Prayagraj: Gearing up for the 2022 assembly polls in the state, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership has set the ball rolling and inducted 29,749 new members into the party’s fold in Sangam city under its membership drive. The party Mahanagar unit leadership aims to induct at least one lakh more members under the drive in the city till November 30. The membership drive was launched by the state party leadership on October 29.
Party’s Mahanagar spokesperson, Rajesh Kesarwani told TOI, “As many as 29,749 new members have been inducted into the party’s fold between October 29 and November 15 including 10,235 from various morchas and 4005 from different cells (prakostha). He further added that the party has set a target to induct at least another one lakh members into its fold by November 30.
Kesarwani further claimed that party workers and leaders would be knocking on the doors of city residents between November 20 and 30 to induct new members into the party fold. It will be a door-to-door membership drive, he added. Senior BJP leader and state co-convener (media) Ashish Gupta told TOI that the party has launched a special membership drive in the state with a target to add at least 1.5 crore, new members, to its existing 2.5 crore party workers.
He added that a special membership drive was planned for the state to develop a new chunk of voters for the party, particularly youngsters from all sections of society. He, however, said that people of all age groups are eager to join the BJP and the number of new members is increasing with every passing day. To induct new members into the party’s fold across the district, special camps were being organised including for people from the slums. Not just men, but a large number of women have also taken the membership of the party, said Gupta.
A senior party leader, meanwhile, said that the last membership drive was held in 2020 across the state and after that, the party had a total of 2.5 crore members in UP. While holding a meeting with district presidents, Mandal presidents and Panna pramukh of the Kashi region recently, the state party leadership had claimed to have set a new target to add another 1.5 crore members. Senior party leaders are hoping to cross the mark of four crore members before the 2022 state assembly elections.
Party leaders said that a door-to-door campaign will be run to reach out to the masses with an appeal to join the BJP between November 20-30. Currently, BJP leaders from the various outfits and morchas of the BJP were holding membership camps to reach out to people and ask them to give a missed call on a particular number from their mobile phones to become a BJP member.
“With this membership campaign, we will be again contacting our old members, update their details and add new members as well as first-time voters, and people from all walks of life,” said Gupta. “We have alsochalked out a special strategy to make new members on those booths where the BJP has performed poorly in the past elections,” he added.
