JAMMU, Feb 11: Remembering Late Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and his services to the Nation on his death anniversary, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Jammu and Kashmir today organized Samarpan Diwas programmes on Mandal level across the region, which were attended by senior party leaders.
The main programme in this connection was organized at BJP Headquarter Trikuta Nagar Jammu, which was attended by party’s J&K President Ravinder Raina accompanied by party’s General Secretary (Org.) Ashok Kaul, former Deputy CM Kavinder Gupta, General Secretary Yudhvir Sethi, former Minister Priya Sethi, former MLCs Ashok Khajuria and Vikram Randhawa, District Jammu President Vinay Kumar Gupta, Mahila Morcha President Rajni Sethi, Chairman JMC Baldev Singh Billawaria and Gandhi Nagar Mandal President Lucky Puri.

Ravinder Raina, while paying tributes to the great ideologue Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, said that every year, BJP organizes “Samarpan Diwas” on death anniversary of Panditji. The “Samarpan” offered by party activists is mark of respect to the great soul and the belief that our party is being run on strong principles that were advocated by Pt. ji throughout his life. Panditji never worked to gain popularity or to be elected as an MP or MLA but worked entirely for the welfare of the nation and lived his life in simplicity.
Raina, added that Indian history is full of examples likes Bhagat Singh, Jhansi Ki Rani, Chander Shekhar Azad, Ashfaq Ulla Khan and others who laid down their lives in service of mother Earth. In the Independent India, Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya was a key person in the formation of Bharatiya Jana Sangha to shape a greater India. At that time, Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya strongly took stand for nationalism in period, that was marred with opportunism in free India, Raina said.
Ashok Kaul, while paying tributes spoke on the life events of Panditji. He said that the vision of Panditji was very clear that the true rise of India can only be achieved through “Integral Humanism” and “Antodaya”. Strong advocate of nationalism, integral humanism having core of “Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah”, Antodaya (benefit to the last person standing in the row), great economic policy, Panditji was a social and political thinker who loved his motherland beyond anything, he added.
Yudhvir Sethi coordinated the whole programme.
Meanwhile, a function was in this regard at BJP Office Samba, wherein BJP workers paid tributes to Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya. Among others present were former Minister Dr DK Manyal, Municipal Chairman Pawan Koli, Sanjeev Padha, Naresh Amba, Sanjeev Kumar, etc.
