Ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP has set up an outreach session with the representatives of minority communities to solicit suggestions for the party manifesto, reports The New Indian Express.

Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi along with other senior BJP leaders would be reportedly exploring an agenda for the minorities.

According to the report, the ruling party at the Centre has decided to talk to the representatives from six communities including Christians, Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs, Parsis and Muslims.

“We have already held consultations with cross-sections of society as part of the campaign for wider participation before the party finalises its all-inclusive Sankalp Patra (manifesto),” TNIE quoted a senior BJP functionary as saying.

“ BJP has already held a number of discussions with influential Christian leaders especially in Kerala and hopes to see better results in the upcoming polls,” said the senior leader.
