Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted BJP workers on the party’s 40th foundation day on Monday and asked them to help the needy as the country fights to contain the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Recalling the contribution of those who toiled for decades to build the party, he said it is because of them that the BJP got the chance to serve the country.

“Tributes to all those who have toiled hard to build the party for decades, due to which BJP has got the opportunity to serve crores of Indians across our nation’s length and breadth,” Modi wrote on Twitter.

The prime minister also said that whenever the BJP has been given the opportunity to serve the nation, it has focused on good governance and empowering the poor.

“In line with the party’s ethos, our karyakartas (workers) have worked hard to bring a positive difference in the lives of many and done great social service,” he tweeted.

 

Pointing out that the party’s 40th anniversary comes at a time when India is battling Covid-19, Modi said, “I appeal to BJP karyakartas to follow the set of guidelines from our party president J P Nadda-ji, help those in need and reaffirm the importance of social distancing. Let’s make India Covid-19-free,” he said.

A letter from the Editor

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers.
