Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is the only party that can lead the nation to the top, said former Raipur district Collector O P Choudhary as he addressed the first press conference at Ekatma Parishar in Raipur on Thursday, after joining the BJP in the presence of party president Amit Shah in Delhi two days back. Choudhary said that the post and respect in BJP are earned through work and dedication to society people, not by flattery. BJP is the only party where a corporator from Kawadha can be a Chief Minister and a tea seller can become a Prime Minister, asserted Choudhary and attacked his opponents for criticising him on his decision to join politics.
“I have jumped into politics with sole objective of serving the people and there is no any specific reason. I always tried to do my best for the people in 13 years my career as an administrator,” said the former collector.

To a query, Choudhary said that importance of politics in cannot be ruled in democracy and added that former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh have been his source of inspiration.

“I had to face criticism from the opposition for attending education and health oriented programmes being organised in my area by my father. The Opposition used to say I was working for BJP,” he said. However, he downplayed the opposition saying different person has different point of view. Choudhary said that he is ready to take whatever responsibility is given to him by the party as he has not joined the party for any post. Choudhary, however, ignored the question regarding on which seat he is being fielded. “I am in the BJP on my own,” said Choudhary while rejecting the report that there was any bargaining between him and the party. Earlier, Choudhary was accorded a rousing welcome at Raipur airport and was escorted amidst procession by the party members.
