Sitamarhi (Bihar), May 08: Union Minister and BJP National Executive Member, Dr Jitendra Singh Sunday said here that BharatiyaJanata Party (BJP) under Prime Minister NarendraModi has sought to introduce a new political culture in the country, rising above considerations of vote bank politics or subjective preferences.
The latest evidence of this, he said, is that, “I am today on a visit to this lesser known, remote district of Sitamarhi, which was included as an Aspirational District, purely on the consideration that it deserved a special attention for its growth and development in certain sectors, which it was not given by the earlier governments and the earlier ruling parties."
Addressing a meeting of BJP party workers here, before leaving for the national capital, Dr Jitendra Singh said, those who have joined the BJP party ranks only in recent years, may not be able to imagine that there were times when the government officials and State functionaries preferred to maintain an arm’s length distance from BJP Karyakartas because otherwise they could invite displeasure of their ruling bosses who invariably belonged to the Congress Party and its allies. BJP Karyakarta had to go through a protracted struggle of several decades before he could achieve a position of esteem and the irony is that those of his opponents who earlier mocked him as a member of “Danda- Jhanda Party” are today eager to join the same BJP party and carry the BJP "Jhanda", he said.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, while Modi has vindicated Syama Prasad Mookerjee’s dream of BJP being a truly democratic party suited to the requirements of post-independence India, it was the sacrifices of three generations of BJP Karyakartas, which enabled the party to survive over the last seven decades before emerging as the world’s largest political party under the able organisational leadership of party presidents like Amit Shah and J P Nadda.
