Praising the BJP’s Bhopal rally of September 25, party patriarch L K Advani today said Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan had planned it as a ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh’ and but it turned into a ‘’historic, record breaking event’’.
‘’September 25 is a very important date for all Bharatiya Janata Party workers. It is the birth anniversary of our party’s principal ideologue since its launching as Bharatiya Jana Sangh in 1951, namely, that of Pandit Deendayal Upadhayaya,’’ Mr Advani said in his latest blog.
He said on September 25, he had started his Somnath to Ayodhya yatra in 1990.
‘’If September 25 of 1990 was important for us in the BJP because of this Somnath to Ayodhya yatra, the same date this year, that is just last month, will always remain etched in our memories because of the all time record number of party activists who assembled at Bhopal, and that too activists of just one state– Madhya Pradesh,’’ the BJP Parliamentary Party Chairman said.
He said on the stage were all Central leaders of the party at the Bhopal Jambooree Maidan and in front of them were as many as exactly 6,49,702 party workers, who had formally registered themselves for this unique conclave, with averagely at least 10 drawn from each of the 53,896 polling stations spread over 51 districts of the state.
‘’It is what I witnessed this day in Bhopal that made me sincerely feel that for BJP, there are no full stops,’’ Mr Advani said.
