Activists of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) took out a victory procession from Hamirpur to Samirpur, the native village of former chief minister and senior BJP leader Prem Kumar Dhumal, on Monday.
The procession was led by Narendra Atri, BJYM in charge for Punjab, and Rakesh Pal Soharu, general secretary of the district unit of the party.
They were also joined by party activists from Sujanpur, who were led by Rakesh Thakur, Sujanpur mandal chief of the party, who met them at Touni Devi chowk.
They raised slogans in favour of the party and danced in joy over the party's resounding victory in four states.
Since chief minister Virbhadra Singh was addressing a public meeting at Touni Devi when this procession was going through there, the police intercepted the procession and allowed them to move in different groups so as to avoid traffic jam on the main road from Hamirpur to Awah Devi.
At Samirpur, Dhumal thanked the workers for coming to his residence in a procession and said the party had won the semi-final round of the next Lok Sabha elections. He said the party would sweep the next Lok Sabha polls and the people of the country were highly dejected with the performance of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre.
Dhumal said a pro-BJP wave was discernible all over India and Narendra Modi would be the next Prime Minister. The BJP leader said it was due to the projection of Namo that now the Congress had also decided to announce the name of its prime ministerial candidate.
He, however, asked the party leaders and activists not to be overconfident about their success in other states and fan out in villages in the state to expose the real face of the Congress as well as the policies and progrmames of the BJP among the masses.
