BHUBANESWAR: The State BJP will intensify its booth level contact programme from July 21 to reach out people of 36,000 booths in Odisha by month-end. As many as 20,000 BJP cadres will be involved in the 'Mo Booth Sabuthu Majbhut' programme which is aimed at strengthening the party at the grassroots level.

It has been decided that party MLAs and MPs, former MLAs and MPs, State, district and mandal functionaries will visit at least nine booths and meet five families in each booth, said State BJP vice-president Samir Mohanty."The booth outreach programme will be similar to what national BJP president Amit Shah did during his three-day visit to the State in the first week of this month," Mohanty added.

Each booth will be managed by 20 workers whose responsibility will be to meet voters to collect as much information as possible on their socio-economic status and their opinion on the Modi Government. 
"Shah has called upon party workers to give at least one hour for the party every day for next 500 days. We will try our best to devote more time for the party," he said. 

In election management, booth is the smallest unit. Booth presidents will be in most powerful position. They are the ones who interact with people directly on daily basis and eventually, play a major role in garnering votes for party candidates, he added.
