Ananth asks workers to gear up for polls

india Updated: Nov 22, 2006 18:08 IST

BJP GENERAL secretary Anant Kumar on Tuesday asked party workers to gear up for the assembly elections in 2008 to ensure a second-term for the party in the State.

Addressing a party meeting after the election of Narendra Singh Tomar as the next State unit chief, Ananth Kumar, who is also in charge of the party’s state affairs, exhorted the workers to set an example by returning the party to power and prove that the BJP could form governments in other states and the Centre.

He asked them to be fully prepared to face the challenge for the Pandhana Assembly by-elections and replicate the victory secured in the Vidisha Lok Sabha and the Malehra Assembly by-elections.

Explaining the ‘mantra’ for success, he said the BJP could achieve thumping victory through “people-oriented government” and “worker-oriented organisation.”

Besides, former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ‘mantra’ of ‘Teji se vikas, sabke liye vikas aur samagra vikas’ (speedy development, development for all and overall development)” needs to be followed,” he said.

The BJP leader praised the work done by the State government in road, power, water, health and education sectors and said it will enable party workers to reach public.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, BJP general secretaries Omprakash Mathur and Thawarchand Gehlot, party vice-president Sumitra Mahajan, and former CMs Sunderlal Patwa and Kailash Joshi also urged the party workers to work for the Assembly elections.

Chouhan said the State had been put into the category of developing state and would be placed into the category of developed state in the next two years. He lauded Tomar for his excellent work and hoped he will continue to work in the same manner for the organisation.
