DEHRADUN, 30 Jun: Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) National President and MP from Mumbai North-Central, Poonam Mahajan addressed a Mega Virtual Rally for Uttarakhand State BJYM volunteers yesterday.
BJP and its youth wing BJYM have been actively connecting and engaging with their volunteers via virtual medium all through this lockdown. In fact, BJYM was the first political organisation to hold its National Executive meeting via video conferencing on 3 June.
Addressing the ‘Yuva Samvad Rally’, Poonam Mahajan praised the relief work done by the Morcha activists in Uttarakhand during the lockdown period. She said that Uttarakhand is a perfect example of a state where the government and socio-political organisations worked in tandem to ensure service to the most vulnerable.

She said that people in other states came to Uttarakhand for spiritual awakening and, today, when Maharshtra has a dysfunctional government leading to complete breakdown of the system, the only guiding light was the venerable Governor, Bhagat Singh Koshyari, who is Uttarakhand’s gift to the people of Maharashtra.
She mentioned the All-Weather Road, Rishikesh-Karanprayag railway line projects of the Central government and the Prasad Yojana, the decision to set up a ‘youth commission’ by the Trivendra Singh Rawat Government as steps that were going to redefine the future of Uttarakhand.
