BJP leaders met top RSS pracharaks in Coimbatore recently. The two discussed a range of areas where the organisation needs to focus.
With talks of the Opposition planning to form a Grand Alliance to take on Narendra Modi in 2019, the BJP has asked the RSS to draw a new strategy to tackle this challenge.
Four key BJP leaders–party’s national general secretary (organisation) Ram Lal, joint general secretaries Shivprakash Singh, Saudan Singh and V Satish–attended the recently concluded meet of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.
Sources suggest that at a meeting the BJP leaders asked RSS to chalk out a new strategy with focus on areas where the party organisation is weak.
According to sources, the BJP identified states like Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Odisha, West Bengal and some in the Northeast where the party organisation is weak with presence largely in urban areas.
With Opposition considering a Grand Alliance to counter Narendra Modi in 2019 Lok Sabha election, the BJP leaders shared some data with the RSS stressing on the need for the organisation to work towards ensuring political gains in states where it is not in driver’s seat.
According to the BJP, the party’s vote share in Uttar Pradesh was 42 per cent while a combined Opposition’s vote share was 55 per cent.
If sources are to be believed, the BJP has asked the RSS to reach out to Dalits and tribals and bring them within the organisation’s fold.
