NEW DELHI:Even at a time when the BJP is facing political test in terms of fresh controversies, the party is focusing on fortifying its organisational base.
BJP chief Amit Shah on Wednesday inaugurated the trainers’ workshop that would train over 15 lakh new members of the party. After this camp, Shah would hold day-long meetings on July 3 with party office-bearers to review party functioning, strategy, work done in the past and future programmes. The BJP chief will later hold separate meetings with party general secretaries, state incharges and finally with all office-bearers.
He will also embark on a seven-city tour to review the progress of Maha Sampark Abhiyan (mass contact programme with new members). Starting with Bengaluru on July 5, Shah will then travel to Kolkata on July 7, Mumbai on July 9, Delhi on July 11, Kanpur on July 12, Jabalpur on July 13 and finally Guwahati on July 14.
Meanwhile, inaugurating the camp on Wednesday, Shah said the aim of enrolling 11 crore new members was not just to create a machinery for winning elections, but also to create a group of dedicated party members.
Held as part of the national training programme, the two-day workshop is being attended by 352 BJP leaders and will help the party to create dedicated workers and put in place trainers for improved communication within.
