by the government of the people, nor is it for the people. It is the government of the particular families which is formed for the fulfillment of the low greed and narrow aspiration of those particular families. Lastly, it is the common people who are always at the receiving end of the leaders’ whims and tantrums. Phew, the country is not at all in the safe hands.
