The new BJP members expressed their faith in the leadership of Chief Minister Pema Khandu and local legislator cum Legislative Assembly Speaker Tenzing Norbu Thongdok.
Thongdok, while welcoming them into the party fold said, “We have to be united and work in tandem for the welfare of the area and most importantly, for the poor and downtrodden.”
The MLA further spoke on the motto and idea of “Sarvodaya” and “Antodaya”- welfare of the masses and the weaker section in particular, which is also the tagline of the BJP.
