State BJP President Tapir Gao on Saturday appealed to the party workers to gear up party activities for the forthcoming municipality, panchayat and Assembly elections in Arunachal Pradesh.

Addressing a Booth level committee (BLC) Sammelan here, Gao said the party strength lies with the BLC leaders and workers who have to carry forward the principles and ideology of the party. Public-oriented schemes of the Central and State governments should be disseminated in the greater interest of the public service which are beneficial to the general masses, he added.

Referring to distribution of party ticket for Itanagar assembly constituency, Gao said party ticket will be given among few aspiring candidates such as sitting MLA Techi Kaso, Tame Phassang, Kipa Babu, and Techi Neecha.

He also reminded that a survey is being carried for the same and one cannot say that party ticket will be given to which particular leader. “Party workers should work in the interest of the party to win the next election with a thumping majority,” he said.

Itanagar BJP secretary in charge Tarh Tarak said the BLC Chalo Abhiyaan, which started from July 6 has reached all the 72 polling stations and has met all the BLC executive members and discussed the party matters in the area.

“Organisation-based cadre needs to be established in the Capital City unit by the party workers. This will be an example for the other party workers of state with an objective to strengthen it from grass root level,” he added.

He also appealed to the party leaders to work sincerely for strengthening the party for the forthcoming election with a sizeable margin victory.

Capital district city unit BJP president Tarh Soping said that the BLC Chalo Abhiyaan was successful wherein the leaders were able to meet all the committee members. They have been guided to move forward with responsibility for strengthening of the organisation in capital complex.
