NEW DELHI :
PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated J P Nadda on his election as the BJP President and said that he was sure that the party will scale newer heights during his presidency. Modi, who felicitated Nadda at the BJP headquarter here, also praised Amit Shah for his contribution, describing him as an “outstanding karyakarta (worker)” “I do not think words can do justice to the rich contribution of Amit Shah Ji as BJP President. During his presidency, BJP got opportunities to serve in several parts of India,” Modi said in a series of tweets. Wishing Nadda very best for his tenure, the Prime Minister said, “Nadda Ji is a dedicated and disciplined Karyakarta who has worked for years to strengthen the party at the grassroots. His affable nature is also known to all.”
“Be it as a young Party Karyakarta, MLA, Minister in Himachal Pradesh or organisational duties at the Centre, MP and Union Minister, Nadda Ji has added value to any responsibility he has held,” Modi added. While addressing the BJP leaders and workers at a ceremony to felicitate Nadda, Modi hit out at Opposition parties, saying those rejected by people in elections have been left with few weapons and were spreading confusion and lies.
Without naming his rivals, Modi also targeted the “echo system” backing them, and said it has always been against the BJP. Asserting that despite attempts by the Opposition to spread confusion and lies, people’s faith in the BJP and his Government have remained “unshaken”, he said the party returned to power with a bigger mandate in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls despite its rivals fighting with their full strength.
