Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu on October 31 asserted that the Bharatiya Janata Party’s ideology, ideals and values should reach the grassroots and so must all schemes and programmes of the central and state governments.
Attending BJP state unit’s one-day ‘training of trainers’ programme in Itanagar, Khandu said that the veteran party workers and legislators have the prime responsibilities to spread the words of achievements made by the governments since it came to power at the Centre as well as in the state.
Reiterating that Arunachal Pradesh is a unique state demographically, Khandu stressed that pan-Arunachal attitude should be adopted by party workers and take along each community and region on the path of progress.
“Training refreshes our focus and rejuvenates our ideologies. It’s also renews our enthusiasm to achieve goals in line with our ideals and values,” he said.
Underscoring the significance of discipline in the party, Khandu said, “we are lucky that we are in a party, which is known for its discipline. We must live up to our party ideals and values. Only then we will be able to serve society and usher development.”
“Only a party like BJP can change the wheels of fortune in a state like ours. Therefore, we need to strengthen our party’s foundation in the state so that Arunachal can progress at a faster pace on the right direction,” he said.
Hinting at local rural and urban body elections to be held soon, the CM said these local government bodies are of extreme importance for grassroot level development.
He assured that the government will further strengthen the local bodies and will endorse them with powers so far denied.
“With BJP in power, expectations of people have soared high. It is our responsibility to synchronize and deliver. Be it of the government or the party, our goals are same – to bring development with rule of law. We have no other option but to meet the people’s expectations,” Khandu added.
