BJP launches campaign to gather Delhiites feedback

Friday, 01 March 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Delhi BJP on Thursday launched a door-to-door campaign for gathering suggestions of the people for its manifesto and seeking their views on ‘Viksit Bharat’ ahead of Lok Sabha polls. In a press conference, Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva said the campaign will continue till March 15 in which the party workers will visit every household, markets and public places across the city carrying a form and boxes to gather feedback from the people. He said the party workers will also seek suggestions of separate groups like chartered accountants, professionals, sports persons, teachers, professors and theatre actors among others during the campaign.

The party workers will provide a small form to the people in which they will write down their suggestions on developed India, a better Delhi and their expectations from Prime Minister Narendra Modi before depositing it in the box.

A phone number (9090902024 ) was also released by the party for the people to give their suggestions by recording their voice. People can also given their feedback through downloading NaMo app, Sachdeva said. Apart from party workers, social media influencers will also join the campaign, he said. An LED van will also visit different areas of the city to encourage people to give their suggestions for developed India and a better Delhi, Sachdeva said, and added “the manifesto 2024 will be peoples’ manifesto based on their expectations”.

The Delhi BJP president claimed that the party fulfilled 529 of 530 suggestions provided by the people that were included in the manifesto for 2014 Lok Sabha polls. “In 2019, we delivered on 95 per cent or 222 of the 234 suggestions from people included in the manifesto,” he said.

Sachdeva emphasised on the role of election manifesto saying it was a game changer for the BJP in recent Assembly polls in Chhattisgarh. “In Chhattisgarh, everyone wrote off the BJP but the manifesto did the magic in the assembly polls. Our workers collected suggestions from door to door. The manifesto drafted on suggestions from the people paved the way for the formation of the BJP government in the state,” he said.

In the press conference, State Secretary Harsh Malhotra, State Media Chief Praveen Shankar Kapoor and Media Relations Head Vikram Mittal were present.

Earlier, senior Delhi BJP leaders including Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Ramvir Singh Bidhuri discussed the party’s preparations for the elections in Delhi. The BJP currently holds all the seven Lok Sabha seats.

The process of candidate selection on the seven seats is underway. The Delhi BJP election committee has submitted a list of around 25-30 probables to the central leadership for consideration in ticket distribution for the Lok Sabha seats in Delhi.

The Delhi Congress president Arvinder Singh Lovely also said that the party will gather feedback on people’s problems in Delhi and added that its manifesto for the Lok Sabha polls is likely to be released in a week. “Though we are contesting on just three seats, we are focusing on making a manifesto for Delhi. This entire exercise will be completed in a week, after which we will release a people’s manifesto,” Lovely said.  Rahul Gandhi held direct discussions with the common people of Delhi such as labourers, homeless people, teachers, youngsters, women, farmers and RWAs (Residents’ Welfare Associations) to get first-hand information about their problems, he added.

Through the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, Gandhi understood the problems of the common people and took up their issues with the authorities for solutions, the Congress leader said.A manifesto is the soul of any party, it is the vision and a mirror of its thoughts. The Congress has always worked for the welfare of the people and addressed their problems, Lovely further said.

He added, “The 50 issues in the Congress’ manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections will be based on the five pillars of Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra — youth, women, bhagidari, workers and farmers — to give justice to the lower and the middle classes, the downtrodden and exploited sections, industrial workers and contract workers and others.”
