During the buildup to the 2014 Lok Sabha campaign, the BJP had launched an ambitious mission 272 plus campaign, which enabled various interested citizens to volunteer towards helping the party secure the magical 272 mark in the Lok Sabha elections. This initiative turned out to be a resounding success, considering BJP ended up winning 282 seats that year.
Now a popular Twitter user named Vijay (@centerofright), having over 73,000 followers, has decided to take things to the next level by launching a volunteer program to help BJP achieve 360+ seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls:

To launch this program, Vijay has created a website named mission360.plus, where interested volunteers can sign-up and contribute to the 2019 campaign. In the “about” section, this 360+ initiative is described as:
#Mission360+ is a volunteer driven effort to bring supporters of BJP and Narendra Modi to achieve the goal of 360 Plus seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections
An article accompanying the volunteer sign-up form acknowledges that many supporters wanted to contribute their time and effort for the 2019 election campaign. It asserted how in 2014, thanks to everyone coming together, a Narendra Modi led BJP government came to power after defeating the Congress which was in power for a decade.
It claims that the 2019 campaign is being initiated to ensure that the Modi government’s good work is continued and that the Congress is prevented from returning to power, “directly or indirectly”.
In order for someone to sign-up interested users can scroll down to the end of the aforementioned article and fill this simple form:
As seen above, one needs to provide his/her name, email, preferred volunteering modes, list of interests and twitter ID, after which they are good to go. Instead of filling the form, one can also drop a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This initiative is a purely volunteer driven initiative and further details regarding the mission would be conveyed once a good number of volunteers sign-up.
Such an initiative right at the start of 2018 might signify that online supporters of the BJP have sounded the bugle for 2019 Lok Sabha poll,s and the activity might further intensify in the coming days.
