Nagpur: To ensure the victory of party candidate Nitin Gadkari in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, BJP workers have hit the ground and already taken a lead in campaigning for the Nagpur LS constituency. The Nagpur BJP unit will be carrying out a comprehensive campaign to woo voters from the constituency.
There are a total of 4,024,197 voters, including 1,957,995 women, in the Nagpur Lok Sabha constituency, where voting will take place in a single phase on April 11. The Congress has fielded Nana Patole, a former BJP MP from Gondia, Bhandara, who joined the party last year, from Nagpur. The results of the Lok Sabha polls will be announced on May 23.
According to party sources, a massive team of 65,000 to 70,000 BJP workers and supporters has been assigned to every Assembly segment which falls under the LS constituency with 1,903 voting booths.
A party insider said that one “panna pramukh” has been deployed for each voters’ list. There are around 55,000 people working as “panna pramukhs” (page in-charge) in the constituency. The “panna pramukh” is the first point of contact for voters under the BJP's election management strategy. Besides, 10,000 to 20,000 BJP office-bearers and workers are part of other campaigning verticals.
A team of 50 workers will be actively working in each Vidhan Sabha constituency under the Nagpur Lok Sabha seat, which has six Assembly segments. The “cluster pramukhs” will look after campaigning on social media in Assembly constituencies and door-to-door campaigns.
BJP’s Nagpur spokesperson Chandan Goswami said that party workers have started a door-to-door campaign to reach out to the voters. The workers will apprise the voters about various welfare schemes launched by the BJP-led state and central governments, he said.
Details of the Nagpur metro project, the first phase of which became operational in early March, and the multi-modal international cargo hub and airport at Nagpur (MIHAN) will also be shared with the voters, he said.
