DEHRADUN: Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah held a series of meetings with party members in Dehradun on Tuesday and sought feedback on the party organisation in the hill state, where the Trivendra Singh Rawat-headed BJP government has completed six months in office. Shah held six meetings with party members on the first day of his two day “pravas” (stay), his first visit to Uttarakhand since the BJP won 57 seats in the 70-member assembly. “Sangathan sarkar banati hai.

Sarkar sangathan nahi banati hai (It is the organisation which makes the government. The government does not build the organisation),” a BJP member who attended the first meeting at a local hotel quoted Shah as saying. The member, who did not wish to be identified, told ET that Shah gave party members full opportunity during the meeting to make suggestions about strengthening coordination between the party and the state government.

At the first meeting, about 200 party leaders, including all MLAs, MPs, former chief ministers, former MPs, former MLAs and those who lost the assembly polls, were invited to share their ideas with Shah, who was accompanied by the CM and state BJP chief Ajay Bhatt.

Shah was concerned about the issues which require the central government’s attention, another BJP member said.

Former chief minister Vijay Bahuguna’s son and MLA Saurabh Bahuguna highlighted the problems faced by industrial units in his Sitarganj seat, for instance, and told Shah that 42 units had shut down. The suggestions apparently impressed Shah, who asked Bahuguna to send a brief note to his office in Delhi. Rajesh Shukla, who had defeated former CM Harish Rawat in Kichcha seat in the assembly polls, brought to Shah’s notice the financial problems faced by the Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture in his area.
