BJP MP Tejasvi Surya on Monday assumed charge as the new president of the party’s youth wing in the national capital and said that “we will work towards building political workers for 21st century India”.
Mr Surya has succeeded Lok Sabha Mumbai MP Poonam Mahajan after completion of her tenure.
“Today, I officially took charge as President of BJYM with blessings from Poonam Mahajan Ji. BJYM will strive to conquer the unconquered; will work towards building political workers for 21st century India; will work towards strengthening our civilisational state,” Mr Surya said in a tweet.
In another tweet, he called BJP a party of “karyakartas” and thanked Mahajan for effective leadership to BJYM.
“BJP is party of karyakartas – who serve the party despite facing severe personal odds. BJYM pledges to work hard to ensure sacrifices of our karyakartas don’t go in vain. I thank Poonam Mahajan Ji for giving effective leadership to BJYM; we will continue her good work,” he tweeted.
Mr Surya also held a roadshow from city’s Ambedkar International Centre to the central office earlier today.
In 1999, when the Kargil War took place, Surya was just nine-years-old. This however did not deter him from trying to help those affected. A young Tejasvi Surya had made paintings and then then sold them to raise funds for the Army Welfare Fund.
The Twitter handle also shared a news clipping about the same.
His efforts to improve the lives of people did not end here. “Right out of school, Tejasvi Surya founded youth advocacy organization, Arise India. He actively worked for education of children of migrant labourers, supported economically weak girl children, bettering infrastructure in government schools and many more,” the BJYM tweets.
When the country flung into a war at Kargil, 9 year-old @Tejasvi_Surya made paintings, sold, raised funds for the Army Welfare Fund.
As a MP now, he continues to work for the welfare of our army men and their families.#BJYMKaSurya pic.twitter.com/m4BIfAQcXq
