Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was a busy person on Sunday launching several new schemes while also attending a religious program at Patna's Gandhi Maidan.
Kumar, who recently replaced Sharad Yadav as Janata Dal – U national President, launched a nationwide campaign to bolster party membership pledging to induct 50 lakh new members by the end of this month.
Personally handing over party membership certificate to 25 new inductees who were required to pay the obligatory Rs. 5 in membership fee, the Chief Minister himself renewed his membership in the presence of JD-U state President Vashisht Narayan Singh and other party members.
"Our senior leaders, including Sharad Yadav, are in their respective constituencies where they are overseeing the launch of membership drive. Our goal is to induct 50 lakh members by the end of this month," he said.
Singh said that each member or worker was required to induct a maximum of 25 new members. "Once a member successfully inducts 25 new members, he or she becomes an 'active member'," he said.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
