Jamshedpur: Senior BJP leader and former MLA of Jamshedpur West Saryu Roy Saturday said the proposed visit of BJP national president Amit Shah will be a milestone for the state BJP and will pave way for a new beginning of Jharkhand.
He said the party was ready to accord a warm welcome to the party’s national president Shah during his two-day visit to the state capital beginning tomorrow. A large number of party workers will be leaving for Ranchi, he added.
The visit has been scheduled early in view of the Assembly polls upcoming in the state, a party functionary said. The state BJP unit has already started preparations in this regard. The party held a manifesto committee meeting recently and decided that the manifesto for the upcoming polls would be prepared after taking suggestions from a cross section of society.
Shah, who will be visiting Jharkhand for the first time after becoming the BJP president, will extensively discuss a wide range of issues with party workers and Sangh Parivar leaders to chalk out strategy for the elections. On September 8, he will address a party workers’ meet at Prabhat Tara ground in Dhurwa.
Sources went on to add that Shah will be initiating measures to push forward BJP’s agenda on the basis of his interactions with Sangh Parivar members and party workers.
Shah’s visit to Jharkhand is considered significant considering the Assembly Election which is likely to be conducted later this year and the BJP’s effort to form a government on its own to steer the state on the path of development by reducing dependence on smaller regional parties.
“We are making preparations for Assembly elections for the last several months. Workers are busy strengthening party at booth-level. Several Union ministers and national level leaders have visited the state recently. Their visit is sure to ignite passion of party workers,” said the BJP leader.
Preparations for the party workers’ conference in Dhurwa include erecting water proof pandals at the venue, separate registration for people coming from different areas and a grand welcome to the BJP president upon his visit to Jharkhand.
