BJP organizes mass meetings to mobilize support for “Bijly Rally”
Overwhelming support from JJ clusters, unauthorized colonies, lower and middle income groups for the rally
New Delhi, August 9: - On a whirlwind tour across the city to mobilize mass support for the Sunday’s Bijli Andolan Rally at Ramlila Maidan, Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel addressed more than a dozen public meetings in the last two days.
The party is focusing specially on JJ clusters, unauthorized colonies and middle and lower income groups in terms of participation in the rally. While Shri Goel held public meetings in Najafgarh, Mehrauli, Mangolpuri, Model Town, Babarpur etc on Thursday, he visited Sultanpuri Majra, Gokulpuri, Mustafabad etc on Friday. Speaking at these public meetings, Shri Goel outlined agenda for the welfare of people that BJP will implement immediately on coming to power in Delhi.
“Reducing the power tariffs in Delhi is not an impossible task. What is required is the right kind of intention. These hikes in power tariff is the result of unholy nexus between the Delhi government, Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) and power distribution companies who have joined hands to fleece the people and fill their own coffers.
To reduce the power tariffs, all we have to do is carry out the independent audit of these power companies, and all you have to do is vote- out this corrupt Congress government from Delhi,” said Shri Goel amidst loud support at a public meeting in Sultanpuri Majra. He further exhorted them to express their support by coming to Ramlila Maidan in large numbers on Sunday.
Talking about the preparations for the rally, Shri Goel said that more than 7000 buses have already been booked to carry party cadres to the grounds while lakhs of people are expected to come on their own - using private or public transport. A huge publicity campaign - in which more than 5000 banners and 1000 hoardings- have also been put across the city in context of the Sunday rally.
The part has held public meetings in almost all 70 assembly constituencies gathering huge support. Special awareness campaigns are being run by all 14 districts and 280 mandals of the party on this issue.
The party has constituted 19 special committees to look after the preparations of this historic event which is a show of people’s strength against anti-people policies of the Congress government in Delhi.
Two Chariots with LCD screens have been specially prepared to go all around the city and expose Congress government by screening special films which exposes Congress’ dubious role in increasing power tariffs. A specially designed awareness campaign on mass media platforms as well as social media has also been launched.
