Bhubaneswar: BJD president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Sunday asked party leaders to work ‘wholeheartedly’ for the party.
Addressing block and district level observers here at the end of a workshop, Naveen set two key agendas for the party workers keeping in mind the 2019 assembly and general elections — to counter the false propaganda by the opposition parties and to popularize the welfare programmes of the state government.
The two-day workshop for observers was organized by the party to effectively carry out two major people connect programmes — ‘ama goan…ama vikash’ for rural areas and ‘ama sahar…ama unnati’ for the urban areas.
“BJD) is your party and you work wholeheartedly for its success,” Naveen told at the workshop that was attended by around 600 leaders.
With an aim for horizontal expansion of the party, the ruling dispensation has decided to form ward level committees involving people from various walks both in urban and rural areas. The move is aimed to counter the ‘mo booth..sabuthu majboot’, a programme by the BJP that aimed to strengthen its base in all 36,000 booths across the state.
While interacting with the block and district level observers, Naveen said he will review the report of the block level observers and also assured to interact with the block level observers directly.
Emphasizing on use of social media for better communication among cadres and to promote the good works by the state government, Naveen enquired whether the leaders are using mediums like Whatsapp, Twitter and Facebook.
Total 21 topics were discussed in the two day workshops and we have finalized organization plan for all 314 blocks and 113 urban local bodies,” said BJD vice president Debi Prasad Mishra.
