BJP meet opens with focus on State polls

Monday, 08 July 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Delhi BJP held its extended executive committee meeting at Jawahar Lal Nehru (JLN) stadium on Sunday to strategise for the 2025 Assembly polls with over 2,000 participants and senior party leaders.

The meeting was inaugurated by Union Minister Piyush Goyal by lighting the lamp and garlanding the pictures of Bharat Mata, Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay. On the executive meeting stage, the best-performing Mandal presidents and booth heads from the last Lok Sabha elections in Delhi's seven parliamentary constituencies were honoured, along with the Tridevs.

In his inaugural speech, Goyal congratulated the people of Delhi for winning all the seven seats. “This victory is not ordinary and Delhi's contribution is invaluable. The victory of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is only the victory of development work which has continuously served the countrymen in the interest of the country. The Modi government has done many works through many programs and schemes and he went before the countrymen for the future vision to make a developed India and this victory confirms the same,” he said.

Attacking the AAP government, he claimed that no scheme of the central government including Ayushman Yojana is allowed to be implemented inside Delhi. “To bring BJP to power in the upcoming 2025 assembly elections, we will have to work hard from now onwards so that after the double engine government comes to power in Delhi, we will be able to carry out development work continuously,” the Chief Speaker stated.

An exhibition was held in the stadium premises showcasing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's achievements over the past 10 years and the struggles of Delhi's workers over the past 18 months.

The  political proposal including Return Gift from the Public, Lack of Trust in Kejriwal Government, Government Drowned in Scams, Ayushman Bharat Scheme Not Implemented in Delhi, Water Board a Den of Corruption, Thirsty Public, Minister on Hunger Strike, Roads No Longer Walkable, the victim of public transport transparency, Misuse in the name of women's safety and Deaths due to pollution proposed by Bidhuri and seconded by MP Yogendra Chandolia, and supported by MPs Bansuri Swaraj and Praveen Khandelwal. After the discussion and coordination, MP Manoj Tiwari re-endorsed the political proposal.

 Delhi BJP President Virendra Sachdeva said that the people of Delhi have expressed their blessings by giving all the seven seats to the BJP and answered Kejriwal's corruption. Attacking AAP and Congress alliance, he said, “This election was a coalition of two failed parties who fought together for their own selfish interests and hence their defeat matters. The people of Delhi have said that they are with the right and not with the corrupt. There is a government in Delhi which is only playing the game of bail from jail.”

Sachdeva alleged that Kejriwal shamed Delhi by building a luxurious bungalow worth more than 50 crores for himself during the Covid period. “The people of Delhi are yearning for every drop of water today. The Delhi government, which promised to provide water through taps, is a government sold to the tanker mafia. Apart from committing big scams in the Jal Board, the Delhi government has a long list of scams,” he claimed, while appealing to his workers to work four times harder than they have done in the Lok Sabha to uproot the Kejriwal government involved in corruption from Delhi.

All the seven BJP MPs also shared their roadmap. Rajya Sabha BJP MP Dr. Sudhanshu Trivedi concluded the meeting and said, “In this election, the opposition's biggest weapon in Delhi was confusion, but the people of Delhi have seen so much confusion in the last 10 years that they are now capable of responding to it correctly.” Taking a jibe at the opposition parties, he said, “The Congress needs to repeatedly look inside the AAP, which has switched off the Congress in Punjab, halved it in Gujarat, and wiped it out in Delhi, yet they have forgiven them.”

He said that those who pushed Delhi into the river of alcohol neither understood their performance nor received the sympathy of the public. “Therefore, the public message is clear that this time we will successfully win two-thirds of the seats in Delhi with a long leap,” he said.

The General Secretary of the organization, Pawan Rana, discussed organizational matters and reviewed the tasks to be undertaken with the district front presidents. At the executive platform, the mandal presidents who delivered the best results in the last parliamentary elections from all seven parliamentary constituencies of Delhi, as well as the best booth chiefs and Tridev, were honored.

The BJP has not won an Assembly election in the national capital for over two decades, while the AAP has secured consecutive victories in 2015 and 2020 with significant majorities. Currently, the BJP holds eight seats in the 70-member Assembly, whereas the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP has 61 seats.

Raaj Kumar Anand, the MLA from Patel Nagar, was disqualified after he quit AAP to contest the Lok Sabha election on a BSP ticket.
