In an interactive session with BJP workers, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday applauded BJP workers for extending help to those in need during the nationwide lockdown.
Reviewing the relief work done by the party's Bihar unit during the 'Seva Hi Sangathan' meet, Modi said that some believed that Covid-19 will spread more in east India due to high poverty, but people proved it wrong.
Seven units of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) made a presentation before Prime Minister Narendra Modi on their initiatives in line with the government's gareeb kalyan schemes for those in need in the aftermath of the corona pandemic.
"At a time when each one is trying to save themselves, you have forgotten your own safety and gone out of the way in helping the people, "PM Modi told BJP workers, adding this is a great example of selfless work. "Some workers have lost their lives in this fight against COVID-19. I extend my condolences to all of them. I urge the party to look after their families, PM Modi urged. The motto of our party to ensure the comfort of all and serve them, the PM also said.
The Prime Minister said, "Political commentators see elections only from a political perspective. But for the BJP, the party is not just a machine to win elections. It stands for seva (service), for people, for community, for the country, to bring change."
Before chairing the meet, Modi in a tweet said in these challenging times, party workers have been working tirelessly across India, helping those in need.
"For BJP karyakartas, serving the nation comes first," he tweeted.
