MCD polls: BJP kicks off new campaign to reach out to Metro commuters

The BJP has started a new campaign in Delhi aiming to directly reach out to commuters on the national capital's Metro.

Delhi state Bharatiya Janata Party kicked off a new campaign on Friday to boost campaigning for the municipal elections in the Capital.

The Delhi BJP Yuva Morcha workers began 'Commuter Contact Campaign' at 100 metro stations in Delhi.

The campaign aimed at directly reaching out to commuters seeking their support in the elections ahead.

The campaign was launched at Connaught Place Metro Station that was attended by Delhi state BJP president Manoj Tiwari along with Shyam Jaju, Vijender Gupta and Ashish Sood.

The BJP leaders distributed pamphlets listing achievements of the three BJP-ruled civic bodies.

They also distributed pamphlets, allegedly exposing Aam Aadmi Party and Delhi State Congress, revealing their acts of corruption.

Manoj Tiwari, while addressing media said, "The success of BJP-Akali candidate at Rajouri Garden reflects the mood of the people of Delhi and my experience of Commuter Contact Campaign at Metro Stations says that people of Delhi will support BJP target of 202+ in Municipal Elections."

Taking a dig at AAP convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, Twari said he should now understand that it is not EVM but people who give verdict in a democracy.

"Kejriwal has during the last one month been showing disrespect to peoples' mandate by holding the EVMs responsible for his electoral losses. Now, the people have forfeited security deposit of AAP" he added.

The campaign will continue till April 20, 2017 at all Metro Stations, Bus Terminals and major Markets to directly interact with Delhi electorates.
