Sharma stated that BJP is always strives for the progress of traders, labourers, farmers and youth and there have been many changes in the country because of which India has been admired around the world.
"The party was looking for fearless, settled and high thinking youth and advocate Sidhu fulfils these parameters. Sidhu will be given full respect and great responsibility within the party," he added.
Farmers and trade unions were also protesting against the visit of the BJP president. Protestors alleged that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at centre is working against the farmers.
