To mark the 49th death anniversary of the BJP’s founding father, Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyayji, the state BJP joined rest of the nation in celebrating the day as “Samarpan Divas” at the party headquarters where voluntary contributions were made besides recounting Pandit Deen Dayal’s life, principles and ideologies that laid to the foundation of Bharatiya Jan Sangh which later became Bharatiya Janata Party.
While delivering his “Marg Darshan”, Hon’ble Minister for Power (E), Handloom and Textile, Tamiyo Taga exhorted the party workers to read and internalize Panditji’s philosophy of integral humanism that is all encompassing rather than viewing things or events in isolation.
Keynote speaker, Shekhar Kelkar, Prant Sah Seva Pramukh of RSS delved into the philosophies espoused by Deen Dayal Upadhayaji and said, ‘His greatness was in his simple living and high thinking and in his ability to connect with the people.’ Panditji’s idea of Jan Sangh was not to create an alternative political organisation to Congress but he had vision for an organisation that would work for the poorest of the poor, Kelkar added.
Earlier, Uttam Ingale, Subansiri Vibhag Pracharak of RSS highlighted the life and struggles of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya. He recalled the amount of trust Shyama Prasad Mukherjee had on Panditji’s capability coupled with honesty and integrity in finding the right approach to unite the nation for the progress of all.
In-Charge President and General Secretary, State BJP, Jarpum Gamlin administered the pledge “Samarpan Sankalp” exhorting each one to rededicate themselves to serve the nation.
Other speakers of the day were former State Presdient, BJP, Tai Tagak, State ST Morcha Head Hinium Tachu, serving Vice President of BJP Kenyir Ringu and Dominic Tadar.
