Raipur. BJP's three-day camp is starting in Jagdalpur from Tuesday evening. However, the party leaders are still keeping their distance from the media. Chhattisgarh BJP in charge, D Purandeshwari, who came to attend the camp, said it is an internal matter. We will chalk out a strategy for the preparations for the coming elections. Earlier, the workers at Jagdalpur Airport warmly welcomed him.
All the top BJP leaders will be involved in this. The leaders who may be on the list are BJP's national co-organization general secretary Shiv Prakash, national general secretary BL Santosh, co-in-charge Nitin Naveen. Apart from this, many leaders including, Dharamlal Kaushik, Brijmohan Agarwal, will also reach Bastar.
The party's state president Vishnudev Sai has reached the Chintan Shivir held at Hotel Avinash International in Jagdalpur. Former CM Dr Raman Singh will also reach by evening. The significant thing is that only 6 to 7 leaders of the Bastar division are included in this meeting. However, the party has not yet disclosed the names of those leaders.
There are still two and a half years left for the assembly elections in the state. BJP does not want to take any chance, given the position in the state. In the closed room, the national and state-level leaders of the party will talk about the election strategy. On the last day, there will be a meeting with the workers of the entire division.
In the last assembly elections, Congress had given a thumping defeat to the BJP. All the 12 seats of the Bastar division are currently with Congress. Although BJP's Bhima Mandavi had won from Dantewada during the elections, the Naxalites killed him during the Lok Sabha elections. In the subsequent by-elections, Congress's Devi Karma defeated Ojaswi Mandavi, wife of Bhima Mandavi. This is why BJP is now going to make its election strategy from Bastar. Amid the fight for the post of CM in the Congress government. At the same time, the eyes of the centre are directly on the politics of Bastar. In such a situation, before Rahul Gandhi's visit to Bastar, this program of BJP is drawing concern.
