Hyderabad: Highlighting that nation comes
first for BJP over everything else, BJP Sunday asked young
professionals in sectors like IT to join the party to make a
difference to how the country is ruled.

BJP president Nitin Gadkari and senior party leader M
Venkaiah Naidu interacted with a gathering of IT professionals
in the city tonight.

"Politics is not all that bad as it is portrayed in
the media. Instead of complaining about politics, you can join
politics and bring out a change in the system," this was the
message repeatedly told by the two leaders.
Quoting late C Rajagopalachari, Naidu said people
would only get the government they deserve.

"Rajaji said people deserve the government they get. A
lot of youngsters blame the government and politicians for
everything. Instead of cursing the system, youngsters should
try to make a contribution by joining politics," he said.

Compared with other parties, where dynastic politics
are deeply rooted, ordinary workers can also become leaders in
BJP, Naidu said.

"Dynasty is tasty to some people. But it is nasty to
democracy. Young leaders should be judged by their ability,
integrity and such other qualities, not by their lineage," he
said.

"Thankfully, I don`t belong to a political family. I
was an ordinary worker. But I became the president of the
party when it was in power at the Centre," he said.
