Imphal, June 27, 2021: Following the appointment of new president of BJP Manipur Unit, the Rajya Sabha MP Leishemba Sanajaoba has appealed all to concentrate on discharging assigned duties and help establish a more resolute Government next year.
Speaking during the felicitation programme of the new chief of State BJP, Adhikarimayum Sharda Devi today at the party’s head office at Nityaipat Chuthek, the Rajya Sabha MP said that the National leaders are worthy of applause for their choice.
By handing over such a crucial post to a deserving personality, the National leaders have yet again displayed what women empowerment actually should looks like, he said.
The State though small, is surrounded by numerous issues and women have been at the forefront in fighting against almost all the issues, he said while adding that the National BJP leaders have rightfully given the post to a woman and bestowed opportunity to women folks to work closely for a more safer and healthier environment.
Expressing belief that the new president will help create a more viable platform for co-operation between the party and the State Government, the MP also expressed hope that all the party workers will follow the footstep of the new leader.
He also exuded confidence that the new party president will successfully strengthen the party from the grassroots level and manage a good relationship with party functionaries, workers and set a new benchmark.
As envisioned by the former State BJP president to have at least 40 BJP MLAs in the State Assembly, the new BJP president is also expected towards achieving the target, said the MP with optimism.
He also called on all party workers to join hands and work to their fullest under the guidance of the new leader and prepare for the next hurdle.
Speaking at the occasion, the newly appointed State BJP president Sharda Devi also shared that she is the third to hold such post in the party’s history.
The National leaders may have appointed her for the presidential post as the party is very much focused on empowering women and has also been providing room for women in electoral politics since 1995, said Sharda.
The NDA Government is very much committed to develop North East States and the welfare and development schemes executed are the testimony of it, said Sharda who was of the opinion that the post was not assigned to her but to the whole Manipur women.
Youth and women are the chief support of a political party and why it would not be possible to cross the 40 seat mark when youth and women are well spirited and organised, she said while calling all the morchas to act and work responsibly right away.
Requesting all party workers and functionaries to refrain from doing anything that could court controversies and bring bad image to the party, Sharda also suggested that there should be no in-fighting within the party but fight boldly against other parties for the right cause.
Maintaining that the National leaders have accorded her a very big responsibility, Sharda also sought support from fellow party functionaries and organs.
She also appealed to all to strictly adhere to party principles.
The felicitation programme was also attended by general secretary organisation for Manipur and Nagaland State, Abhay Kumar Giri; BJP State Unit’s founder member and former presidents, M Bhorot and Sh Shantikumar; senior members, N Ibohal and Yumjao.
