BJP President Amit Shah will visit Chhattisgarh on Monday to take part in an event organised in Raipur to mark the completion of 13 years of the party-led Raman Singh government in the state. Shah will address a convention of BJP at Science College Grounds where a large number of party workers are expected to gather from across Chhattisgarh, a state party spokesperson said. During the day-long visit, he will also dedicate the newly constructed Late Nanaji Deshmukh Granthalaya (library) at the Kushabhau Thakre Parisar, which houses the state BJP headquarters, he added.
As per the schedule made available by the party, Shah will arrive at the Swami Vivekanand Airport in Raipur in the morning and leave for the state BJP headquarters where he will inaugurate the library. Later, the BJP President will address the party workers at around 1 pm.
Besides Chief Minister Raman Singh, BJP General Secretaries Saroj Pandey and Ram Lal, Joint General Secretary Saudan Singh and Union Minister Vishnu Deo Sai will be present at the programme organised to mark completion of 13 years of the party government in the tribal-dominated state.
