ON THE OCCASION OF JAYANTI OF PT. DEENDAYAL UPADHYAY 1500 BJP WORKERS DONATE BLOOD
The BJP Delhi Pradesh organised a massive blood donation camp today at 14, Pt. Pant Marg on the occasion of the jayanti of Pt. Deendayal Upadhyayji. Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, former President of the BJP inaugurated the camp today.
While inaugurating the blood donation camp, Mr. Naidu said that it is necessary for all of us to remind ourselves that the concept of voluntary social service is deeply rooted in Indian spiritual history and social traditions. ‘Sarvejana Sukhino Bhavantu’ (May all people be happy) is the guidance we Indians have received from vedic times. ‘Manava Seve Madhava Seva and Nara seve Narayana seva’(service to human kind is service to God) is all that inspired us throughout millions years of our history.
Mahatma Gandhiji and Deendayalji said true religion is in feeling the pain and suffering of others and in doing what one can to alleviate them. He further said a true human being is one who experiences the pain of others. Pt. Deendayalji always said that upliftment of the poorest of the poor is the need of the hour. He said that political workers should not only focus on politics but also focus on constructive activity.
Mr. Naidu said that in the fitness of things the Delhi unit of the BJP has organised the blood donation camp because ‘Raktadanam is Mahadanam’ and it really helps the people in distress. Mr. Naidu said that the real tribute to the memory of Pt. Deendayalji is understanding and following the concept of Antyodaya. Mr. Naidu called upon the party workers, particularly the youth, to get themselves involved not only in political activities like meetings, agitations, dharnas, demonstrations etc., but also in constructive activities.
Mr. Naidu complimented the Delhi BJP Unit for organising a massive blood donation camp and also complimented the doctors of nine hospitals/blood banks like AIIMS, RML, Pt. Pant Hospital, Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital etc. and other agencies like Red Cross etc. who have come forward to support the cause and to help conduct the camp. More than 1500 workers have donated their blood today. Shri Naidu thanked all those who have contributed for the success of the blood donation camp.
Responding to media persons’ query on the Telangana agitation, Mr. Naidu said the Central Government and the Central Congress leadership alone is responsible for the mess they have created in Andhra Pradesh. Lack of commitment, clarity, unity and foresight on the part of the Government and the Congress party has resulted in the present chaos. Their arrogance, highhandedness, opportunistic politics for their short-term political gains added fuel to the fire. He also said that the entire Telangana region has come to a standstill and the development and governance in the state has come to a grinding halt.
The Government of India and the Congress leadership must come out with clear-cut solutions immediately or else the Congress will be wiped out from the State, Shri Naidu warned.
In this programme Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta, Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra, Shri Vijay Goel, Sayyed Sehnawaz Hussain, Shri Rameshwar Chaurasiya, Ms. Vani Tripathi, Shri Prabhat Jha, Shri Vijay Sharma, Shri Ramesh Bidhuri, Prof. Rajani Abbi, Legislators Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Prof. Jagdish Mukhi, Shri Shyam Lal Garg, Shri Karan Singh Tanwar, Shri Satprakash Rana, Convenor of Doctor’s cell and organiser of Blood Donation Camp Dr. S.C.L. Gupta and many party officebearers and Sr. leaders participated.
On this occasion Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta said that under its resolve for social service BJP Delhi Pradesh has today organised this camp like previous year on the birthday of Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyay. Participation of thousands of BJP workers in this camp show that BJP treats service of human being as the service of God. Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyay had said that politics is incomplete without the service of human being. Indian politics is for the service of human being and society. BJP will continue to follow this path.
