Inaugurating the new BJP central office on Deen Dayal Upadhyay (DDU) Marg, Modi recalled the contributions of the AB Vajpayee-led government and said his predecessor was successful in taking allies along, while navigating regional aspirations and sparking a new hope in the country.

Shah said he had done his research and came to know that with any area of over 1.70 lakh sq ft the BJP office is bigger than that of any other party in the world. "In thought, in action and in implementation, the BJP's core is truly democratic", the Prime Minister added.

"I want to thank Amit Bhai and his entire team, that worked hard to complete the work on the BJP HQ within the desired time frame", PM Modi said at the inauguration ceremony. The BJP's shift may put pressure on other parties to follow suit as nearly all of them have been functioning for decades out of bungalows.

The BJP had been working from Ashoka Road office till now and is likely to move operations to the new multi-storeyed modern construction by next week.

The dream of workers of Jana Sangh, the BJP's forerunner, and the BJP that they have an office of their own has been realised today, he said. BJP president Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj, Murli Manohar Joshi and other senior leaders were also present during the inauguration of party's new office. "That is why we are moving forward while taking everyone along to the best extent possible", he said inaugurating the new BJP headquarters.

He also emphasised that existence of several political parties in the nation adds to the beauty of democracy.
