PM Modi discussed on barrage of topics with BJP karyakartas that includes Vaccination coverage, Technology related issues, Amba ji, Solar power projects, development of Kutch etc.

Interacting with Shailesh Panchal from Vadodara district, PM Modi said that he was aware that BJP karyakartas were helpful during corona times. He also asked him about the use of technology. Replying to this, Panchal said, “We are active on social media and we have made different whatsapp and messaging groups for different areas to fulfill their particular needs.”

Also, he said, “Pehle Desh, Phir Dal... This has always been the mantra of BJP for all our Karyakartas.” PM Modi said that all Panna Pramukhs from the state should make an effort to know each and every member present in their panna and treat them as their family whether there is an election or not.

PM Modi urged all Panna Pramukhs to sit together and listen to ‘Mann Ki Baat’. He also asked one of the karyakartas to get the photo clicked of all Panna Pramukhs listening to Mann Ki Baat and share with him on the social media.

The Prime Minister has requested Panna Pramukhs for micro donation, to donate small amounts of money to the party fund. He also said, “the 'Kamal Pushp' is an innovative campaign on the NaMo App. I urge the Panna Pramukhs to collect inspiring stories of the Karyakartas who have served the society.” PM Modi also stressed on the need to reduce malnutrition and steps to be taken to eradicate this and other related problems.
