Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders and party workers in Patna on Sunday observed the 98th birth anniversary of late Thakur Prasad, Jan Sangh leader and the Industry Minister in the first Janata Party government in Bihar, at a function held at the community hall named after him in Kidwaipuri.
The event was also used to honor a number of party workers who were presented with a shawl and a garland.
Speaking on the occasion, senior leader and former Union Minister Dr. C P Thakur praised the party workers and operatives saying they were the biggest strength of the BJP. He, however, quickly added that the greatest tribute to Prasad would be making the BJP form government in Bihar on its own strength alone.
State Road Construction Minister Nand Kishore Yadav describe Prasad as the builder of the modern Bihar.
Party legislator Arun Kumar Sinha, Patna Mayor Sita Sahu, Thakur's son Manoj Shankar and grand son Aditya Shankar were among many who were present on the occasion.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
