BJP National President Shri JP Nadda addressed the ‘Booth Empowerment Campaign’ event at the party headquarters in New Delhi on 25 May, 2022. The BJP started a week-long campaign from 25th May to May 31 to strengthen the organisation and boost outreach activities in around 74,000 electoral booths across the country where it is relatively weak.
To steer the campaign, the BJP has formed a committee chaired by party National Vice-President Shri Baijayant Panda. Party National Vice-President Shri Dilip Ghosh, National General Secretary Shri CT Ravi, and the party’s National SC Morcha President Shri Lal Singh Arya are its members. The meeting was attended by BJP National General Secretary (Org.) Shri BL Santhosh, Booth campaign committee members, several Union ministers and leaders from across the country.
The party has identified around 74,000 booths across the country that are to be strengthened under the campaign. All party MPs have been asked to strengthen 100 weak booths in their respective constituencies and a 30-member team will be formed for the purpose. Similarly, party MLAs have been given the task of strengthening 10 weaker booths in their constituencies. The weaker booths have been identified on the basis of the results of the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections and state assembly polls.
As part of this campaign, BJP leaders will have to form a team, train them and then carry out outreach activities in the area that comes under these weaker polling booths and special focus will be on beneficiaries of various government schemes. The broader idea behind this exercise is to expand the BJP’s footprint and increase its tally in the next Lok Sabha elections.
BJP National President Shri JP Nadda inaugurated the ‘Booth Empowerment Campaign’ by lighting the lamp and addressing the leaders. Speaking to the gathering Shri Nadda said ‘Booth Jeeto Chunab Jeeto’ is not just a slogan, this is a fact. The way to power comes through the Booth, Booth is our real strength, Booth is the source of power, if Booth is strong then the party will be strong.
