NAINITAL: The two-day BJP state working committee meeting concluded here on Sunday with a resolve to work for the betterment of poor and downtrodden sections of the society.
It was also decided that the next working committee meeting would be held on July 25-26 in Haridwar.
Party state unit president Ajay Bhatt said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was requested to be present during the opening of the portals of the Kedarnath temple on May 3.
He said BJP national president Amit Shah might visit Uttarakhand in August.
BJP general secretary Gajraj Singh Bisht said the party’s training camp for functionaries would be held in Badrinath on June 24, 25 and 26.
The first day of the meeting saw a heated exchange among some activists, who accused each other of working against the party line in the recently concluded assembly elections.
Former chief minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ shed light on the life and works of party ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyay and urged people to follow his ideals of helping the downtrodden.
Many political resolutions had been passed on the first day of the working committee meeting which included ratification of the reforms being carried out by the Central and the state governments such as removal of red beacon lights, GST Act, homes to the poor under the PM Housing scheme, the Lokayukta Act, Passport service centres at Nainital and Haldwani, opening of 100 Jan Aushadhi Kendras, and action in the NH 74 land use change scam.
The last day, however, saw discussions on mainly the agenda for the next three months for the party. It was attended by the ministers.
