The office-bearers of the Yuva, Mahila, Kisan, OBC, SC and ST Morchas leaders attended the combined ‘BJP National Executive Committee meeting of all the Morchas’ at NDMC Civic Centre on May 17, 2018 in New Delhi. Addressing the gathering Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi urged party Karyakartas to work hard to reach out to the people and focus on youngsters ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Asserting that the era of dynasty politics has been replaced by the politics of hard work, Shri Modi also wanted the BJP’s several Morchas to ensure that the party has “young, articulate and balanced spokespersons, who can go and speak on all social media platforms to reach out to people at every level”.
The Prime Minister reiterated that every leader of the party should engage deeply in ensuring that welfare and flagship programmes reach the villages. “The era of dynasty politics is over. Now it’s time for ‘parishram vadi’. The hard working BJP has been appreciated and supported by people,” Shri Modi was quoted as saying by party National General Secretary Shri Bhupender Yadav, who briefed the media over the day-long meeting.
All Morcha activists have been asked to help the youth and first-time voters to get enrolled in the voters’ list. “The PM kept talking about youngsters. He wanted the party to reach out to youngsters in every sector — young students, farmers, Dalits and tribals. His speech for more than an hour was very positive and nice,” said a participant.
The activists should also conduct programmes at the Mandal and booth level, and hold several meetings in the upcoming year he said.
“Work towards winning 50 per cent of the votes in the general election”
Addressing the office-bearers of the party’s Morchas, BJP National President Shri Amit Shah asked them to work towards winning 50 per cent of the votes in the general election.
He said the party, through its April 14 to May 05 campaign, had reached out to 22 crore families with the government’s flagship programmes. The outreach should be completed before the 2019 election.
In the last four years of Modi government, various government welfare schemes have benefited over 22 crore people across the country. Now, in a run up to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP President tasked workers to reach out to these 22 crore beneficiaries to win them over as potential voters. The PM also asked to use the NaMo app to get connected to 22 crore families in the country.
