Vajpayee asks BJP workers to strive hard for victory in polls
Asserting that the NDA government's performance has impressed the people, Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on Wednesday asked BJP workers to strive hard single-mindedly to achieve victory in the forthcoming assembly polls in five states and in the 2004 parliamentary elections.
The atmosphere in the country is favourable for BJP and its allies... Let our entire army of workers go to the people with self-confidence and explain to them about our achievements in the past and about our vision for India, Vajpayee said inaugurating the brain storming session of BJP at Uttan in nearby Thane district, about 50 kms from Mumbai.
People have formed a good opinion about our party because of the work done by us in the past five years on diverse fronts. We have succeeded in giving a stable government, the prime minister told BJP's Chintan Bhaitak.
The government's fight against cross-border terrorism was becoming effective, Vajpayee said adding BJP and NDA had grown in stature nationally and internationally.
However, contrary to the propaganda of adversaries, it is being widely perceived that we care for all sections of people and take all of them along with us, he said.
Our asset is the credibility that we have gained both before and after we came to power as a party that always works in the interest of the nation, the prime minister remarked.
It is this trust that has brought us this far, he added.
