BJP President Amit Shah and senior party leader Rajnath Singh Sunday set up “Bharat kemannkibaat, Modi kesaath”, a month-long exercise to seek suggestions from 10 crore people across the country to help the party prepare its ‘sankalppatra’ (manifesto). Shah stated the exercise is aimed at democratizing the process of preparing manifesto and that this “unique experiment” will strengthen democracy.
“What kind of country people want and what is their suggestion to achieve this; this exercise will reach out to them to get their views,” Shah told reporters at an event here, adding that it will help the party realize the dream of a New India.
The party selected a waiter at the hotel, where the programme was held, to offer the first suggestion.
Over 300 vehicles will move all over the country and over 7,700 boxes will be carried across 4000 assemblies to seek people’s views, he said, adding social media and telephonic communication will also be used for this.
Singh, who is also the leading the party’s ‘sankalppatra’ committee, said never before such a massive exercise to prepare a party’s manifesto has been launched in a country.
The home minister also talks at length about pro-farmer measures taken by the government and said the prime minister has emerged as the biggest well-wisher of farmers.
