“The drive assumes significance as the Assembly elections are going to be held in Delhi in next six months.

We are confident that we will achieve the target for enrolling new member and strengthen the party, which will prove to be a milestone in ensuring the party’s victory in the election,” the BJP leader.

On Saturday, the Delhi BJP celebrated the birth anniversary of party’s ideologue Shyama Prasad Mukherjee in which senior party leaders, including national general secretary (organisation) Ramlal, also participated in a party event near Kotla.

Addressing the BJP workers, Ramlal said Mukherjee was not only a nationalist but he also sacrificed his entire life for the unity and integrity of the country.

“On this occasion, all of us should pledge that we will end the anti national thinking from his native state which was opposed to Mukherjee,” Ramlal said. 

A large part of Kashmir is under the occupation of Pakistan due to the mistakes committed by Jawahar Lal Nehru, he said, adding that the Congress always did the politics of splitting the country. 

“We believe in taking all together. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee wanted to make Jammu-Kashmir integral part of India. At that time, Jammu-Kashmir had separate flag and separate Constitution,” he said.  

Mukherjee was not only a nationalist but he also sacrificed his entire life for the unity and integrity of the country, the senior BJP leader told party workers.
