NEW DELHI: The BJP decided to contest all seats in the upcoming Punjab polls and also mulled strategy for other poll-bound states at its national executive meet where Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasised on the need for connect with common people. Modi also sought to differentiate BJP from several of its political rivals emphasising that it was not centered around any one family.
Here are the key developments at the high-profile meet of the party that rules the Centre and many states:
Strategy for poll bound states: The party top brass received information about its preparedness in the upcoming polls in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur. Barring Punjab, the BJP rules all these states. While most BJP chief ministers attended the meet remotely, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath was present in the national capital for the event. Presentations were made by the chief ministers of these states. For Punjab, where the BJP is in opposition, state BJP chief Ashwani Sharma said that the party will contest all 117 Assembly seats in the poll scheduled early next year.
PM stresses on connect with the common people: In his speech at the event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the BJP is not a family-based party, it isn’t run by a family but by a culture of public welfare. He also mentioned the service done by party workers during the Covid-19 onslaught. Modi asked BJP workers to become a bridge of faith between the party and the common man. Modi expressed confidence that the party will win the people’s trust as it has been moving forward by taking up issues close to the people. Modi also spoke about a new initiative of Kamal Pushp launched on the Namo App for paying tributes to all party workers who devoted their entire life to the party.
Adityanath moves political resolution: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath moved the political resolution, comprising 18 important issues, in the BJP’s national executive meet. It was seconded by the party’s Tamil Nadu chief K. Annamalai. Talking to media after the meeting, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said the resolution was passed. The resolution condemned the opposition’s “opportunistic” politics and its attempts to create fear during the pandemic, according to agency reports.
On why Adityanath was chosen to move the resolution, she said: “Yogi Adityanath is a senior leader of the BJP. He is the chief minister of the country’s largest state, had served as Member of Parliament and done a stupendous job to help people during Coronavirus pandemic. So why should he not have been called to move a resolution?”
Sitharaman said Union Ministers G. Kishen Reddy, Anurag Thakur, and Ashwini Vaishnaw, and Chief Ministers Pramod Sawant (Goa), N. Biren Singh (Manipur), Pushkar Singh Dhami (Uttarakhand) and presented their views on the resolution.
Nadda refers to party growth in West Bengal: BJP president JP Nadda set targets to further strengthen the party’s organisation and asserted that its best is yet to come. On BJP’s growth in West Bengal, Pradhan quoting Nadda said if one looks at its growth in the state from the political science perspective, then there will be very few parallels of it in Indian political history. According to Pradhan, Nadda said that if one looks at the BJP’s vote share in the 2014 assembly elections and the 2016 assembly elections in West Bengal, and compares them with the 2019 Lok Sabha polls and 2021 assembly polls, it shows substantial growth of the BJP in the state.
Setting new organisation targets for the BJP’s expansion, Nadda said the party will constitute booth level committees at all 10.40 lakh polling stations by December 25 this year and have “panna committees”, in reference to each page of voters’ list by April 6.
Government performance during epidemic hailed: Briefing reporters, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said the executive hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s effective leadership during the Covid pandemic, 100 crore vaccinations and providing free food grains to 80 crore poor people. He said that Nadda noted that this is the largest food programme in human history.
Taliban and the CAA: Citing the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, Pradhan said the executive lauded Modi for his foresight of enacting the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, which aims at providing citizenship to minorities in some neighbouring countries, including Pakistan and Afghanistan, she said.
Steps for Sikh community: Addressing the party’s national executive, BJP chief Nadda also reached out to Sikhs, who are in majority in poll-bound Punjab, by listing a number of measures the Modi government has taken for the community, including expediting action against 1984 riots accused, facilitating foreign grants to gurudwaras and keeping langars outside the review of the Goods and Services Tax.
The BJP’s national executive meeting, which should be normally held once in three months according to the party’s constitution, is being held for the first time since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic last year.
The party’s national office-bearers, its national executive members from the national capital and Union ministers will be physically present in the meeting, while the chief ministers of states where the party is in power and national executive members from these states will virtually attend the meeting.
At the NDMC Convention Centre, the meeting venue, musicians from across the country played traditional instruments to greet those attending the meet. Prime Minister Modi while entering the venue met women, who in their traditional Chhath attire and singing songs praising the Sun god, performed puja and rituals.
