“Sacrifice of generations of karyakartas (workers) inspire us to work… The new office is not just a building or a structure but a symbol of the sacrifices of the party leaders. Our determination is to take everyone together, work for everyone. Nation building is our main priority,” the Prime Minister said at the site of party’s new office which will have 70-rooms.
“The thought of our party’s leader was very clear - we will be in the opposition but we won’t compromise on our ideals,” he noted.
The new office is just 5 km away from the current office on Ashoka Road. The building will be spread across two acres with 70 per cent of lush greenery.
