Nadda unveils foundation virtually, CM attends Bhumi Pujan
The Bharatiya Janata Party national president JP Nadda virtually unveiled the foundation stone for the party’s new state office here on Saturday. The BJP state president Banshidhar Bhagat, chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat and others participated in the Bhumi Pujan held on the occasion at the Ring Road.
Speaking on the occasion, Nadda recalled his closed connection to Uttarakhand. He said that all facilities will be taken care of in the party’s new office. Requirements for media, social media and digital library will also be addressed. He said, “One major difference between the BJP and other parties is that for us the party is the family but in the other case, the family is the party.” Pointing at the importance of the party office, he said that during the Covid-19 pandemic, the party had successfully conducted its virtual rallies from its existing office. Referring to the importance of the digital and social media he said that in the coming times, the party will also create WhatsApp groups at the booth level.
Addressing the gathering on the occasion, the chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said that the party’s new state office will display the culture and traditional architecture of Uttarakhand. He said, “Since forming our government, we have made an effort to revive the utilisation of local resources and traditional architectural styles. Provisions have also been made by the government to encourage people to adopt the traditional architectural styles which will not only benefit them but also provide employment to numerous craftsmen and artisans while lending a unique traditional identity to the buildings.” Rawat further said that during events at the existing state office of the party at Balbir Road, the locals face inconvenience in movement. Stating that though the locals had not complained about this the CM apologised to them for the inconvenience. Due to limited space, even the party workers used to face difficulties. However, the party’s new office will be ready in a year which will prove considerably beneficial to the party members while also resolving the inconvenience faced by residents of Balbir Road.
The BJP state president Banshidhar Bhagat said that all aspects related to the party workers will be taken care of in the new office. The new office building will have seating capacity for 500 people, 55 rooms and four halls.
Union Education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, MPs Ajay Tamta, Ajay Bhatt, Anil Baluni and other office bearers of the party attended the event virtually from New Delhi. State minister Dhan Singh Rawat, MPs Teerath Singh Rawat, Mala Rajya Laxmi Shah and various office bearers were present at the event in Dehradun.
