JP Nadda's List Of Tasks For Uttarakhand BJP: Improve Communication With Party Workers And Public, Strengthen Coordination Through Night Stay In Districts, Feedback In 20 Days
The party would be aiming for 60 out of 70 seats in the state in the next Assembly elections — a task that understandably depends on the work and coordination in the organisational structure across levels.
Bharatiya Janata Party national president JP Nadda began his 120-day national tour across India from Uttarakhand last week.
On a tour to strengthen the party organisation and induce confidence in workers across several districts, Nadda met party workers, social media volunteers and senior party leaders of the state in Dehradun.
Nadda's tour is an important event for the party, as the communication and interaction from the party president is focussed on the bottom rung of workers who work on ground and the booth level. Uttarakhand is heading to Assembly polls in 2022.
The BJP is currently in power the state and would want to repeat its 2017 performance.
Nadda's attention to the last unit of the organisation is the biggest highlight.
It has given the local leaders at the lowest rung a chance to reestablish their own importance in the organisation.
The party would be aiming for 60 out of 70 seats in the state — a task that understandably depends on the work and coordination in the organisational structure across levels.
He has instructed the leaders in charge to ensure stay in different districts through coordination with the local leaders and workers at the mandal and booth in those districts.
He has directed them to ensure overnight stay in the districts and a meal with the party workers at any party worker's home. The night stay in districts has been previously announced by CM Rawat himself, and he has been inspecting work done in the Vidhan Sabhas in the different districts during his own visits.
He has said that all ministers must communicate with the public on sets of five policies and programmes of the state government to ensure that the word on the state government's work reaches all sections of the public.
Nadda also took account of the work done by the ministers in the Trivendra Singh Rawat-led government.
Nadda shared the feedback from the party workers with the ministers. This is likely to see a chain of actions on the district level between the party leaders and the local administration towards solutions to existing problems in districts.
Nadda was given a warm welcome in Dehradun, where he reached after halting in Haridwar — the venue for the 2021 Kumbh mela. In Haridwar, he offered prayers at the Kali Mandir.
Nadda directed the ministers to work in coordination with the party workers in the state and said that he will seek feedback in 20 days. The party core group will meet on 26 December and the feedback will be discussed and a report will be sent to Nadda.
For better dissemination of information on the people-centric policies and programmes of the state government, Nadda directed a senior minister to use the medium of videos for communication on these with the public.
This, he has said, will help the workers on ground in their communication with the public.
Among the actions towards people-centric moves of the centre-state team, the Jandhan Yojana, PM Narendra Modi's work on Covid, work on improving health facilities and infrastructure in the state, the all-weather road, the Yognagri Rishikesh-Karnprayag railway track, actions towards Atmanirbhar Bharat and Vocal for Local, will feature on top.
