"Anna Bande Reoriyaan, Mud Mud Apneyaan Nu" aptly explains state BJP spokesperson
Office bearer donates books to party library
7/16/2020 12:15:45 AM

JAMMU, July 15: The famous Punjabi saying, “Anna Bande Reoriyaan, Mud Mud Apneyaan Nu” which translates, “Blind to welfare of others the one who reaps benefits for his own near and dear ones”, aptly explains an act of a Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) spokesperson, who instead of donating something to needy, donated a set of books to the library of its own party and attempted to portray it as a big donation for a great cause.
According to a news item published at various media platforms, a BJP spokesperson had donated a set of three volumes of a book titled, “Shilpi” to Nanaji Deshmukh Library of Jammu and Kashmir BJP. “If the books would have been donated to some public library from where the general public can also gain some knowledge, then it can be called a donation. But such act of donating doesn’t even fit in the definition of a donation as the Spokesperson is also from BJP while the library (Nanaji Deshmukh Library) in which books have been donated are also of BJP and the donation is also handed over to BJP leaders and that too at BJP headquarters. How this act can be called a donation”, a politician said adding that it appeared to be a family affair which was given publicity for reasons best known to them.
The politician further said that it was also interesting to notice that the books were also primarily useful for the BJP workers and the leaders. “The books are not of some writers, who have been readership across the political divides but the donated books were dedicated to former BJP national president Kushabhai Thakrey. No doubt such books are important but primarily the party workers have been asked to read the books related to the party ideologues, which means mostly the BJP workers would read the books”, he added.
He further added that the intention behind donation was also clear from the press release circulated in the media in which it was written that, “The incharge Library thanked the spokesperson for donating books and said that it will help the party activists to add to their knowledge about important events in the lives of great leaders BJP, who devoted their whole lives for strengthening their organization and the nationalist forces while leading simple lives”.
“From the praises showered by Incharge library over BJP spokesperson for donating books, it appears that J&K BJP’s library had so far without the books on the life of senior party ideologue Kushabhai Thakrey and the donation had filled that gap in the library's catalogue”, another leader said, adding that instead of indulging on such tactics the political party leaders should involve themselves in real donations and for real public welfare rather than for publicity.
