“The parties like National Conference, Congress and PDP took full liberty to enjoy the privileges of the power corridors, but did nothing to empower this most important pillar of democracy,” Raina said and added that it was only the Modi-led Government that took “substantial steps” to make sure that the democracy is strengthened at the basic level in the State. He added that the policies of the BJP leadership were being appreciated by one and all and that is the reason that almost daily, active social and the political personalities were coming forward to embrace the party to serve the masses.
