Bhubaneswar: On the concluding session of the two-day long national executive meet of BJP at Janata Maidan, Nitin Gadkari addressed a press conference here today after a closed door meeting at the venue and informed regarding PM Modi’s speech.
“PM Modi has sought to make India free from social and economic inequalities”, said Gadkari.
“PM Modi’s speech at national executive meet was also about Jan Dhan, Jal Dhan and Van Dhan”, Gadkari said.
Modi asked the BJP to reach out to poor Muslims, who have not benefitted much in all these years.
Making an intervention during the BJP national executive meeting here, Modi said that even Muslim communities have backwards, who are the most marginalized, and it is the utmost duty of BJP to take the fruits of development to them.
Modi’s outreach to backward Muslims comes amidst the backdrop of a move to accord constitutional status to the OBC commission. The Lok Sabha has passed a related bill, but however the bill got blocked in the Upper house. He also stressed on the need to move forward with the formula of New India. “We will not move slowly but fast”, said Modi.
