BJP Plan | 2019 polls: BJP chalks out plans with Rajasthan and AP political leaders for 2019 polls


BJP chief Amit Shah held a strategy meeting with party leaders and office-bearers from Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. They discussed launch of various programmes for reaching out to voters in the two states.

The party has decided to take out yatras in both the states as part of its mass-contact programme. Strengthening the party at the grassroots through ‘panna pramukhs’, booth-level committees and door-to-door campaigns will also be undertaken.

Sources said though the issue of who should be made the next Rajasthan BJP chief was not part of the agenda on Wednesday, a lack of consensus on the matter between Shah and Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje is coming in the way of launching of a fullfledged campaign in the state. As the deadlock continues, some leaders maintained that Shah may zeroin on a name this week.

Union minister Gajendra Shekhawat is still the front-runner for the post despite Raje’s strong opposition. As a compromise, BJP may choose a Brahmin leader for the post. Both Shekhawat and Raje are from the Rajput community and this may not send a good message to other castes in the state, a party leader from Rajasthan said.

The meeting at the BJP headquarters here was attended by Raje, Shekhawat, Union ministers Arjun Meghwal and CR Chaudhary. Senior party leaders from Rajasthan, Om Mathur and Arun Chaturvedi, general secretary (organisation) Ram Lal and joint general secretary (organisation) V Satish were also present at the meeting.

BJP’s big loss in Alwar and Ajmer Lok Sabha bypolls were dismissed by the leadership, but sources said it has caused a flutter within the ranks. The saffron party is also concerned about unhappiness among some castes as they feel the Raje administration has neglected them. An attempt was made recently to reach out to the Meena community by inducting Kirodi Lal Meena into the party and giving him a Rajya Sabha seat.

The Andhra Pradesh unit was represented by state unit president K Lakshminarayan, his predecessor Haribabu, former Union minister D Purandeswari and Rajya Sabha MP GVL Narasimha Rao, among others.

A door-to-door programme called ‘Intintiki BJP (BJP to every home)’ will focus on propagating the benefits of the Centre’s welfare programme as well as on attacking TDP as an “opportunist party”. BJP will also try to capitalise on the anger and anti-incumbency against it.

The party is also planning to counter the TDP charge that the Centre did not cooperate in implementing the development programmes in the state post-bifurcation by educating people about the various funds given till now.

“Corruption in the TDP government and misappropriation of funds will also be an issue,” Narasimha Rao said, adding that BJP will be projected as the alternative to TDP and YSRCP.

Union ministers Nitin Gadkari, Piyush Goyal and Prakash Javadekar will visit the three zones in Andhra Pradesh to inform people about the Centre’s programmes.

The Centre had given funds under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana to Andhra Pradesh but this has been siphoned off by the state, BJP leaders charged. The party will also tell people that certain central schemes have been projected as welfare programmes of the state government.
