Before the Assembly polls commence in Maharashtra, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to kick-start its MahaJanadesh Yatra from August 1 to pull out to voters all over the state. The Yatra will begin from GurukunjMozari in the Amravati district.
Launch of the DeenadayalAntyodaya Yojana last week from Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to register around 70 lakh new beneficiaries, this progressive move made the party take this decision.
Out of these, 40 lakh beneficiaries would be new LPG connection holders whereas around 33 lakh beneficiaries are assumed to be new ration cardholders beneath the scheme for food security, said government officials who have been assigned the targets to be accomplished in a month, just before Independence Day.
Fadnavis has said that the party’s thrust for acquiring assembly polls would be on approximately the 2 crore beneficiaries of several government schemes. Madhav Bhandari State party spokesperson, all though, maintained that the ‘Antyodaya’ had been part of the party’s beliefs considering its commencement and the drive shouldn’t be associated with the electoral politics.
He published the initial two phases of MahaJanadesh Yatra from August 1 to 9 and from August 17 to 31 August that shall cover Vidarbha, Marathwada and North Maharashtra. Throughout these 25 days, 104 public rallies, 228 SwagatSabhas and 20 press conferences are assumed to be organized.
JP Nadda the BJP national working president held marathon meetings with party’s district presidents, MLAs, MPs and with the election committee of the state BJP over Saturday and Sunday. While at the party’s special working committee meeting on Sunday, which was attended by about 10,000 party office bearers from all the 385 blocks over the state, he urged them to work for the supremacy without troubling about the alliance.
