According to officials, the BJP’s top brass, including national president JP Nadda and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, will inaugurate the Bharatiya Janata Party’s most prominent office in the northeastern region on Sunday.
The ceremony will take place on October 8.
This office in Guwahati will be the headquarters of the state. With state-of-the-art infrastructure, the Vijay BJP office will be spread over 95,000 square feet the building will have six floors and an open rooftop premise.
The new BJP Assam office will have a 350-seat auditorium and two high-tech conference rooms with a capacity of 40 people each. It will also have five meeting rooms, each accommodating 50 people. There will also be a large press conference room, reception area, and canteen.
The foundation stone for this office of the saffron party in Assam was laid by the then-party president Amit Shah in February 2019.
“We’re looking forward to top leaders coming to Guwahati for the inaugural of this office and It is a matter of immense pleasure and pride for us to see how this office has taken shape,” a state office bearer overlooking the arrangements told a news agency ANI.
“Assam is the gateway to the north-east, and it is the state of Assam that has actually opened the fortunes for our party in this region, so it is only fair that we have a large office here,” said another Assam state office bearer.
Earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a special emphasis on the progress of the north-east region through various programs including the PM himself making over 50 visits to the area.
In 2016 the BJP came to power in Assam for the first time breaking the record term of the Congress party and becoming the only party in the state apart from the Congress to have back-to-back governments as it repeated its term.
In 2017, the BJP formed a government in Manipur and also reaffirmed their government in 2022.
Another first by BJP in the region was the formation of the government in Tripura breaking the Left rule of a couple of decades in 2018. The BJP continues to hold power in Arunachal Pradesh and in the coalition governments of Meghalaya and Nagaland.
