New Delhi: The Delhi BJP has asked its workers to focus on the 55 per cent votes, which were secured by the party candidates in the Lok Sabha polls, so that it can form a government after the Assembly polls in Delhi next year.

In the weekly review meeting held on Wednesday evening, Delhi BJP general secretary (organisation) Siddarthan told the workers to maintain connection with the electorate built during the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, in which the party got about 55 per cent votes in all the seven seats.

“Mr Siddarthan advised us to work hard to retain the 55 per cent vote share in the coming Delhi Assembly polls to be held early next year. He explained that by retaining the vote share polled in its favour, BJP will emerge victorious and form government in the national capital after 22 years,” said a senior party leader present in the meeting.

Mr Siddarthan also asked party leaders to focus on a positive campaign and talk about the good work of the Union government instead of reacting to Arvind Kejriwal’s government.

“He told us that instead of reacting to Mr Kejriwal’s misgovernance or non feasible populist announcements, we should focus on BJP’s work and tell people about our own agenda for development,” said another party leader present in the meeting.

Mr Siddarthan, along with Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari, discussed several ideas to be executed on ground before the Assembly polls. The party also stressed upon giving special attention to 12 reserved Assembly constituencies in the city and slum clusters.

A party office-bearer told this newspaper that Mr Tiwari’s flagship programme, ‘night stay’ at slum clusters, will be revamped and held regularly in all the 70 Assembly constituencies.

“Mr Tiwari, Mr Siddarthan, and other senior leaders will hold ‘night stay’ and outreach programme in all the 70 Assemblies and it will be held regularly as part of the voter outreach campaign,” he added. Mr Tiwari also asked the office bearers and workers to focus on work instead of frequenting the offices of senior leaders.
