‘Let’s unite and make India COVID-19 free’, says PM Modi on BJP’s 40th foundation day

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday extended wishes to party workers on Bharatiya Janata Party’s 40th foundation day, recalling the contribution of those who worked hard for decades to build the party.

In a tweet Modi said, “Whenever the BJP has been given the opportunity to serve, it has focused on good governance and empowering the poor.”

“In line with the party’s ethos, our workers have toiled to bring a positive change in the lives of many and done great social service,” Modi added.

The prime minister said that the party’s 40th foundation day has come at a time when India is battling COVID-19.

“I urge BJP workers to follow the set of guidelines from our party president JP Nadda, help the needy and reaffirm the importance of social distancing. Let’s unite and make India COVID-19 free,” he said.

The BJP expressed its gratitude to its founding members, leaders and workers on the occasion.

“On the foundation day of BJP, we thank to our founding members, leaders and workers, whose hard work has not only given it the pride of being the largest party in the world but it has become synonymous with Indian culture, nationalism and development-oriented politics,” the BJP tweeted.
