Mysuru, October 19:- Senior leader C H Vijayashankar on Monday (October 19) said the Bharatiya Janata Party is the only party where an ordinary member can grow to any level.
He was talking at the party meeting of Chamundeshwari Constituency held at Ramakrishna Nagar in the city. “When I talk of Chamundeshwari, I immediately think of Vaishnodevi. I had once gone there on a pilgrimage. A soldier there wanted to know my whereabouts. When I told him I am from Mysuru, he replied, ‘Oh, are you from the land of Chamundeshwari.”
Vijayashankar said, “During Navaratri, all good forces join hands. The festival is celebrated to mark the killing of Mahishasura by Goddess Chamundeshwari. I pray to the Goddess to bless us with prosperity and peace and good health.”
The BJP leader said, “The BJP is a symbol of unity and strength. Just because we were not united then, lot of attacks took place in India. The sacrifice many people got us freedom. BJP works on people’s effort while Congress depends on a particular family for its survival.”
Vijayashankar added, “A party worker is the one who does what is expected of him. He mediates between the organisation and the people. He stays in touch with people to tell them party’s ideals.”
He added, “People have accepted BJP. Let us work on the principle of ‘Vasudeva Kutumbam.’ We should teach the world what ideals are. We need workers who stand by our ideals.”
BJP city president T Srivatsa, M V Ravishankar, K P Madhusudhan and others were present. (MR/GK)
