Maintaining the Bharatiya Janata Party’s electoral campaign momentum after the visit of its national president Amit Shah earlier this month, the deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Sushil Kumar Modi, is slated to arrive in Dehradun today while Union Minister Uma Bharti will be visiting Haldwani later this month.
As part of the BJP’s Bharat ke Mann ki Baat campaign, the deputy Chief Minister of Bihar will arrive in the provisional State Capital on Sunday while Union Minister for Drinking Water and Sanitation, Uma Bharti will reach Haldwani on February 25, as per the decision taken by the party’s central leadership, informed the BJP State media in-charge Devendra Bhasin. In Dehradun, Modi will interact with media persons and also hold discussions with ex-servicemen. During her visit to Haldwani on February 25, the Union Minister Uma Bharti will address a press conference and also interact with representatives of farmers. The party’s State media-in-charge further informed that as part of the Bharat ke Mann ki Baat programme, in Uttarakhand two publicity vehicles of the BJP are currently visiting various areas in the Haridwar and Nainital Lok Sabha constituencies.
The Bharat ke Mann ki Baat campaign was launched earlier this month by the party’s national president. The purpose of this month-long exercise is to seek suggestions from about 10 crore people from various sections of society across the nation in order to help the party prepare its manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections.
It is pertinent to mention here that while the national level leaders of the Congress are yet to start campaigning in Uttarakhand, the BJP became more active with the visit of its national president Amit Shah in the first week of February to Dehradun where he addressed booth level workers of the party from Haridwar and Tehri Lok Sabha constituencies in a Trishakti Sammelan.
Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is slated to visit Rudrapur in Udham Singh Nagar district on February 14 where he will launch developmental schemes and address a public gathering. In addition to this, other senior party leaders including Uttar Pradesh Chief minister Yogi Adityanath, Union Minister of State for External Affairs, VK Singh and Uttar Pradesh deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma are also slated to address Trishakti Sammelan programmes for different Lok Sabha constituencies in the near future.
