I know that the entire country is excited and Berbicians are mobilised because of how badly they have been treated by this new coalition Government. Some feel that he is their only hope and the party is the only way that they will be able to get back on their feet,” the source said.On Friday, the Party’s Central Executive Committee and its entire leadership were locked in discussion about a number of fundamental issues which needed their approval.“The Programme for Babu Jaan has been set. The speakers have already been identified. We are united and we are strong.
