Nation First core of BJP philosophy: Rana
SUNDERBANI: Senior BJP leader Devender Singh Rana today said the mantra of Nation First has been the core and guiding philosophy of the Bhartiya Janata Party, making it a party with a difference, devoted to upholding unity, sovereignty and integrity of the country that is Bharat, the emerging Vishwaguru under the dynamic leadership of Yashasvi Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“BJP under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set a nationalistic political discourse with civilizational renaissance getting new wings, ending the despondency of centuries due to persecution, followed by the politics of appeasement proactively carried out by the Congress post-independence,” Devender Rana said while addressing the Shakti Vandan Workshop in Sunderbani, adding that the era of suppression did more harm than the subjugation of over 800 years.
He said the Congress’s bonhomie with British colonial rulers actually resulted in the partition of the Nation in 1947 on the East-West side and now the Congress is pursuing the Nehruvian blunders to the next sinister level, furthering this divide on the North-South side.
While recalling the Congress onslaught on the Indian psyche during the past seven and half decades, Rana said as if the follies and erroneous political moves of Jawaharlal Nehru were not enough that now the Congress with its rhetoric associated with this divisive, anti-national Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra by Rahul Gandhi, which is Bharat Todo and Desh ke Vibhajan Karao Yatra is creating a divide within the country.
Rana said, “A nation’s sovereignty and integrity are paramount and should never be compromised. The commitment to safeguarding the unity of the Nation is unwavering, even if sacrifices need to be made.”
Rana said the PM’s vision of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas Sabka Vishwas Sabka Prayas has galvanised the compatriots and motivated all to ensure Viksit Bharat by 2047.
He said that the Prime Minister’s commitment to inclusive growth is reflected in initiatives like “Make in India”, “Start-up”, “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” and “Ayushman Bharat” which aim to uplift every section of society, bridging the gaps that have persisted for six decades since the independence. “For the past nine years, however, the thrust and motivation has been to ensure economic development that reaches every corner of the country’s diverse society without appeasement or discrimination,” he said.
“The Prime Minister has translated this vision as reality on the ground, which is why India is seen as a vibrant country across the world,” he said, adding that every Indian feels a sense of pride across the continents for the stature the nation has achieved in the comity of nations.
Referring to the role of the Congress lackeys in Jammu and Kashmir in different avatars from time to time, Rana said the people can see through the political opportunism of its allies like the NC and the PDP, who exist on the political landscape for just grabbing the power. The trauma with the three trios is that they are no longer relevant in the political arena of Jammu and Kashmir, given their trail of misgovernance and anti-people policies.
On the contrary, Rana said the BJP has created a niche for itself due to path-breaking initiatives taken for the welfare of the people and the progress of both regions of Kashmir and Jammu. He said the Union Territory is close to the heart of the Prime Minister, who has a vision for Naya J&K, where opportunities for progress are available to all, irrespective of region or religion, and without any discrimination or appeasement.
Chander Mohan Gupta former Mayor, while speaking on the occasion highlighted the aim of this programme which he said is aimed to spread awareness regarding the Centre’s initiatives undertaken to boost women’s empowerment.
On the occasion, Jasbir Singh Chib, National Conference Vice President from District Rajouri joined the BJP along with his supporters.
