Addressing the concluding session of the State Working Committee Meeting of the party, BJP National Vice-President & J&K Prabhari Avinash Rai Khanna said that perseverance and whole hearted effort in executing an assignment by the party worker is of elemental importance. He said that whatever is undertaken must be taken to its logical conclusion.

To educate the people about these schemes, the party at the national level has constituted 33 teams comprising of Union Ministers and BJP National Leaders, to visit 200 cities in the country. Khanna said that Modi’s appeal to well off families to give up gas subsidy evoked tremendous response and one crore 13 lakh families voluntarily gave up this concession resulting in the saving of 36 thousand crores.
