Article 370 boost to Delhi BJP
By India Today 15-Aug-2019
Meanwhile, the BJP has also moved the limit of its membership campaign deadline to August 20, which means that there are going to be fresh enrolments, and also more people joining the Narendra Modi-led party. Jai Prakash, vice-president of Delhi BJP unit, said, "BJP's membership drive in the national capital is increasing its target every day. We have got 14.5 lakh new members so far, mostly youths."
Responding to the question of how much the membership campaign has changed after the scrapping of Article 370, Jai Prakash said, "Countrymen are happy with the decision on Kashmir. We do not want to link our Kashmir decision of 'Akhand Bharat' with the membership drive, but after this decision, the figure for new joiners have almost doubled on a daily basis."
Kuljeet Singh Chahal, in-charge of the membership campaign in Delhi, said, "The BJP started its membership campaign in all the divisional blocks and at the booth level of Delhi on July 7, 2019. We had given each worker the goal of making new members in which we have got much more success than we expected."
Co-convenor of the membership drive, Harshdeep Malhotra, said, "The number of youngsters joining the BJP in Delhi clearly shows that the party will have a majority in the upcoming Assembly elections. We will have a lead and get an advantage in the Assembly elections."
Malhotra said that the "people of Delhi are happy with the removal of Article 370 and Article 35A and directly supporting the saffron party." "We received around 25 lakh missed call for the BJP membership drive in Delhi. After the verification process we found out around 14 lakhs are genuine," Malhotra was quoted as saying.
In a grand event at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on July 7, the BJP started its membership campaign in the national capital where National Membership Convenor Shivraj Singh was also present at the event.
