BJP national president Amit Shah on Wednesday asked party workers to strengthen what he called the “world’s largest democratic party” at the grassroots level and work for the mission-2019 with fresh zeal.

Shah, who is on a three-day visit to Rohtak to review preparations for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, presided over his first meeting of the day with district presidents, zila mahamantris and office-bearers of the BJP, chairmen of boards and corporations, and state cabinet led by chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

Addressing the office-bearers, Shah stressed on launching intensive door-to-door campaigns to inform all sections of the society about schemes and policies initiated by the government in Centre and state.

He said the BJP government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has introduced 106 schemes in the country for youths, farmers, women and labourers. “We introduced a new scheme in every 15 days of our government for the welfare of the people. It is utmost important that these schemes reach their beneficiaries as well,” Shah said.

The BJP president was received with much fanfare in Haryana, right from Delhi-Haryana border upto Tilyar Convention Centre in Rohtak, where he chaired his meetings for Wednesday. Thousands came on road to welcome Shah with flowers. CM Khattar and BJP state president Subhash Barala welcomed him with turban (pagdi). Agriculture minister OP Dhankar then welcomed him with a mace (gada).

Tight security, using drone cameras, is being used by the police force. The BJP has also prepared special traditional food items for Shah, which include monsoon speciality ghevar, Hansi peda, etc. Traditional Teej dance and folk music programmes for the BJP chief is also on the cards.

Shah, who chaired multiple meetings on Day one here, also took veiled attack at former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda. At his meeting with intellectuals and eminent citizens, Shah praised CM Khattar for trying to revolutionise politics in the state. “Earlier, only relatives and close associates of the politicians used to get jobs and plum posts. But Khattar government has brought transparency in recruitments and transfers. He is doing a great job in keeping Haryana politics clean,” Shah said.

The BJP chief will remain in Rohtak till August 4, and have lunch with a Dalit partymen as well.
