The reception function was held at the residence of pradhan, Heirok Part III gram panchayat, N Tangba by following COVID-19 SOPs.

Speaking at the occasion, minister Radheshyam accorded warm welcome to the new BJP members and appealed for extending every possible cooperation by leaving aside political differences in taking up developmental activities.

While urging all the political workers to avoid enmity between one another during election time because of political differences, he exhorted the workers to help the poor and the weak instead. “Only then, love will be instilled in the society, which will ultimately make the society a peaceful one,” he stated.

He went on to say that whether MLA or pradhan, elected representatives should look after the needs of the people equally irrespective of whether the person is his/her voter or not. “Being a representative and unable to see the people equally is pointless,” added the minister.
