The BJP will have offices in all districts of the country by December 2018, party president Amit Shah said on Sunday.
“BJP has resolved to have functioning party offices in every district in the country before December 2018. We may have started late but the pace has picked up,” Shah said at a function in south Goa’s Margao town after inaugurating the new premises of the BJP’s South Goa district headquarters.
“BJP workers are the focal point of the party’s journey from the Jan Sangh till now. The party’s existence is through the smallest of the booth-level cadre,” Shah said.
“The party office is not less than a temple for the workers. This is the place where planning is done based on which the party marches ahead. That is why BJP has decided that each district will have party office across the country by December 2018,” added the BJP chief.
The BJP president, who arrived in Goa on a two-day visit on Saturday, said Goa has the potential to be a model state, which could be emulated by other Indian states.
“Goa may be small but the potential is big. Goa should be a model state for the rest of the country. It can be a fully developed state,” Shah said.
Hailing the Manohar Parrikar-led Goa government, Shah said “when a BJP government is formed in any state, it is not just change in power but also change in the systems”.
“Goa is an apt example. Five years back, BJP came into power and we are now elected again. Goa has been witnessing tremendous progress since the time BJP came to power in the state,” he said.
According to Shah, along with development, Parrikar has also given a government which has eradicated corruption. “Parrikar has given a government with transparency,” he said.
