Delhi: BJP plans 5000 rallies in 20 days to woo voters, fight against AAP
New Delhi : With only a couple of weeks left for the crucial Delhi elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has planned around 5000 small rallies to woo voters in their fight against Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party. If the said figure comes true then the party will be holding around 3-4 rallies daily in all 70 constituencies.
Besides this, the Delhi BJP unit has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to personally address at least 10 election rallies in the national capital. Most of the public meetings are expected to happen at the unauthorized colonies.
A person close to the party told a leading news portal that the high command has directed holding small rallies at several places for an effective outreach to the voters.
“It has been our experience that small gatherings are more impactful than rallies featuring 1,000 people. It becomes a bit difficult to continue the momentum after holding a mega rally or two. Given the massive electoral groundwork involved, our aim would be to hold small meetings for ‘target’ groups,” said an office-bearer of BJP told a portal.
Meanwhile, there are reports which claim that senior BJP leaders, including several Union leaders, will be a part of the poll campaign. “There will be a proper roster of 100 leaders who will be expected to hold three to four such small rallies or public meetings each,” sources told NDTV.
On Friday, BJP had announced its first list of candidates, revealing 57 names out of 70.
Delhi will go for votes on February 8 and the counting of votes will be done on February 11. Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora had said that over 13, 000 polling stations will be set up in the capital city for the upcoming Assembly polls.
