Sharing the details of the programmes organized across the country, Rajya Sabha member and BJP National General Secretary Arun Singh said, "It is a matter of great pride and satisfaction for the party and it also gives immense pleasure to share that the BJP workers did exceptionally well in "Sewa Diwas" and exceeded all goals and targets set for the day to serve the people .
