NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday took stock of the relief work undertaken by the BJP cadres and party supporters across the country for the poor and needy during the nationwide lockdown and directed for putting such endeavours in digital format by September 25, the birth anniversary of Bharatiya Jana Sangh co-founder Deendayal Upadhayaya.
The BJP had claimed to have distributed more than 22.18 crore food packets, over 5.04 crore ration kits and over 5.66 crore face masks across India.
"Many of our cadres, despite knowing the danger, kept working for the people and lost their lives. I pay my tributes to all of them," a sombre-looking Modi said as he praised BJP relief efforts.
He listened to statistics reeled out by BJP leaders from various state units on the relief work, including Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Maharashtra.
He said that the BJP should compile their relief work in a digital format from the national to the mandal level by September 25. (IANS)
