In a letter to party workers,O P Kohli lists dos and donts,asks MCD councillors to brush up image
To avoid a repeat of the Assembly election results,the Delhi BJP is thrashing out its strategy,with clear orders to MCD councillors to pull up their socks ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.
In a letter to party workers,Delhi unit president Om Prakash Kohli has put in print the 12-point policy they must work on. Our party structure,especially in the lower cadres,is very weak. There are no regular meetings nor there is any interaction between the lower cadres and the seniors, the letter says.
The missive was sent after Kohli went about meeting party workers in all districts of the Capital.
Kohli has asked MCD councillors to brush up their image. Both workers and public expect good behaviour from MCD councillors. They should increase their interaction with our units, Kohli says in the letter. The BJP has also reportedly told the MCD to dish out sops before the elections.
Launching a tirade against the atmosphere of allegations and counter-allegations in the party,Kohli has asked office-bearers to involve workers not holding any posts. He has said that indiscipline will not be tolerated.
Unfortunately most of the workers who are registered on paper just dont exist. Delhi BJP at present is going through a Satyam phase where on paper we look healthy,but in reality we have nobody at all, a senior leader of the BJP said.
Even though the list of party candidates for the Lok Sabha elections is not out,the city is plastered with posters. Admonishing workers on this,the letter says,We noticed that several leaders plaster the city with posters promoting themselves,this practice should be stopped. The BJP is expected to come out with the list of seven candidates for Delhi by February 26.
Learning a lesson from the negative campaign during the Assembly elections,Kohli has also asked workers to publicise what the BJP will do.
