The Madhya Pradesh unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party targets door-to-door campaign in all 64,523 booths in the state and has pressed 41 lakh party workers to distribute a letter from PM Narendra Modi and to put stickers on every house. 

Modi’s letter addressed to the state’s voters says that in the last 20 years, the state has come out of the 'BIMARU'. “Who can forget the time in 2003 when basic facilities like roads, electricity and water were lacking in the state. I have full confidence that in the upcoming Assembly election too, the people will once again extend their support to me and the BJP… always had a special connection with Madhya Pradesh due to which the people here have helped the BJP to register victory in 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections,” it said.

State party president Vishnudutt Sharma has asked party workers to highlight schemes like Ujjwala Yojana, Ayushman Bharat, the street vendor license and other similar programmes. “These are bringing big changes in the lives of people”, said Sharma. “Due to these schemes, 1.36 crore people have come above the poverty line in the state. Now 2.5 crore more people will come out of poverty. This is the strength of the Prime Minister's welfare schemes for the poor.”

This outreach programme has to be preceded by greeting people with ‘Ram Ram’. Selfies are also mandatory. The party is aiming to increase 370 votes in every booth in the state, thereby increase its vote share by 10 per cent in Madhya Pradesh.

Sharma said, “The PM’s welfare schemes for the poor are realising the goal of making MP self-reliant. These schemes are a guarantee of making MP a developed state. These welfare schemes are working to change and raise people’s standard of living”. 

Sharma also instructed party workers to talk about the failures of the Congress. “The party has a history of breaking the country, and even today, it is doing the same. Rahul Gandhi, in his last visit, had walked step by step with the members of the Tukde-Tukde gang who raised slogans of disintegrating the country. What right does the Congress party, which stands with the opponents of the country, have to talk about uniting India?”

He also labelled the Bharat Jodo Yatra ‘a white lie’. “He is dishonest and attempting to fool the public”, said Sharma.
