Poll rush: MP BJP holds meetings with district units

BHOPAL: With assembly elections around the corner, the BJP in Madhya Pradesh is in election mode with organisational general secretary Ramlal holding marathon meetings with the district units.
Ramlal, who arrived in the state capital early on Wednesday morning, met state president Rakesh Singh, election management committee convener Narendra Singh Tomar and chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to chalk out the poll agenda, said sources in BJP.
The meeting, which lasted for almost six hours, began with one-on-one discussions with the BJP members from Bhopal and Narmadapuram divisions, comprising eight districts. Party leaders said that Ramlal’s visit is part of an organisational outreach programme to cover all the ten divisions in the state.
“Ramlal reached here for a day’s visit and discussed party plans with district and state unit leaders. He also held meetings with prominent leaders of the state to give thrust to the party’s poll campaign”, said an official BJP communique.
The party leaders though, refused to divulge details on the poll strategy and ticket distribution. Sources in the party said BJP is more concerned strengthening their influence in the ‘weak’ constituencies, where poll results could turn the table in favour of rival political parties
