WITH ONE eye on improving Lok Sabha’s party count in 2024, BJP President JP Nadda will embark on a 120-day nationwide tour starting next month, focusing on areas where the party did not fare well in the 2019 election.
Nadda will begin her tour in the first week of December and Uttarakhand will be the first state on her route, BJP secretary general Arun Singh told reporters. December 5th is the probable date for the start of the tour.
Singh said the BJP chairman will visit each state, hold virtual meetings with the heads of all stand units, the party’s smallest organizational entity, and meet with all party MPs and MPs in addition to its senior officials. leaders, including district leaders, in each state. He will also visit some booths to interact with ground workers, he said.
“The president of the BJP will be the only leader of a national party who would go to the states and even address the stand and mandal leaders,” Singh said.
Prior to the 2019 election, Nadda’s predecessor – Home Secretary Amit Shah – identified around 115 seats in states where the party machinery was weak. The BJP made a huge improvement in its performance in those constituencies in the polls after Shah went on a long tour.
Singh said the BJP will work hard and take whatever steps are necessary to ensure it wins the seats the party lost in the last Lok Sabha polls. For this, he said, the party would also take all the programs of the Narendra Modi government in all parts of the country.
In fact, the states led by the BJP will be giving a presentation to Nadda on various aspects of their work, including the implementation of central government programs and how to raise their awareness further.
With Assembly elections in four states – West Bengal, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Assam – set to take place in the first half of next year, Nadda will also examine the party’s readiness, Singh said. He will spend three days in large states and two in others.
During his tour, the BJP leader will interact with his allies and organize public programs, Singh said. He will speak with personalities from different fields in the respective fields. Besides evaluating the activities, Nadda will discuss future strategies with members of the core group of the respective states.
