BJP celebrates 38th Foundation day with 3 lakh Karyakartas

Modi's comment came on the day the Budget Session of Parliament ended with the second part completely disrupted in the wake of a deadlock between the government and the opposition whose no-confidence motion was not taken up for more than a fortnight. It is being seen now that it is turning more violent as well. This is not because we made a mistake. We are a Party that believes in India's diversity, our unique culture and, above all, the strengths of 125 crore Indians!

On the occasion of the sthapna diwas, Prime Minister Modi addressed the party workers and expressed his gratitude as he remembered the sacrifice and hardwork put in by karyakartas. He added: "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a President on our own strength, we elected a person belonging to the Dalit community. But today, we the Dalit MP's of BJP have to face our constituents and are unable to reply to their questions". He urged BJP Karyakartas to regularly use the various Government sites and the "Narendra Modi App" for latest news about the work of the Government. A "new India', he said, will provide all families a home and which will be without casteism and communalism. It is truly democratic and an only democratic political party can effectively serve a democratic nation", PM Modi in the video.

Speaking about the four years of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government, the Prime Minister said: "Our government is fully dedicated to the poor and this is also seen in the working of the various state governments of the BJP". It is not run on caste and family lines, and has a tradition of taking everyone along, he said. "In four years of rule, the BJP has worked tirelessly for the welfare of Dalits, underprivileged, illiterates", he said.

"Our golden period will come when we win Bengal and Odisha and retain power under the leadership of Narendra Modi in 2019 with a full majority", he said.

The decision to intermingle with party workers at the ground level also reflects Prime Minister's deep assurance and respect for the institution of party members. "The government is trying to reduce the prices". He said the party has brought a new hope for development of the country.
