The Punjab BJP has given a sound and clear message to its executive leadership in the state 'to make the most from the party-friendly atmosphere' in the state and put in hard work in order to ensure a 'bright' future for the party in the next assembly polls.
"The political atmosphere of Punjab is suited to the party's success and people are seeing a new ray of hope in the BJP, especially in the policies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It's a never before opportunity for us where we can move ahead in Punjab and can create history by strengthening our base and increasing our power here," said Kamal Sharma, in his inaugural address in the state executive meeting, on Friday, where the media was also present.
Sharma told party workers that party high command was closely monitoring the political developments in the state and were taking "day-to-day" feedback on and suggestions on strengthening the party's base in the state.
"It is because of our increasing popularity that our membership has crossed more than 9 lakh in Punjab, from around 3.5 lakh around six years ago. Voters are enthusiastic about joining the party and we hope to cross our target of 21 lakh voters by the deadline of March 31, 2015. Let us work together to make the most from this scenario, where the BJP is seen as the best option to again bring back the state track," national secretary Tarun Chugh told workers in another closed-door meeting.
The state executive also decided to launch a special awareness drive, beginning next week, targeting the youth for Amit Shah's January 22 rally in Amritsar.
Under this awareness drive, party workers will run special campaigns in schools, colleges and other institutes across the state and exhort the youth to attend the rally, where the BJP had targeted a gathering of around 1 lakh.
