AM­RIT­SAR: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) na­tional pres­i­dent Amit Shah will ad­dress the party rank and file in the city on Fe­bru­ary 24, Pun­jab party pres­i­dent and Ra­jya Sabha mem­ber Shwait Ma­lik said on Sun­day.

“The party na­tional pres­i­dent will be in the city to en­cour­age the heads of Shakti Ken­dras, small bod­ies com­pris­ing our work­ers, and mo­bilise them for the par­lia­men­tary elec­tions,” Ma­lik said.

He added that each Shakti Ken­dra had been made re­spon­si­ble for five polling booths for the Lok Sabha elec­tions.

“We are gear­ing up for the elec­tions in an or­gan­ised way. Of­fice-bear­ers of the party’s Pun­jab unit will also ad­dress the con­fer­ence with Shah,” Ma­lik added.

To en­sure that the con­fer­ence was well-at­tended, Ma­lik ad­dressed meet­ings of party work­ers at Pathankot, Hoshiarpur and Muk­e­rian. Other se­nior state party lead­ers also ad­dressed the meet­ings. These in­cluded Union min­is­ter of state Vi­jay Sam­pla; na­tional vi­cepres­i­dent of party Av­inash Rai Khanna; for­mer state vice-pres­i­dent Ash­wani Sharma, state gen­eral sec­re­tary Rakesh Rathour, state vice-pres­i­dent Narinder Par­mar; state sec­re­tary Sub­hash Sharma and state spokesper­son Ra­jesh Honey.

“Un­like the Con­gress, which is run with money power, the BJP is run by work­ers, who are given proper re­spect in this party. The count of our work­ers is now 11 crore. Go­ing by its strength, this is the largest worker-based party in the world,” claimed Ma­lik, in his ad­dress at the meet­ings.
