NEW DELHI: AIMING to chalk out a strategy for the party’s outreach programme on the issues of Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and NRC, BJP chief Amit Shah held a meeting with party general secretaries on Wednesday.
Sources said that the purpose was to review how far the party had been able to counter the narrative on the contentious issues surrounding CAA and NRC. Sources said the party had given the responsibility to different leaders to conduct its nationwide outreach exercise.
Issues concerning BJP’s organisational elections and Delhi Assembly polls were also discussed at the meeting, they said. Apart from Shah, those present at the meeting included BJP working president J P Nadda, general secretary (organisation) B L Santosh and all other general secretaries.
Party insiders said the BJP has already started social media campaign on CAA-NRC-NPR. Several rallies by PM Narendra Modi and Shah are also being planned. Early this week, the PM launched ‘India supports CAA’ campaign on Twitter and NaMo app. Anil Jain has been given the charge to lead the outreach progreamme in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
