BJP to launch campaign to expand party base in state

The state BJP will launch “Vistarak” (expansion) programme from July 1 wherein party workers will spend 15 days at places assigned to them and work towards strengthening the party base.

A meeting to finalise the modalities of the programme was held at the BJP headquarters in Bengaluru on Wednesday. Speaking on the occasion, BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa said that as many as 20,000 workers will participate in the programme and all the 54,431 electoral booths in the state will be covered.

The booth reach-out initiative is said to have been one of the factors that helped the BJP win the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

“The workers will visit places they have been assigned and stay there for 15 days. They will interact with voters, create awareness about the programmes of the NDA government, expose the misdeeds of the state government and visit local leaders,” Yeddyurappa said.

Yeddyurappa accused the state government of claiming credit for programmes initiated by the Centre. The state government was providing rice to the poor under the Anna Bhagya scheme utilising the grains provided by the Centre. He said the Centre was procuring rice from the open market at Rs 32 per kg and providing it to states at Rs 3. However, the state government took full credit for the Anna Bhagya scheme without even mentioning the subsidy provided by the Centre.

MP and former state BJP president Pralhad Joshi charged the state government with not cooperating with the Centre in implementing the Ujjwala Yojana, of providing free LPG connections to the poor.
