BJP minority cell goes all out to woo Muslims

Party workers try to garner community's support for rally

While the entire Delhi unit of BJP is engaged in making the Narendra Modi rally on September 29 the ‘best in the country’, the minority cell of the party has pulled out all stops to ensure maximum participation of Muslims at the rally.

A meeting of the minority cell was convened by president Atif Rashid at the party office on Thursday, when the workers were instructed how to advertise the Japanese Park rally amongst the community members and mobilise them to attend it.

Maximum turnout

Rashid said work is being delegated to the workers and they are targeting at ensuring maximum turnout of the community members.

“The party workers will be mobilising the community members by distributing pamphlets, which will have the details of the timings and venue of the rally, over the next few days,” said Rashid.

“They will be printed both in Hindi and Urdu on either side of the leaf. Pamphlets will also be distributed outside all the mosques of the city on September 27, two days prior to the rally,” he said.

Sources said the cell members' have been given a charter of five basic elements which needs to be carried out as a part of the campaign amongst the minority communities.

Identifying areas

It includes identifying areas in the city which have a sizeable population of minorities.
The party workers will put up hoardings in those areas urging the community members to attend the rally.

Each Mandal president has been given a target of bringing in 100 Muslims, both men and women, to the rally.

There are 280 mandals of Bharatiya Janata Party in the city.

“The workers are directed to target housewives who are struggling to run the family due to the spiralling inflation. The cell is also targeting at Pasmanda Muslims (considered as OBC within the community),” said a BJP leader.

While the cell is making all efforts to maximise the attendance of the community members, the party leaders said they will not make any special request to the community members to turn up with skull caps and burqas at the venue.
