The Central government has completed four years in power and the BJP has already launched a full-fledged campaign for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In its efforts to let the people know of the government's achievements, the BJP will launch a fortnight-long programme. In a 15-day-long exercise, BJP leaders led by president Amit Shah will reach out to one lakh personalities from different walks of life.
The programme will start on May 27, in which all ministers -- both from the Centre and BJP-ruled states, MPs, MLAs, mayors and all other office-bearers of the party will reach out to personalities or experts or influential people across the country.
It will also include a special contact drive in SC and ST localities and also with senior citizens, he said. "As part of the programme, each BJP leader will interact with at least 25 renowned people from various fields such as retired judges of the Supreme Court and high courts, retired bureaucrats, retired army personnel, sports stars, writers among others and will inform them about the achievements of the Modi government in last four years," BJP general secretary Arun Singh said in a letter.
Besides, the leaders have been asked by the party to meet at least 50 polling booth workers of the BJP and brief them about the Modi government's works.
