Avinash Rain Khanna, while welcoming the new entrants in the party fold said that it is the perfect blend of patriotism and professionalism on the part of BJP that is acting as a catalyst in the party growth. He said that the party is today able to pave way for the new Nation envisioned with the self-pride and self-determination that is quite evident by the perfectly timed decisions taken by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister & BJP National President Amit Shah. He said that abrogation of Article 370 has done away with all the mischief that was done to the great state in the past decades. Now there is right to vote for everyone in the state, and this is possible due to the party’s ideology of keeping the Nation at the 1st place by party activists. He said that the dream is seen by our predecessors of “Ek Vidhan, Ek Nishan, Ek Pradhan” has been fulfilled for the betterment of our future generations.
Ravinder Raina, while speaking on the occasion, said that the Congress always proved to the slave party ruled by one family only, and that is confirmed by their recent decision by again relying on Sonia Gandhi to lead the Congress party. He said that the Congress is not able to find any single leader out of the Nehru-Gandhi family and soon the time will come that Congress will not find even a single activist outside Nehru-Gandhi family. He said that Congress has handed us all lots of punishments for carrying “Tiranga” in J&K, but they have been taught a good lesson by masses. He expressed his confidence that the joining by these prominent persons will further strengthen the party.
