New Delhi: BJP on Monday launched a blitzkrieg ahead of Delhi Assembly elections holding around 90 public meetings across the city.
Among the Union Ministers who addressed the meetings were Maneka Gandhi, Najma Heptullah, Kalraj Mishra and Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti whose hate speech a week ago at a party rally had triggered a storm.
Besides the Ministers, scores of party MPs and Delhi BJP leaders addressed the meetings.
This is for the first time BJP has organised such a large number of public meetings across the city on a single-day which were aimed at galvanising the party at the grass-root level.
BJP president Amit Shah had last month, in a brain-storming session, directed the party's Delhi unit to involve around 300 party MPs in campaigning for the upcoming assembly polls in the city.
In their addresses, the Union Minister and MPs today largely confined themselves on issues relating to water, electricity and development.
"It was a massive exercise. We are now fully geared up for the election. More rallies and street corner meetings will be held in the coming days," said a senior leader of the party.
In her address at a rally in Trilokpuri area, Jyoti refrained from making any controversial comments and restricted herself to attacking Aam Aadmi Party and Congress.
Jyoti had stoked a controversy by allegedly asking voters to elect sons of Lord Ram and not "illegitimate sons" at a BJP rally in Dwarka on Monday last, leaving the party and the government embarrassed.
