BJP star campaigners throng Capital to win voters’ hearts and minds

Wednesday, 22 May 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

As the election campaigning in the national Capital is coming to an end in just two days, BJP’s star campaigners including Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, BJP President JP Nadda, Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Rajasthan Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma and Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Tuesday held non stop rallies and roadshows to support their party candidates in the city.

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari along with other senior leaders addressed three election rallies in Vikas Puri Vidhan Sabha in West Delhi, Moti Nagar in New Delhi and Karawal Nagar in North East. Extending his support to West Delhi’s candidate Kamaljeet Sehrawat, New Delhi’s Bansuri Swaraj, and North East’s Manoj Tiwari, he appealed to the people of Delhi to choose BJP if they want the pace of development to continue as it was going on for the last five years.

He said, “Since the Central Government has dedicated the 16-lane Dwarka Expressway to the people, the journey of an hour can be completed in minutes. Similarly, UER-2 Expressway connecting Bawana, Rohini, Mundka, Najafgarh, Dwarka and IGI Airport and Gurugram is under construction in the final stage at a cost of 7.7 thousand crores,” adding that BJP seeks votes on the basis of development and on the basis of the report card of the last 10 years.

“Choose BJP to make the country a 5 trillion economy, to become the third largest economy of the world and especially to free Delhi from water pollution, air pollution and noise pollution,” he said.

Rajnath Singh held roadshows in support of BJP candidate for the reserved seat of North west Delhi Yogendra Chandolia and East Delhi’s Harsh Malhotra. His campaigning witnessed scores of party supporters cheering for him while fluttering party flags. During his roadshow in North west Delhi’s Budh Vihar, Singh said, "Yogendra Chandolia is a popular person in his constituency. He has been working as a BJP worker for a long time. With the crowd that you can see here, it is certain that he will win with a huge margin."

Further attacking Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the INDIA alliance, he said, "INDI Alliance's strength is weakening day after day. Delhi CM-AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal is out of jail only until 1st June. He has shamed the people of Delhi with the kind of things he has done."

Nadda also held a roadshow in Palam area of South Delhi to support party's candidate Ramvir Singh Bidhuri from South Delhi. During his roadshow, the BJP chief attacked Kejriwal and said, "Aam Aadmi Party has deep relations with anti-national forces. In Punjab elections also there was an allegation that they got funding from terrorists. Arvind Kejriwal has not given any answer on this till now. They are examples of urban naxalism. We will get 400 plus seats in the favour of Modi.” The BJP leader also held a roadshow to support his party’s candidate Harsh Malhotra from East Delhi.

Chouhan also held back to back three roadshows in the evening to support South Delhi’s candidate Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, North west Delhi’s Yogendra Chandolia, and North east Delhi’s Manoj Tiwari and claimed that the BJP is sweeping all seven seats in Delhi. While the one in the favour of Bidhuri was held at 5:00 pm in the evening, the next one in support of Chandolia was conducted at 7:00 pm followed by one in support for Tiwari at 9:00 pm.

The Rajasthan Chief Minister also held a roadshow in support of Sehrawat in West Delhi at 5:00 pm in the evening while he addressed a public gathering in South Delhi to seek votes in favour of Bidhuri at 8:30 pm. His counterpart from Goa took part in Purvanchal Morcha Maha Sammelan to appeal to the public to vote for his party's candidates. He asked the people to look at the development work carried out by the BJP and seeked blessings for Chandolia and Tiwari.

Meanwhile, AAP Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal held a 1 km long roadshow in support of joint INDIA and Congress candidate Kanhaiya Kumar for North East Delhi in Bhajanpura. Scores of supporters of both AAP and Congress gathered to witness the campaign of the INDIA alliance. AAP and Congress are in a seat sharing arrangement of four and three seats respectively.
