BJP to launch door-to-door campaign in Delhi
New Delhi: Apparently taking cue from Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP's campaign, Delhi BJP will launch a a massive door-to-door contact programme from Thursday in a bid to give momentum to its election preparations for December polls.
Delhi BJP Chief Vijay Goel will launch the four-day contact programme 'Ghar Ghar Bhajapa' on October 17 from a polling booth in Majnu Ka Tila in his Chandni Chowk Assembly constituency in the national capital, where the BJP is hoping to return to power after 15 years.
Apart from Goel, senior party leaders including Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly V K Malhotra would be going from door to door in Greater Kailash, senior leader Dr Harshwardhan in Krishna Nagar, former Delhi BJP Chief Vijender Gupta in Rohini, Jagdhish Mukhi in Janakpuri and Mayor of South Delhi Municipal Corporation Sarita Choudhary would be holding the campaign in Mehrauli.
"Also those national level leaders who would be present in Delhi would be asked to participate in the campaign. We have formed 11,763 teams for each booths of 70 Assembly Constituencies comprising of over 3,80 lakh workers, who would visit the houses accompanied by a senior party leader or worker falling under a particular polling booth area. This will give momentum to our election preparations," he told reporters.
The BJP's move comes in the backdrop of Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party, which will be making its electoral debut in the Delhi election, taking to door-to-door campaiging in a major way to establish a connect with voters.
Like the AAP, the BJP is now also taking "feedback forms" from electors on issues like hike in power tariff.
Elaborating about the programme, Goel said we will ask the electors to give their valuable feedback about the 15 year rule of Congress government and "also tell them how BJP could provide solution to the problems."
