On his first visit to UP, the new in-charge of state BJP unit Om Prakash Mathur on Thursday directed party workers to make 1.5 crore members in the state and communicate the achievements of Narendra Modi government to the ground level to create base for formation of a BJP-led government in the state after 2017 Assembly polls.
Mathur also launched the digital membership campaign that will conclude on December 31 and will be followed by off-line membership which will continue till March 31.
Mathur said people from all sections of the society were expressing willingness to join BJP after formation of Modi-led government in the Centre. Mathur also said that all the new members will be given responsibility in the party ahead of Assembly polls.
National in-charge of membership campaign and Lucknow mayor Dinesh Sharma said the PM had started the membership campaign on November 1 and so far over 55 lakh people have joined the party. He also said party membership taken on-line will be free of cost.
Party national joint secretary (organisation) Shiv Prakash said that PM has set a target to make at least 100 primary members at every booth and these members will hold responsibility of booth management during the polls.
Party state general secretary (organisation) Sunil Bansal said any person who will make at least 100 members join the party, will be called ‘active member’. Bansal said the target will be to make minimum 30,000 members in each Assembly segment of the state. Bansal also said that workshops would be organised at regional levels about the membership campaign.
Responding to queries of media persons after launching the digital membership campaign, Mathur said that he will convince all those leaders who are staying away from the party activities as they were not happy with party for some or other reasons. Mathur said that giving responsibility to every worker will be his formula to win Assembly elections in the state.
