Aiming to improve its record in the 2024 general election, the BJP has planned dozens of Prime Minister Narendra Modi mega-rallies covering Lok Sabha’s 144 seats, most of which it lost in 2019 and where it is working on it has to improve their prospects. Sources said on Saturday the party had prepared a “cluster plan” to boost its standing in those seats.
In the first phase of the elaborate plan, several union ministers were asked to visit these seats and hold meetings with BJP workers and people from different walks of life. Last month, BJP President JP Nadda and Union Home Secretary Amit Shah held a review meeting with the various Union ministers to assess the progress of the party’s cluster plan.
“As part of Phase 2 of the plan, it is now planned to hold dozens of prime minister mega-rallies covering those 144 Lok Sabha seats to improve the party’s prospects for those seats in the next Lok Sabha polls.” , said a source.
These include key constituencies held by opposition parties such as Uttar Pradesh’s Rae Bareli (Sonia Gandhi, Congress) and Mainpuri (Mulayam Singh Yadav, SP); Maharashtra’s Baramati (Supriya Sule, NCP); Jadhavpur from West Bengal (Mimi Chakraborty, TMC); Mahabubnagar from Telangana (Srinivas Reddy, TRS) and Chhindwara from Madhya Pradesh (Nakul Nath, Congress).
The BJP leadership aims to win a majority of the 144 Lok Sabha seats. The party has also set up a committee to continuously monitor the progress of this public relations work in these seats. Most of those 144 constituencies include those the party lost in the 2019 polls, but some winning seats are also part of the list due to difficult demographic and regional factors, the sources said.
The BJP won 303 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
