BJP eyes 5 lakh membership before polls
Kohima, June 6 (EMN): BJP Nagaland Unit president Visasolie Lhoungu
today said the party has 1.5 lakh registered members in the State and exuded confidence to enrol 5 lakh more memberships before the forthcoming State assembly elections.
Launching the party’s ‘Great Membership Drive’ for Nagaland at the BJP Kohima unit office on Tuesday, Lhoungu said the membership drive would continue till June 25. He explained that there was no registration fee and anyone wanting to register for membership would be required to only give a ‘miss call’ to a toll free number 18002661001 without having to fill up any forms.
In his brief address, the State BJP president claimed that the BJP government at the Centre under Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched various pro-poor schemes and programmes. He, however, stated that those benefits have not reached the targeted people at grassroots levels in Nagaland.
Stating that the party is striving to come to power in the 2018 State elections, Lhoungu added that if it succeeded, that party would ensure that all the pro-poor programmes reached the actual beneficiaries.
“We (BJP Nagaland) will carry forward equal development and create equal opportunity throughout the state,” he stated.
Asserting that peoples’ needs, hopes and aspirations are the priority of the BJP, Lhoungu has reminded the party functionaries that the vision and policy of Prime Minister Modi is to make the government dedicated to the poor, the youth, farmers and the weaker sections of the society.
