Elected local representatives are ‘brand-ambassadors’, says Baghel

Terming elected local urban bodies’ representatives ‘brand ambassadors’ of organization, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Friday called upon them to work actively for the sake of the party as well as the government.

Baghel was speaking at the felicitation function of the elected local urban bodies’ representatives of the party, held here at local Balbeer Singh Juneja Indoor Stadium, Budha Para.

The felicitation programme ‘Janmat Ka Samman’ was organised by state Congress and Chhattisgarh in-charge of AICC P.L. Punia was especially present on this occasion.

Calling the elected representatives ‘brand ambassadors’ Baghel said “you are the one who transform into action the policies framed by the government”.

Further congratulating on the clean sweep in the mayoral elections, Baghel proclaimed that echo of the victory will be echoed in entire nation. However, he further cautioned the elected members to work actively in interest of organization and said “As we have won in all the 10 municipal corporations there is tremendous responsibility in our shoulder to live up to the expectations of the people”, Baghel said.

Expressing gratitude towards the grass root level workers for an impressive victory in urban bodies’ election, he further congratulated the elected members.

Senior Congress leader and Health Minister T.S. Singhdeo termed the elections of wards comparatively tougher than that of the MLAs and MPs.

Home Minister Tamradhwaj Sahu on the other hand warned the elected representatives to be careful of people surrounding them trying to be closer for their personal gain claiming to be their close relatives.
