VISAKHAPATNAM: Asserting the commitment of the NDA government at the centre to complete the Polavaram project on a priority basis, Union health minister and Andhra Pradesh in-charge of BJP, JP Nadda said that the party is giving special attention to Andhra Pradesh.

Addressing the State Executive Committee meeting held in the city Sunday, Nadda said that Prime minister Narendra Modi was paying special attention to Andhra Pradesh, which was why the Union government sanctioned several Central educational institutions to the state and also provided uninterrupted power supply.

The BJP has emerged as the largest political party in the world by securing 18 crore votes in the 2014 general elections and crossing 10 crore membership in the recent drive, Nadda said.

He exuded confidence that the saffron party would soon emerge as a strong political party in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan. The BJP membership drive was about to conclude and a three months-long ‘Jana Sampark Maha Sampark Abhiyan’ would be launched to identify party strengths in various states, he explained. Presiding over the meeting, party state president and MP K Haribabu explained various schemes launched by the BJP government. The BJP government is committed to develop Andhra Pradesh and hence merged seven mandals of Khammam district with the state to facilitate Polavaram project, he pointed out. Earlier, the state committee felicitated the Union minister. Party senior leaders PV Chalapati Rao, V Ramachandra Reddy, S Veerraju, GVL Narasimha Rao, MP Gokaraju Ganga Raju, health minister Kamineni Srinivasa Rao, endowments minister P Manikyala Rao, MLAs P Vishnukumar Raju and A Satyanarayana, MLC Kantheti Satyanarayana Raju, former ministers Kavuri Sambasiva Rao, Daggubati Purandheswari and U Krishnamraju and party city president PV Narayana Rao were present.

Govt Stand on Tobacco Products Cleared

Speaking to mediamen later, Union minister Nadda cleared the government’s stand on printing bigger picture warnings on tobacco products. He clarified that the government would take action in this regard based on the report to be submitted soon by the Parliamentary Committee rather than considering individual opinions.
