Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP President Amit Shah want to paint Delhi in saffron colours in the upcoming MCD elections. The hectic preparations are underway and BJP leaders and functionaries are making sure that the message reaches to voters in the national capital. BJP is gearing up for a high- octave campaigning even as it has emphasized on the colours to shine bright. The party is leaving no stone unturned to gain maximum out of 272 wards. The Elections to north, east and south municipal corporations will be held on April 23. PM Modi has himself directed the party leaders to make sure that cadre wear helmets painted in saffron, according to The Indian Express report.
“The PM has specifically instructed that no law should be breached while campaigning. We cannot be seen as violating traffic rules while campaigning. There should be no photographs showing BJP leaders riding without helmets. It does not send out the right message. So, all senior leaders in-charge of the groups have been briefed about the plan,” according to the report. “While on one hand, we will ensure that no violations occur, on the other hand, the helmets will do the campaigning trick. When campaigners are wearing saffron helmets and their bikes, partially painted in the same colour, hit the roads, it will attract support from people. It is not a show of strength but a show of confidence in people,” a senior party leader said, according to the report.
It has been learned that the Delhi unit of BJP will launch its door-to-door campaign named ‘Ghar Ghar Dastak’ today. The meetings of the Parliamentary units of BJP were held yesterday to take stock of the preparations of the poll campaign.
