BJP’s preparation for 2024 begins! Jan Ashirwad Yatra will pass through 150 regions of 19 states
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi could not give information about his new cabinet in the monsoon session of Parliament. There was a lot of uproar by the opposition parties. Now the party has decided that during the three-day Jan Ashirwaad Yatra, all the ministers will be presented to the public. It is believed that this journey of BJP will start from August 16 and will pass through 19 states. According to the information received by News18, all 43 ministers will descend about 300-400 km from their constituency and will travel in an open vehicle to their home district, passing through three to four Lok Sabha constituencies in the next three days. The BJP plans to cover around 150 Lok Sabha constituencies and over 15,000 km, so that the electoral states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Manipur can also be picked up within the party.
For example, Energy Minister RK Singh will land in Gaya for Arrah constituency while Labor Minister Bhupendra Yadav will land in Rajasthan to go towards Alwar. The ministers will stay overnight in enroute villages or small towns and meet different sections of people during the three-day yatra. His programs include meeting prominent religious saints, social workers, national and state-level sportspersons, families of martyrs, party cadres and visiting religious places.
All BJP MPs have also been asked to remain in their constituencies from August 16. A party leader said that ‘Before Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, history has been that Union Ministers used to be like fruits on a tree branch…. Far away from the reach of the public. PM Modi wants to break this myth. He wants that every minister of his council should be connected with the public and the public should also feel connected with the ministers.
A senior party leader said that many OBCs and backward castes and regions have got representation in the council of ministers for the first time and it is necessary to send a message among the people that one of their people has got a place here. In Parliament, PM Modi had criticized the opposition and its mentality, saying that they were not allowed to introduce women, Dalits and Scheduled Tribes MPs after they became ministers. The PM said that when he was trying to introduce new Union ministers belonging to the rural backgrounds, some members of the opposition party showed that they were not happy.
