Training camp for BJP MLAs for ensuring good governance

Party insiders said the training camp would ensure that the Rawat Cabinet gets its first lessons in ensuring good governance and corruption–free administration. “Besides, those helming the government will be provided valuable tips on how to execute its policies in keeping with the party’s philosophy of ‘Antyodaya’,” BJP state general secretary Naresh Bansal said, referring to BJP icon Pandit Deendayal Upadhya’s idea of uplifting the poorest of the poor.

DEHRADUN: Chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, his nine Cabinet colleagues and BJP legislators will get ‘lessons’ in delivering good governance and ensuring corruption–free administration from party veterans at a two-day workshop beginning July 27 in Dehradun.

Apart from the   BJP’s top organisational leaders, some party veterans and central ministers are likely to address the training camp. It will also be attended by five BJP parliamentarians from Uttarakhand.

Union ministers Arun Jaitley, Venkaiah Naidu, Ravishankar Prasad and Mahesh Sharma are likely to attend the workshop . Top organisational leaders including BJP national general secretary (organisation) Ram Lal, his deputy Shiv Prakash and BJP state in-charge Shyam Jaju will be present at the training camp.

A four-day training camp for the BJP state office bearers was held here recently to ‘expose’ them to the party’s ideology. Subsequently, the BJP organised a series of training camps for the party cadres at the district, block and village levels.

However, the training camp for the BJP legislators and parliamentarians will be the first since the 10-member Trivendra Singh Rawat Cabinet was constituted after the government’s formation in March.

Party insiders said the training camp would ensure that the Rawat Cabinet gets its first lessons in ensuring good governance and corruption–free administration. “Besides, those helming the government will be provided valuable tips on how to execute its policies in keeping with the party’s philosophy of ‘Antyodaya’,” BJP state general secretary Naresh Bansal said, referring to BJP icon Pandit Deendayal Upadhya’s idea of uplifting the poorest of the poor.

The training’s most critical aspect would be to ensure that those helming the government deliver corruption-free services, he said. “That is a critical path but the only way to ensure that the government ensures uplift of the weakest section of the society. This is why our party invited veterans like Jaitley, Prasad and Sharma who not only built the party but are equally efficient in running the government.”

He added Rawat was strictly following the party philosophy of zero tolerance against corruption.

BJP state president Ajay Bhatt said the party legislators including those helming the government were basically “our cadres.” “However, they are now holding constitutional positions…They are being trained so that they are able to strike a balance between the government and the people. That is necessary so that the public is benefited by the government’s pro-poor and growth-oriented policies.”

Everybody in the party was aware that it has no place for those deviating from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policy of zero tolerance for corruption, Bhatt added.

BJP state general secretary Sanjay Kumar echoed similar sentiments. “Our top leaders will tell all legislators how to publicise the government’s polices among the people. Similarly, they will be provided tips to ensure that the government provides good governance and continues to give a corruption-free administration.”
