Rolling out a blueprint for BJP’s strategy for the 2024 general elections, a team of senior  party leaders has decided to strengthen the grassroots across the country for better performance.

A four-member taskforce committee of the Saffron party under the leadership of National Vice-President Baijayant Panda has identified around 74,000 booths across the country for strengthening the party’s hold in some, and to gain ground in others where it has not been able to win so far.

A meeting of the committee was chaired by Panda at the party’s headquarters on Monday. It was attended by party leaders Dilip Ghosh, CT Ravi and Lal Singh Arya, all members of the committee.

As per sources, discussions were held in the meeting on the strategy to strengthen the party in 74,000 ‘weak booths’ across the country. The committee has been working on a strategy and it would seek to implement it in three months. The mission is to maximise the party’s reach and electoral wins. The committee will also ensure   BJP does not lose any of the seats it has already won.

 “Wherever shortcomings are there in the organisation at the grassroots, those should be tackled as part of electoral preparations,” said a member of the committee.

“The party has taken Panda into confidence again as he has done a tremendous job in Assam and other parts of the country. The party in Odisha will be immensely benefited as Panda is heading the taskforce and he understands the political ambience in the State like the back of his hands,” said senior BJP leader Pradeep Purohit.

 “The committee will analyse the reasons of defeats for BJP in the last general elections across the country and work on the implementation of the strategy to ensure victories. It will also make sure that the party does not lose any of the seats it has already won,” said Purohit.
