The Uttar Pradesh BJP has prepared a list of 1.35 lakh party workers, who would be virtually at the distance of a phone call from the relatives of patients admitted in government hospitals and would not hesitate to donate blood, the party said today.
Party workers believed that the directory will come to the rescue of patients in need of blood during critical hours.
UP BJP spokesperson Shalabh Mani Tripathi said- “This will help us in forging a blood relationship with the common and ordinary citizens of the state, and help us in realizing Antyodaya — the teachings and philosophy of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay — in letter and spirit.”
He further went on to explaining that party had come up with a directory of 1.35 lakh of its workers after conducting extensive blood tests.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath commenced his tour of various districts from Gorakhpur and dedicated this directory to the public’s cause.
Speaking on the occasion, he said, “The daily requirement of blood in the country is 120 lakh units, whereas only 60 lakh units of blood are available. This (the directory) will encourage voluntary blood donation to fill the gap.”
He went on to applaud the efforts and said – “The list of donors also comprises the names of those with rare blood groups and their details. This will help those in need of blood and prevent them from seeking the help of professional blood donors.”
The directory consists the names of the blood donors (district-wise), their blood groups, mobile numbers and residential addresses. All the 75 districts of the state had been represented in the directory.
“The enthusiasm level of the party workers was at an all-time high during the campaign. Over the last six days, blood test camps were held under the leadership of state BJP secretary Neelima Katiyar, after which the directory of blood donors was finalized,” Tripathi concluded.
