“The BJP, the world’s largest political party, has dedicated itself to nation building with a spirit of service and dedication. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve the party. Prime minister Narendra Modi and national president of the party JP Nadda have once again reimposed their sincere devotion to the Northeast when they gave me an opportunity to serve the party at the highest policy-making bodies of the BJP, the central parliamentary board and the central election committee. I am committed to serving this responsibility with utmost dedication, commitment and sincerity,” minister Sarbananda Sonowal said.

The Union minister emphasised that the party has worked “tirelessly” for the welfare of the people.

“The party remains committed towards the development and progress of Northeast. The Asta Lakshmi of India, the Northeast has found a special place in the vision of our beloved leader PM Modi. His commitment to the people of the Northeast has resulted in a region free of bloodshed and a renewed vigour towards a better future. For the people of Assam and Northeast, BJP is the only party that respects their dreams and commits to turning them into reality with sheer hard work and commitment,” he added.
