Sagar, MP, Nov 13 (UNI) BJP's Madhya Pradesh unit President Narendra Singh Tomar today said corruption still remained a challenge though the state government had controlled it at top level and was committed to curbing the problem at the grass-root level.
Mr Tomar was addressing the inaugural session of party's executive meet, which was curtailed from two days to a one-day affair following the death of party's state treasurer and MP Vijay Khandelwal, who died in Nagpur last night following renal failure. However, other programmes like 'Bhoomipujan' for setting up a medical college and a public meeting scheduled here tomorrow remain unchanged, party sources said.
''The United Progressive Alliance government is following discriminatory attitude with the state as the Centre do not want any development in BJP's tenure. This attitude would be protested,'' said Mr Tomar.
He said regional-level 'Vikas Shivirs' enhanced the momentum of BJP workers. BJP also gained mass-base among Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and minorities. Work plan at grass-root level should be chalked out to benefit such sections, he added.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, former Chief Minister Sunderlal Patwa, former Union Minister Satyanarayan Jatiya, BJP state General Secretary Anil Dave and senior leader Kaptan Singh Solanki were among the prominent leaders who took part in the meeting.
