The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will have offices in every mandal across Assam to strengthen its organisational base, said Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday.
Addressing party workers after a meeting in Bongaigaon, Sarma said though the BJP has been present in Assam for several decades now, it did not consider having offices at the local level from the organisational point of view.
"BJP came into prominence in the last two decades and it marched at a rapid pace from 2014 onwards. The party did not focus on having its offices at the district level initially, but today we are targeting to have our offices in every district headquarters," he added.
“Now we want to go to the mandal level. Our next target is to have party offices in each mandal of Assam. For that, we will need finances and we hope that people will contribute generously,” the Chief Minister said.
Earlier in the day, Sarma inaugurated the BJP Bongaigaon district office in the presence of State party president, Bhabesh Kalita.
