‘One vote, one note’ for BJP’s Modi for PM campaign across country

As part of the drive, BJP workers will collect funds under what the party calls a ‘one vote, one note’ programme.

‘We will run a Modi-for-PM campaign across the country, people can contribute from as low as Rs 10 to a maximum of Rs 1,000 towards this,’ BJP general secretary Ananth Kumar said.

Kumar said apart from contouring the party’s campaign around the appeal of Modi, it would also work at the booth level in a massive out-reach programme.

The party would enroll new voters by informing them about party’s ideology and pro-people policies under the banner of ‘Nai Sooch, Nai Ummid (New Thought, New Expectation)’.

Taking a cue from the success of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi assembly poll, to whom a large number of young voters gave their consent, BJP is leaving no stone unturned considering the coming Lok Sabha election.

BJP’s senior spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Prakash Javadekar, while interacting with the media, said, ‘In the party’s chief ministers’ conference our senior party leaders have discussed on securing 272 plus seats in the coming Lok Sabha election. We are confident to get the figure.’

He further said, ‘After our national council meeting on 28 January, the party leaders and supporters will devote themselves in campaigning and reaching every corner of the country to expose anti-people policies of the Congress party.’

‘We have separated 60 days for campaigning and the next 60 days in approaching people of India with our good governance policies and projecting Narendra Modi as our prime ministerial candidate,’ Javadekar added.

‘On 22 December, the party has launched a website in Mumbai to enroll new voters. ‘Already in the last three days we have received more than 2 lakh response. They will play a very significant role in garnering support for the victory of the party,’ Javadekar further said.

Yashwant Sinha describes UPA-2 rule as dark period of decision making

New Delhi: Describing the 5-year rule of UPA-2 as a ‘dark period’, former finance minister and senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha has said ‘lack of honesty and integrity’ has prevented government from taking decisions leading to delay in implementation of big ticket projects worth over Rs 17 lakh crore.

‘The pending projects have been accumulating because the government is paralysed, it has not taken decisions in the last five years, it was absolutely a dark period in which no decision was taken,’ Sinha said.

‘Sardar Patel was not anti-Muslim’

NEW DELHI: BJP leader LK Advani on Tuesday contested allegations that Sardar Patel was anti-Muslim and quoted Rafiq Zakaria, an Islamic scholar and Congress leader, who had done research on the ‘Iron Man’, to underline his nationalistic credentials.

In his blog, Advani expressed surprise at a ‘perverse’ article in a national magazine which quoted records to brand Patel as a man ‘rabidly communal in outlook’ and Jawaharlal Nehru as a symbol ‘of secular nationalism’.

The article said this was the reason Sangh Parivar ‘worships one and hates the other’, inviting strong rebuttal from the veteran BJP leader who presented Zakaria’s views, who is considered an authority on subjects related to Indian Muslims, to counter the charge. Quoting Zakaria’s book based on his lectures on ‘Sardar Patel and Indian Muslims’, Advani said the Congress leader too was under the impression that Patel did not like Muslims.
