'Aim is to rid India of casteism, graft, Cong'
BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday said the key objective of his party is to build a strong India, which is "free from casteism, corruption, regionalism and the Congress".
"The objective is to build a strong India which is free from casteism, corruption, regionalism as well as the Congress. The party workers will dedicatedly contribute towards achieving this target," he said.
Shah was addressing BJP workers on the concluding day of the three-day state-level 'Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Shatabdi Karyakarta Vistar' workshop here.
He said the BJP plans to expand its footprint in the birth centenary year of Jana Sangh ideologue Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay and is observing the birth centenary year of Upadhyay as the year of the party's national work expansion scheme.
"Therefore, the workers will have to shoulder the responsibility of expanding the party's base at the grassroots level," he was quoted as saying in a BJP release.
