Come Sunday and Delhi BJP leaders and members alike would be thronging the Civic Centre’s auditorium. Party national president Amit Shah is scheduled to address the Delhi unit that has gone into hibernation after the drubbing in the recent Assembly polls.

While the spotlight would be on assessing the groundwork done by party office-bearers on ‘Mahajansampark Abhiyaan’, many believe Shah would ask the Delhi unit to step up its efforts to be among the people. Taking a cue from the low-profile campaigning by the AAP, the BJP has decided to focus on “jansampark abhiyaan”.


According to sources, the party doesn’t want to take any chances during the forthcoming civic body polls in Delhi. “It is likely that the party will majorly prune the list of sitting councillors while deciding candidates for the polls,” a BJP leader said.

Sunday’s meeting will be attended by all post-holders of the Delhi BJP unit, MPs, sitting MLAs and district presidents. It would be the first-of-its-kind meeting with Shah since the defeat of the BJP in the Assembly polls. The meeting will begin at 11 am and continue till 5 pm. The BJP president is unlikely to discuss the reasons for the party’s defeat in the capital, instead he is expected to chart the future course of action for the Delhi unit.
