On the birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 17, the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) will launch a four-month-long drive to ‘discourage’ people from spitting and urinating in the open, teach morning walkers in parks about the benefits of yoga and set up yoga clubs.
“The BJYM has decided to launch a nationwide ‘panch-kranti’ abhiyan which will begin on the PM’s birthday and go on till January 12, the birthday of Swami Vivekananda —- also celebrated as Youth Day,” said C P Joshi, state president of BJYM and BJP MP from Chittorgarh, while addressing mediapersons in Jaipur Wednesday.
The five programmes that are part of the campaign encompass the chief initiatives of the Modi government in the form of Yoga Kranti, Clean India, Skill India, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao and Make in India campaigns.
“We will put up stickers in dark spots – where people urinate, spit or throw garbage – and ask them not to do so,” said Ajeet Mandan, BJYM’s state spokesperson. “We have also planned to clean such areas over the weekends,” he said.
Among other things, they will also clean statues of national icons in their localities.
As for Make in India, BJYM volunteers will visit colleges and tell students about the initiatives of the government, and take up other programmes in a similar manner.
In Rajasthan, the programme will be taken up through a team of BJYM’s five ‘kranti-doots’ or revolutionary messengers, each at the district and mandal level. A state-level workshop in this regard will be inaugurated by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday.
