Allahabad, June 13 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday exhorted BJP leaders and workers to embrace seven precepts that he said would strengthen the party and increase its presence across India.
“Sense of service, balance, patience, coordination, positive attitude, sensitivity and dialogue were the seven points the Prime Minister asked party leaders and workers to follow,” union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley told reporters here.
Modi asked the party leaders and workers to remain “polite” and not to get carried away by power.
“He asked them to concentrate on serving the people,” Jaitley said.
Jaitley said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government has had “two successful years” in office, making policy paralysis a thing of the past.
“It’s a historical period for all of us,” the minister said, adding that India is a “bright spot” and a “fastest-growing economy” in the world now.
He said the BJP’s two-day National Executive convention in Allahabad, which concluded on Monday, was held when the party was doing “really well”.
Among other things the Bharatiya Janata Party discussed was how it would strengthen its presence in states where it was not doing well earlier, Jaitley said.
The minister said there has been a great change in the popularity graph of the Congress and the BJP.
He said the Congress has gone down in terms of popularity and was on the verge of losing its mass base further.
