Delhi BJP Co-in charge Tarun Chugh said that a crucial meeting was convened on Thursday for preparations for the National Conference on the 11th and 12th of the Ramlila Maidan. Chugh said that 24 departments have been set up for preparations for the National Convention, whose responsibilities have been assigned to different workers. All the workers have been given responsibilities to arrange for the representatives from all the districts across the country to come from the airport, railway stations and to the convention organized at Ramlila Maidan.
As per the party sources, the theme of the event would be to illuminate party leaders and karyakartas on campaign messaging. A senior general secretary claimed that the cadres were low on morale after the recent assembly elections defeat but after the Modi government passed the legislation of 10% reservation for economically weaker sections of the society, there has been a renewed vigour and optimism among the workers.
The platform of the convention will also be used to highlight Modi government’s commitment towards inclusiveness by drawing attention to granting constitutional status to the OBC Commission and strengthening the law on atrocities against Dalits and tribals.
