The Bharatiya JanataYuva Morcha of the BJP organised a Nav Matdata Samman Samaroh to honour its first time voters in the city at Sector 15 today. BJP national secretary Shyam Jaju,was the chief guest on the occasion said the youth are the catalysts of change.
The youth should question why the country has not seen development under the Congress rule. The country has been in the shadow of insecurity. The younger generation are the future of the country and should ensure that the country is in safe hands, Jaju said.
BJPs candidate from the city,Satya Pal Jain,said the Congress was responsible for rise in the cost of education,health services and medicine and growing unemployment. He said before the last Parliamentary elections,the Congress had promised to generate 10 million news jobs,but according to government figures,15 million people have lost their jobs while another 15 million are at risk of doing so.
He added that on coming to power,the BJP will draw up an education policy,sports policy and an employment policy for Chandigarh. Blaming the Congress party,which had asked for votes in the name of the common man,he said they had only looked after the interests of the rich.
Chandigarh BJP president Kamla Sharma,who presided over the function,said the BJP alone will provide an opportunity to prove and rise to their potential.
Chandigarh state BJP general secretary Sanjay Tandon,Mata Ram Dhiman,BJYM national executive member Jaswant Babloo and BJYM national treasurer Aseem Goyal as well as a large number of youth leaders also addressed the gathering.
