New Delhi, May 29 (IANS) BJP President Amit Shah on Tuesday launched a massive nationwide “Sampark Se Samarthan” (contact for support) personal outreach programme to highlight the achievements of the Narendra Modi-led government in the last four years.
Shah kicked off the programme by calling on former Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag at his residence here on Mandir Marg. He handed Suhag a few booklets on the achievements of the Modi government.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief also met former Secretary General of the Lok Sabha and constitutional expert Subhash Kashyap at his residence.
After meeting them, Shah told the media: “I went to Suhagji and Kashyapji’s residences and apprised them of the work of Modi government in the last four years. I handed them the booklet on achievements of the government.”
Shah is scheduled to personally meet at least 50 eminent personalities to apprise them of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government’s achievements.
Explaining the party’s massive outreach programme, the BJP chief said: “The nationwide programme has been launched on the completion of four years of the Modi government at the Centre.”
He said that 4,000 elected members of the BJP would connect with over one lakh people from every field across the country.
Besides the elected members, 50 lakh BJP workers would launch a door-to-door campaign and meet citizens throughout the country.
Shah said: “The aim of this programme is to inform the people about how the BJP has worked for every section of the society and touched their lives, which the country had been expecting for a long time.”
He stressed that the BJP had touched the lives of the poor and also served a number of villages in the last four years by taking government schemes to the rural areas.
The BJP leader, also a Rajya Sabha member, said: “In the fifth year of this government, the BJP will increase the income of farmers and also provide health insurance worth Rs 5 lakh each to 50 crore households across the country.”
Earlier, Shah was scheduled to launch the contact programme from Suhag’s Gurugram-located house in Haryana, but that was cancelled at the last minute, a party official said.
It is part of the party’s effort to reach out to the maximum number of people ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
Modi, also as part of the campaign, addressed beneficiaries of the Ujjwala Yojana and Mudra Yojana on Monday and Tuesday, respectively, through the NaMo app.
