BJP’s unique voter outreach in Delhi, shows Delhi is more than just Punjabis and Purvanchalis

As the campaigning ends for the sixth phase of elections, adrenaline has started flowing for the 23rd May when India gets the leader it deserves.

With over a lakh South Indian voters who call the national capital their home, the BJP has come up with a unique voter outreach as the national capital gears up to vote on May 12. While the voter percentage of Purvanchalis is far greater than that of the South Indians, BJP has taken its campaign a step further to be all inclusive in voter outreach.

BJP Karnataka MLA Arvind Limbavali was made the election in-charge for the campaign of reaching out to Kannadigas in the national capital. “Since the Kannadigas are away from their native state we wanted them to know that as a party we would stand by them at any point of time. Kannadigas have always been the front runners in the nation’s progress. Hence it is important to make them feel included in our run to achieve new India,” Limbavali said.

Limbavali reached out to the people across the national capital and presented the agenda. “Since the core ideology of BJP is to be inclusive while moving towards development the party decided to address this while the other parties like Congress haven’t taken any initiatives nor JDS has its presence here,” he added.

Limbavali visited the Raghavendra Swamy Mutt in RK Puram area of Delhi and the Adichunchanagiri Shakha Mutt in Noida where he reached out to influential Kannadiga voters to gather support for PM Modi. There are about 15,000 Kannadigas in Delhi and about 4,000 in Gurugram. In spite of the fact that the voter base is not that significant in the city which has over 1.3 crore voters the BJP has reached out to the voters which show that for the BJP, Delhi is more than just the Purvanchalis and the Punjabis.

About 40 per cent of the population in West, North West, North East and South Delhi is from Purvanchal, which comprises of the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh and western part of Bihar. Aam Aadmi Party, in its desperation to garner some votes had resorted to fear-mongering where Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that the BJP has been driving the ‘purvanchalis’ out of Delhi as they have done in Mumbai. Similarly, Punjabis, too, form a significant voter base, comprising of over 35% of the voter base.

Even as Congress struggles to stay relevant in the political landscape, the Aam Aadmi Party has driven the political discourse to a new low with its shameful antics. From indulging in fear-mongering by obtaining phone numbers of Delhi residents and calling them to ‘inform’ them that their names have been removed from the voters list by the BJP on behest of Narendra Modi, to accusing opponents of publishing and distributing obscene and derogatory pamphlets about their own candidate, AAP has reached a new low in politics.

As the campaigning ends for the sixth phase of elections, adrenaline has started flowing for the 23rd May when India gets the leader it deserves.
