BJP strengthening grass root democracy: Ashok Koul

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state general secretary (organization), Ashok Koul Thursday said that the party was strengthening the democracy at grass roots level.

Talking to KNS on the sidelines of the Panchayat raj convention in Srinagar, Koul said that the party had called five sarpanchs each from the district for holding deliberations with them regarding certain issues.

“Recently, Union Home Minister Amit Shah also laid stress on strengthening the democracy on grass roots level. On Shah’s directions, we have been organizing conventions here to get the feedback from the people on the ground,” he said.

Koul added that the feedback they receive during these conventions will be forwarded to the government accordingly.

He said the conventions will also deliberate upon the recently concluded ‘Back to village’, adding that the feedback of the program will also be forwarded to the government.
