Stating that Goa was heading towards becoming a model state in terms of development, Shah said that the Narendra Modi government at the centre has strengthened the state’s infrastructural development projects like roads, bridges, fishing jetties etc, by flushing it with necessary funds.
Shah made these statements while addressing the audience after inaugurating the party’s South Goa district office at Margao.
Shah said that the BJP has decided to have its offices in all districts by 2018 with a view to increasing the party’s outreach activities.
“The growth of the party translates into good governance of the nation. For, when BJP comes to power in any state, it is not just a change in power that happens, but it’s the entire system that gets changed. And Goa is an excellent example of such parivartan,” Shah said.
Obviously aware of the disenchantment that has gripped BJP workers following circumstances that led to the formation of a coalition government, Shah laced his speech with a pep talk to the party cadre.
“BJP is one party where every worker associated with it just like his family. This differentiates it from other political parties. In the BJP’s journey since its Jana Sangh days until now, the ordinary karyakarta has been its focal point. In all other parties, the focus is on their leaders. The BJP, however, owes its existence to even the smallest worker of a smallest booth,” Shah said.
South Goa MP Narendra Sawaikar also spoke on the occasion.
