Nadda congratulated state BJP president BR Wahge, senior BJP leader and Chief Minister Pema Khandu, and workers of the party for the new office building.
“There is a difference between an office and a karyalaya. An office runs from 10 am to 5 pm but a karyalaya runs even after 5pm. This a place where karyakartas (workers) discuss on several issues, ” Nadda said in his address.
He said that karyakarta (worker) , karyakarni (executive) and karyalaya (office) are indispensable and with this permanent office today, party workers would work with more zeal and serve party and frontier state-Arunachal with outmost sincerity.

This picture was changed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Under Act East Policy, a lot of developmental work has been done in the region. Today, NE across the world is known for its connectivity, infrastructure, sports and organic farming”.
Congratulating the party workers for the new office building, Khandu said that under Narendra Modi government entire NE states have achieved never before development and his unflinching love and care towards the region.
