What does Congress have? We have Narendra Modi and God-like party workers: Chouhan

BJP working committee resolves to work for record majority win in MP

BJP Madhya Pradesh committee meeting

Attempting to come out of the shadow of a stunning defeat in Karnataka, the Madhya Pradesh unit of Bharatiya Janata Party displayed a determined and confident mood on Monday. At the end of a daylong strategy meeting of an extended state working committee in Bhopal, the party unit resolved to architect a ‘historic and record majority win’ in the state assembly election slated for November this year.

Addressing the concluding session, chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said, “I can say with full confidence that Madhya Pradesh is Madhya Pradesh and we will magnificently create a new history, a new record of victory here. What do they (Congress) have? We have (prime minister) Narendra Modi ji, we have God-like party workers. Whether baked in the heat of experience or full of young enthusiasm, these workers work hard day and night and with the blessing of (ex-president) Kushabhau Thakre, we are lucky to have them in MP,” Chouhan said.

The CM also hinted at the path the BJP government may tread in the state ahead of the polls as he said that those even thinking of anti-national activities will not be spared. He said that elements like PFI and other anti-national forces have started showing colours in the state, but the state government has cracked down on them severely.

Chouhan called upon the MLAs to prepare work plans for the upcoming months, on the line of the BJP MPs submitting work plans to the PM.

Mega campaign from May 30 to June 30

At the end of the meeting, state BJP president Vishnu Dutt Sharma gave an outline of the proceedings, saying that all the workers have enthusiastically decided to go for ‘Abki baar 200 paar; Mr Bantadhaar se aar paar’ (winning more than 200 seats in assembly polls and taking upon Congress leaders like Digvijaya Singh). 

He said that each worker in all the 64,000 polling booths of the state will expose the disastrous tenure of Singh before 2003 and the 15-month tenure of Kamal Nath, who worked as ‘commision-nath’ and turned the secretariat into a haven of commission taking and money minting.

Sharma informed that a mega contact campaign will be conducted from May 30 to June 30 to mark the completion of nine years of BJP government led by PM Modi at the Centre, wherein the workers will visit each village and each home, taking across the message of the golden period of Modi’s rule in centre and Chouhan’s rule in the state vis-a-vis the bad situation during Congress rule.

“Extensive discussions were held and a broad strategy was drawn for ensuring the win of the BJP in state and centre in the presence of senior leaders. We have resolved that all the party workers will work in a unified manner, with team spirit, and craft a historic win for the party in the 2003 polls,” Sharma said.

He informed that BJP national general secretary Tarun Chug who is in-charge of the mega contact campaign on completion of nine years of Modi government, gave details of the programme. Other leaders who spoke on the occasion included Union Minister Narendra Tomar, National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, State General Secretary (organization) Hitanand, Chairman of the BJP national SC Morcha Lal Singh Arya, Union Minister Faggan Singh Kulaste, former minister Satyanarayan Jatia, regional general secretary (organization) Ajay Jamwal, state BJP in-charge P. Murlidhar Rao and other senior leaders were present.

The extended working committee has 1,168 members including union ministers, national office-bearers, MPs, all MLAs, chairpersons of the national morchas of the party, state presidents and general secretaries of such fronts, conveners, district in-charges, district presidents, mayors and elected representatives of local bodies, in-charges of assembly constituencies and other office-bearers.
