BJP receives a ‘thundering response’ from TMC-ruled West Bengal, adds 80 lakh new members surpassing target of 60 lakh

BJP' working president JP Nadda on Thursday claimed that the drive was "successful" and triumphantly noted that the ruling BJP now had more members than the population of most countries.

The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) has received an overwhelming response to the recently launched membership drive in West Bengal. The overall response was stunning as it surpassed the targets and expectation in Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s home turf.

BJP’s working president JP Nadda said that BJP received a “thundering response” from TMC-ruled West Bengal. “The target from Bengal was set at 60 lakh, however, the party has completed the process of inducting 80 lakh members till now, which is expected to go beyond 1 crore from Bengal itself,” he asserted.

Nadda said the party aims at enrolling one crore members in West Bengal. He added that the people of the state are disenchanted with the state government and they want to get rid of it. Nadda hit out at Banerjee’s mismanagement and autocracy in Bengal with his remarks.

Besides West Bengal, around six lakh people participated in BJP’s membership drive in Jammu and Kashmir. Nadda further added that in Gujarat all the voters from the state’s 14 booths have joined the ruling BJP.

BJP had launched a membership drive on July 6 which concluded on August 20. Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with Union Ministers Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari had launched the drive from Varanasi, Telangana, Jaipur and Nagpur respectively on July 6, the birth anniversary of Syama Prasad Mookerjee.

Nadda claimed on Thursday that this drive was “successful” and triumphantly noted that the ruling BJP had more members than the population of most countries.

During the membership drive, the party received more than 5.81 crore online applications, while around 62 lakh people applied for its membership on an offline basis.

The party aims to induct seven crore new members raising the total number of members in to 18 crores, which is less than the population of only eight nations in the world.
