To mobilise party cadre ahead of the 2022 Assembly election in Uttarakhand, BJP national president J P Nadda on Monday directed ministers of the Trivendra Singh Rawat government to tour the districts in the next 20 days, talk to people about the government’s performance and get their feedback.
The ministers will be accompanied by BJP state organisation members during the tours and they will present their reports to the party state core committee that will meet on December 26.
The committee, which has members from the government as well as the organisation, will send to Nadda a report on the tours and a roadmap for programmes to be held till September 2021 to publicise the government’s welfare schemes.
In Uttarakhand, the government has appointed ministers as in-charge for all 13 districts to monitor and review execution of government programmes and schemes there.
Giving details of meetings on Monday, state party chief Bansi Dhar Bhagat said all the ministers will have to tour the districts and tell people about the performance of the state government and the works it has done. Bhagat said ministers will stay the night in districts and dine at the residence of party workers.
Bhagat said ministers and party organisation leaders will jointly present the performance of the government before the public. They will also show a video on the works of the government. Ministers will also have to take feedback of the people and booth-level workers on works of the government. In the December 26 meeting, the ministers’ field visit reports will be reviewed.
On the significance of meetings held by Nadda in the past four days, Bhagat said, “Party national president has given valuable tips. Party workers have got a new energy and enthusiasm which will act as a sanjeevani ahead of the 2022 elections.”
Asked about the BJP president’s meeting on Sunday with RSS leaders who suggested that BJP will win the elections only if it takes workers along, Bhagat said, “No MLA, MP or office-bearer is upset. This is a general opinion that all have to work together. I also say that we have to work together. But that does not mean that we are not working together.”
Bhagat said that there is coordination between the government and the BJP organisation.
Two days earlier, Nadda asked party leaders, who have been nominated in the boards and corporations of the government and given minister rank, to tour the entire state in the next three months and develop a dialogue with party workers.
On the last day of his Uttarakhand tour on Monday, Nadda held a meeting with state cabinet ministers and the state BJP core committee.
The next stop on Nadda’s 120-day nationwide political tour, which started from Haridwar, will be West Bengal. Nadda will be on a two-day tour of Bengal from December 9 to hold meetings of organisational units of the party.
