Mysore/Mysuru: City BJP unit celebrated the party’s Foundation Day at a programme organised under the aegis of the party’s Trade and Commerce Cell, at the party Office at Chamarajapuram yesterday.

Speaking on the occasion, City BJP President T.S.

Recalling the growth of the BJP since its formation 41 years ago, Srivatsa said that the party, which had only two members in the Lok Sabha in the 1980’s, has now grown into a huge party with over 300 LS members. He called upon the party workers to carry forward the legacy left behind by the founding fathers of the party.
