BJP appoints ‘Bistarak’ for each Panchayat


The state unit of Bharatiya Janata Party has decided to appoint “Bistarak (spreader)” in each of the 591 Panchayats of the state in order to assess the ground realty and take necessary measures for overall development.

“As the party is all set to win almost 90 percent of Panchayats uncontested and also at the same time eyeing to increase membership throughout the state, the interior pockets of the state need constant monitoring of state leaders. So, we have decided to appoint Bistaraks for each of the Panchayats for better monitoring of all the party activities exactly as the 2018 Assembly elections” said Party’s General Secretary Rajeeb Bhattcharjee.

Bhattacharjee who today attended the party’s organizational meeting at Agartala Town Hall, also said, Party Chief and state’s Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb presided over today’s organizational meeting in presence of other leaders like Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Devbarma and Dr Manik Saha. During his speech the Chief Minister stressed on strengthening the organizational power of the party through more and more monitoring by the state level leaders.

All the party leaders starting from Mondol to state, MLAs and other elected representatives have been entrusted with separate Panchayats to get monitored by them, he added.

Moreover, he informed this correspondent, the Bistaraks will have to participate in Jana Samparka Abhiyan in their respective areas. They will also act as a connecting rope between the party’s state leaderships and the locals. This initiative, Bhattacharjee feel, will enrich the party’s reach among the masses and add up to party’s future goals.
