Enthusiasm among youth towards BJP on the rise in Uttarakhand
Uttarakahdn BJP Yuva Morcha president Saurabh Thapliyal on Monday said that youth are the main force behind the mass campaigning and road-show activities of all five contesting candidates of the BJP in the state.
‘Many villages are located in difficult terrains, where only dedicated teams of young blood can effortlessly reach and campaign for the party candidate. Nearly 40 percent of total voters of this hill state are youths and can play a decisive role in the electoral results from all five LS constituencies,’ Thapliyal added.
He further added that youth are inclined towards charismatic personality of Narendra Modi as it was evident from the fact that when he visited Dehradun on 15 December, nearly 70 percent of gathered public were youths at Parade Ground to hear his speech.
He added, ‘The craze among youth towards BJP is on rise. When BJP Yuva Morcha national president Anurag Thakur visited Devbhoomi on 13 January, he discussed many issues related to younger generation. He also asked us to intensify our signature campaign to catch the young in our team. We visited many villages, streets, corners across the state, and now nearly 1, 24,000 youth have become members of Yuva Morcha. This is a big achievement as it was done in a very short interval of time.’
Whether it’s door-to-door campaign, or use of social media to connect with people, the BJP is much ahead of the rival parties who are fielding their candidates for LS elections. The party has selected heavy-eight candidates from all seats, whose popularity, mass appeal, winning potential is matchless.
This is the reason why Congress has delayed the declaration of their candidates from all five seats, although we declared on 15 March.
The hill people are fed-up with the rampant corruption at all levels from the past ten years. Mismanagement in carrying out relief and rescue operations in disaster-hit regions had made angry hill villagers towards Congress government at state level. Besides this, growing unemployment, sky-rocketing prices of essential commodities, constant threat from neighbouring countries are the factors which make our youth desperate to throw UPA government from the centre.
He further told that ‘Ek Booth, Dus Youth’ is an innovative strategy of the party where four lakh youths or party volunteers will reach out to the voters and motivate them to bring in maximum numbers to the polling booths on 7 May.
