I have appealed to the religious leaders to speak out against money culture during religious gatherings. There is a need to educate the people about this menace.Money culture and clan politics is not healthy for a democracy.”

He added that neutral agencies and educated people should come forward to guide their tribe.

The aim of the party is to serve the people.We don’t go into election mode just because elections are around the corner and the aim to serve the people will always be the motto of the BJP. We are confident that the people will vote us into power for the second time because of the work we have done,” he said.

Meanwhile, in a statement underscoring the political dynamics within the BJP, Khandu emphasized the significance of selecting the most suitable candidate to represent the party in the upcoming assembly elections. Speaking on the matter of ticket allocation, Khandu highlighted the pivotal role of the BJP Parliamentary Board, the highest authority within the party, in making the decision.

Hopefully after February 20, anyday it can be inaugurated. The specific date has not been fixed till now.”
