Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president J P Nadda on Wednesday said the ensuing Lok Sabha elections will be a battle between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Addressing party workers from Mumbai's western suburbs during his visit to the metropolis, Nadda said under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership, India is well on its way to become the third-largest economy in the world from fifth now.

Attacking anti-BJP opposition parties, he alleged that they were either dynastic or steeped in corruption.

"You have to reach out to voters and seek their support for a fresh mandate (for BJP at the Centre). First-time voters in the last ten years have seen only development and not corruption like previous governments," asserted the BJP president, referring to the decade-long rule of the Modi administration that started in 2014. He said the Lok Sabha elections, likely to be held in April-May, will be a fight between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Dynastic politics and corruption will lead to destruction, Nadda warned and highlighted the BJP's development agenda. Earlier in the day, Nadda, who is on a two-day visit, met BJP office-bearers from all the 36 assembly constituencies in Mumbai besides party MPs and MLAs from the metropolis.

In his address, Nadda asked BJP leaders from Mumbai to ensure that the party ideology reaches the last person in society and urged them to give a befitting reply to opposition attacks on the saffron outfit and its government. He advised BJP leaders to extensively use social media and seek support of prominent personalities on issues of public interest.

Nadda also chaired Election Management Committee's meetings for all the six Lok Sabha constituencies in Mumbai as part of preparations for the national polls. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP and its then-ally, the undivided Shiv Sena, had won three seats each in Mumbai.

In the Maharashtra Assembly polls held in October that year, the BJP won 16 of the 36 seats in the city, while 14 were bagged by the Sena.

The state, where the BJP is in power in alliance with the Shiv Sena led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and the Ajit Pawar-headed NCP, has a 288-member legislative Assembly.
