BJP national president JP Nadda will be on a two-day visit to Kangra on February 3 to 4. He will address a rally of BJP workers in Zorawar stadium in Dharamsala on February 3 and hold meeting of state leaders of BJP on the following day. The state president of BJP Rajiv Bindal gave this information while addressing a press conference here yesterday.

Gearing up for Lok Sabha poll

  • The meeting of JP Nadda to Kangra district assumes significance as BJP was gearing up for Lok Sabha poll in the state. Sources here said Nadda would hold meeting with party leaders from the state to discuss the probable candidates for the forthcoming elections. The party would be looking for new candidates at least in three out of four seats in Himachal.

He said this would be Nadda’s first visit to Himachal since the BJP recorded victory in three state Assemblies of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan under his leadership. The party workers from Himachal would honour Nadda who has done Himachal proud by leading the party to victory in these assembly elections.

Bindal said the under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi the prestige of India had gone up globally. The country was progressing in all spheres.

The Congress tried to forge an alliance with regional parties to challenge the leadership of Narendra Modi. However, the INDIA alliance was in tatters even before the Lok Sabha polls. The Convenor of the INDIA alliance Nitish Kumar has left it. In West Bengal, the TMC, a major partner of INDIA alliance, has announced to go alone. In Punjab and Delhi, AAP and Congress are not forming an alliance.

Bindal said it was for the first time in the history of Himachal that the people had taken to roads against the government right in the first year of its rule. Not just the people but many leaders of Congress were venting their ire against government.

Bindal said the BJP would win all the four Lok Sabha seats in Himachal with a thumping majority.
