Unlike Faggan Singh Kulaste, who has expressed his displeasure over the post he has been offered in BJP national president Amit Shah’s team, vice-president Prabhat Jha, who has retained the same post, has no grudge.
"I am basically a party man. I try my best to discharge the duties assigned to me by the party," said Jha while talking to Hindustan Times during his visit to Bhopal.
Jha, who was appointed as vice-president a couple of days ago, was in Madhya Pradesh to canvass for the party in by-polls.
Notably, Kulaste in his talk with media persons, expressed his displeasure rather annoyance that neither was he inducted as a minister in Narendra Modi cabinet nor was he nominated as the state BJP president. He said he had served as the BJP national SC/ST front chairman for a long time and he needed some new work.
Refusing to comment on Kulaste's remarks, Jha, who has been state president too, said whatever he was, it was because of the party. He always believed in completing the task assigned to him by the party as a committed member and he would continue to do so.
Jha, who has been vice-president in Rajnath Singh's team too, said in reply to a question that the difference between the functioning of the old and the new team is that now the party was in power at the Centre, hence it had an added task now to propagate about the government’s achievements and good work.
He said Amit Shah wants to broaden the base of the party and hence as a team leader it is his duty to contribute to his mission to strengthen the party. In the assembly polls in certain states, the party was definitely going to achieve major victory.
On the party's 'Achchhe din aane waale hain' slogan during Lok Sabha polls and growing expectation of people from Modi government, Jha said Modi's functioning had brought a definite change in the government which is visible in Delhi.
The Prime Minister's Independence Day maiden speech reflected his determination to bring about a definite change in the life of people in the entire country.
