New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Sunday interact with BJP’s booth-level workers from South Goa parliamentary constituency through tele-conferencing.
Around 4,000 booth-level workers would attend the interaction to be held at a school ground in Margao town of South Goa, located around 35 km from Panaji, BJP Lok Sabha member Narendra Sawaikar told reporters on Wednesday.
Sawaikar, who represents South Goa constituency in the Lok Sabha, expressed confidence that the BJP will retain both the parliamentary constituencies (the other being North Goa) from the state in the forthcoming general elections.
“Goa has witnessed a big development push as the BJP has been at the helm at the Centre and in the state,” he said.
Various infrastructure works, including the construction of bridges, are among the highlights of the Union government’s performance, he added.
PM Modi’s address to party workers comes a day after the leaders from 22 opposition parties came together at a mega rally in Kolkata and declared they will fight unitedly to oust the Narendra Modi government which has “passed its expiry date”.
Last Sunday, while addressing booth-level party workers from five parliamentary constituencies in Tamil Nadu, PM Modi took a dig at opposition parties’ efforts to form to grand alliance against the BJP, saying that party his is here to serve the country whereas on the other side there are “opportunistic alliance, dynastic parties”.
“They want to build their own empire but we want to empower people,” he said.
The alliance against the BJP is a ‘short-term’ one being done for the benefits of the respective parties, he said.
“Unlike other parties, we are not in politics to divide and rule and for building vote-bank. We are here to serve the country in every way,” he said
