Gangtok, 04 Aug:
The BJP-Sikkim membership drive reached Kitam in South Sikkim today with a meeting chaired by BJP-Sikkim president, DB Chauhan, accompanied by BJP-Sikkim general secretary SB Karki, south and west district membership drive in-charges and other activists of the party.
While addressing the meeting, Mr Chauhan appealed to people across party lines to take BJP membership.
“People need to analyse the schemes to uplift the underprivileged as well as developmental works done by the Modi government in past five years. More than 130 welfare and developmental schemes have been launched by the NDA govt, which, if implemented properly, will eradicate poverty and take India to new heights,” he said.
“The State BJP will put all efforts to take Sikkim at par with all other states, be it in development, peace or security of the Sikkimese people,” he added.
He stressed that the elections were now over and that people should not allow themselves to be divided on party lines.
“The five years till the next elections should be utilized for development of our society which is possible through unity,” he said.
