The spirit of mission which existed prior to independence no more exists in Congress and it has transformed into a family company. People now look up to BJP to carry the nation's ethos, spirit and the mission of reform and BJP can't fail in it. Our training program is designed so that we not only promote the best people but also groom our party workers to satisfy aspirations of the nation."

In the 2nd phase training of under the "Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay Prashikshan Mahabhiyan" the training of all Morcha's and spokesperson, etc. has been initiated and initiation of this phase can be said to be the third phase of trainings.
