Agartala, July 14: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) received a resounding wave of support today as a staggering 472 voters from 154 families embraced the party in the presence of Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha.
Taking part in separate organizational programs organized by the Shantirbazar, Jolaibari, and Manu BJP Mandal Committees in South District, Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha criticized Congress leaders for frequently changing parties. He compared the role of those leaders to the life cycle of a cockroach. Additionally, he urged party functionaries to secure a larger margin of votes and present two lotuses to Prime Minister Narendra Modi by winning BJP candidates in the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
While addressing the party functionaries in the meeting today, Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha criticized the statement made by MLA Sudip Roy Barman, who claimed that after 2023, a microscope would be needed to find the Bharatiya Janata Party in Tripura.
“But the people have supported this party. Once again, the BJP has come to power in the state by the people’s verdict. This has been made possible through the tireless work of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, party All India President JP Nadda, and other Karyakartas,” said the Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister expressed satisfaction with the results in Shantirbazar and Jolaibari but directed the Karyakartas to analyze the reasons behind losing the winning seats, including Belonia and Sabroom Assembly Constituencies. He emphasized the need for more discussions on these issues during the organizational meeting.
“A closer relationship should be established with the public. More support must be sought from the people. The 2024 Lok Sabha elections are ahead, and it is our duty and responsibility to ensure the victory of party candidates in both Lok Sabha constituencies with more votes than last time. We must think about how we can strengthen our relationship with the people,” stated the Chief Minister.
He also criticized the previous governments of the state, particularly the CPIM and Congress, and urged party functionaries to explain to the people why some individuals who were previously in the BJP have now joined the Congress and for what purpose.
On this day, the Chief Minister called upon officials to raise awareness among the people about the implementation of various people-oriented projects sponsored by the central and state governments. He emphasized the importance of conducting door-to-door campaigns to build relationships with people.
“We believe in deeds more than words. Our party talks less and works more for the development of the state. Under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we have undertaken development projects across the state. There are many plans for the state this year as well. We are emphasizing infrastructure development to attract investors from other states. Our government has increased DA for employees since coming to power. These efforts are proof of how our government is working for the people. Additionally, super specialty hospitals have been introduced to provide quality healthcare to the citizens of the state. It is not possible to accomplish everything in just one year. Therefore, this government’s efforts will continue in the future,” said Dr. Saha.
After Shantirbazar, the Chief Minister participated in the BJP program at Jolaibari. He spoke at the organizational meeting organized by Jolaibari Mandal at the local community hall, where he also inaugurated the new building of the BJP Jolaibari Mandal Committee.
The Chief Minister emphasized that support is built on relationships, and all the functionaries of the Bharatiya Janata Party are working in this direction. He expressed confidence that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s victory could be ensured in the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections with more public support than before.
During the Chief Minister’s visit, a total of 472 voters from 154 families joined the BJP in Shantirbazar, Jolaibari, and Manu. Cooperative Minister Shuklacharan Noatia, former MLA Shankar Roy, BJP state secretary Papiya Dutta, and other leaders were present in the meeting.
