BJP funds drive to reach every household

Patna, Jan. 15: The BJP would conduct a Modi-for-Prime Minister funds collection drive from February 11 to 18 in the state to reach out to each and every household in the 56,913 polling booths.

The party aims at collecting donation ranging from Rs 10 to Rs 1,000 from every house. The BJP national president, Rajnath Singh, today launched the drive in New Delhi, contributing Rs 1,000. The slogan of the campaign is “one note, one vote”.

BJP state president Mangal Pandey said: “The party cadre would reach out to each and every household in about 57,000 booths.”

The party also started its poll preparations today after the month-long kharmas (inauspicious month) ended yesterday. Former mayor of Muzaffarpur Municipal Corporation Samir Kumar joined the BJP with his supporters.

Pandey said the party would start a campaign to collect iron for a massive statue of Sardar Vallabbhai Patel in Gujarat from January 20. It would continue till January 25.

The BJP would also celebrate the 90th birth anniversary of Jan Nayak Karpoori Thakur in a grand way to make inroads in the backward/Dalit vote bank.
