National Executive Meeting of BJP Human Rights Cell
“Growth of a country cannot be judged solely in terms of its financials or GDP or armories. The real growth comes in terms of well-being of the inhabitants and their rights being valued. It is the duty of the BJP workers to ensure that the human rights of not a single person of the country are violated and those who are being exploited should get justice,” said national vice president of BJP Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyari while concluding the national executive meeting of BJP Human Rights Cell in New Delhi on August 5.
