Proper strategy and planning: BJP paying attention to only one thing in all constituencies


NEW DELHI: The BJP's Central Election Committee meeting to approve the first list of candidates for the Lok Sabha elections was completed at the party headquarters in Delhi the other day. The party is likely to announce its candidates today. This time, the BJP has devised a different strategy to select its candidates.

Sources close to the BJP say that this time, the BJP has devised a multi-layered and comprehensive process that includes public opinion, special assessments and high-level strategic discussions to select its candidates. It is reported that an agreement was reached on the candidates for all 543 Lok Sabha constituencies in the meeting attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and party president JP Nadda last night.

New strategy to find candidates
The party has collected opinions from the grassroots level for candidate selection. The party sought the help of the NaMo app for this. In this way, the party has sought people's opinions on the performance of the MP of their constituency. By collecting such inputs from the grassroots level, the party is aiming to ensure that candidates resonate with the sentiments and aspirations of the local population.

Over the past two years, the BJP has evaluated the performance of its MPs, sought their feedback and addressed concerns. The party has also approached several survey agencies to get a comprehensive picture of each constituency. Moreover, the party tasked ministers to visit each constituency and get opinions about the current MPs. The comprehensive information thus obtained will be discussed in the state-level election committee. The party will then enter the final phase of candidate selection by considering these matters as well. The decision on the candidates will be made only after the senior leaders in charge of each state hold a meeting with party president JP Nadda, Home Minister Amit Shah and general secretary BL Santosh.

Lost seats

The meeting that was held the other day ended at 11 pm. The main proposal put forward by the party leadership is to win back the seats it lost in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls or improve its standing. Several Union Ministers, including Bhupendar Yadav, Dharmendra Pradhan and Mansukh Mandaviya, are expected to be named candidates for the general elections.
