Sunday in the national capital was marked by mega roadshows of several high-profile BJP leaders who looked to cement the party’s support base ahead of the December 4 civic elections.
A clutch of 14 roadshows named ‘Mega Vijay Sankalp Road Show’ was led by BJP president JP Nadda. Several Union ministers and senior party leaders also held roadshows at different locations in all 14 districts of Delhi.
These roadshows were led by 14 senior leaders, including chief ministers of Himachal Pradesh, Assam, Uttarakhand, and neighbouring Haryana. Uttar Pradesh BJP president Bhupender Chaudhary also participated in a roadshow.
Union ministers Rajnath Singh, Meenakshi Lekhi, Jitender Singh, Hardeep Singh Puri, and Gajender Singh Shekhawat along with several MPs and Delhi BJP leaders took out roadshows and sought votes for party candidates.
After conducting a roadshow in South Delhi’s Sangam Vihar, president Nadda said that the people of the national capital have made up their minds to bring back BJP in the municipal corporation of Delhi.
“Today, seeing the enthusiasm and support of the people during the roadshow in Sangam Vihar, South Delhi, I am sure that the people’s unwavering faith and immense support for the BJP continues unabated. The people of Delhi have made up their mind to reject the false promises and bring back the corruption-free and good governance BJP,” he tweeted.
Union minister Rajnath Singh, who held a roadshow in Uttam Nagar, said: “The people of West Delhi’s Uttam Nagar area today showered their affection with great enthusiasm and energy during the ‘Vijay Sankalp Road Show’. People will make Lotus again bloom in the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections.”
Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, who sought votes in New Delhi’s Ghonda, said that people want an apology from Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for riots during the anti-CAA protests in February 2020.
“Kejriwal is known for drama. He thinks Hindus are enemies but should understand India cannot be without Hindus and they have the right to come back to India. Kejriwal should apologize to Hindus for riots that took place during anti-CAA protests,” he said.
Union minister Shekhawat said the BJP has served the people of Delhi and will make a comeback in the upcoming civic polls.
Talking about the success of the roadshows, BJP national vice president and Delhi unit in charge Baijayant Panda said that the huge support for these roadshows exhibits that people want to choose the party again over the fake promises of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
