In an effort to retrieve lost ground post local bodies elections, the BJP workers have been asked to fan out across the state through eight public rallies of farmers lined up from March 16 to 28. The strategy was part of the meeting presided over by the party’s state president Vijay Rupani on Tuesday in the presence of national vice-president of the BJP Om Mathur.
Rupani is implementing the advice by national president Amit Shah that the workers should shrug off despair and busy themselves in the field to take up the challenge of winning 2017 Assembly election. He chaired a meeting of all organisational leaders and elected members to chalk out a detailed schedule of mass contact in March itself. The erosion of the BJP’s base in the farming community, mainly of Patidars, reflected in its bad performance in the local body elections.
Rupani said that the rallies will cover each taluka, each village and each group. They will apprise them of pro-farmer welfare schemes of the government. A beginning will be made from Kutch district on March 16.
