BJP President Amit Shah flags off the ‘Rath Yatra’ to collect feedback from across the nation to compile manifesto

The BJP on Sunday kicked off a pair of programmes geared towards the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, with party president Amit Shah initiating 'Bharat Ke Mann Ki Baat - Modi Ke Saath' and the 'Sankalp Patra' initiative.

On Sunday, BJP National President Amit Shah sounded the poll bugle with the announcement of the new campaign theme of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for 2019 general elections “Kaam kare jo, umeed usi se ho (Whoever works for the people must have their trust)”. He even flagged off the ‘Rath Yatra’ through which mobile vans will collect feedback across the country which will then be incorporated in the BJP manifesto.

Addressing the party workers at the Sankalp Patra launch in Delhi for “Bharat Ke Mann Ki Baat”, BJP president Amit Shah said that prior to 2014, nearly 10 crore families had doubted the abilities of the multi-party coalition governments which had ruled for more than 30 years and voted BJP and Narendra Modi to form a stable government. He further added that populist policies were announced by the then governments only to win elections which impacted the financial discipline of the country.

Amit Shah said that governments are formed not just for five years but formed for continuity to assure that development happens. The multi-party governments that ran for years took the country 30 years back, said Shah. Instead of focusing on the developmental policies, the coalition governments spent time on saving the coalition government, said while attacking the multi-party coalition governments.

He also said that the BJP has internal democracy and that there was a huge difference between the BJP and the rest of the parties. “The elections don’t exist just to win. For BJP workers, these elections are a celebration of democracy-an opportunity to reach out to the people and present their views as a direction for the country,” Amit Shah said.

The BJP president added that the party’s manifesto will be compiled after consultations with various stakeholders including state BJP units and supporters. The BJP’s manifesto to be known as ‘Sankalp Patra’, will be formed by the committee headed by Rajnath Singh. Shah further said that BJP will aim to reach out to nearly 10 crore families through various means to compile the manifesto. Every state unit will have a team comprising of 20 members to compile the suggestion given by the people, which will be then incorporated by a 30-member national team to the party’s manifesto.

“There will be 300 mobile vans running across the country to collect these suggestions. Addition to that, there will also be physical kiosks to collect the public opinion.  The party supporters and the public can also solicit their opinion through social media platforms, phone calls, WhatsApp, letter etc. which will be then compiled into the party’s final manifesto,” said Amit Shah.

“We will contest the 2019 polls under the leadership of Narendra Modi. ‘Bharat Ke Mann Ki Baat’ is not a programme of the BJP, it is a programme of the people of India, ” said the BJP president.

Shah also said that more than 11 crore BJP workers will reach out to 10 crore households in the next one month to ask for their opinions regarding their idea of New India and their expectations from Narendra Modi.
