BJP general secretary Arun Singh told reporters that Nadda will begin his travel probably from December 5 and Uttarakhand will be the first state on his itinerary.

The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has started preparations to expand its base throughout the country with an eye on the coming Assembly elections and the Lok Sabha elections in 2024.

As part of this massive exercise, Party president J P Nadda has decided to embark on a 120-day tour across the country from the first week of December, PTI report. The tour intended to tone up the saffron party’s formidable organisational machinery ahead of the elections will focus on regions where it did not fare well in the last general election.

BJP general secretary Arun Singh told reporters that Nadda will begin his travel probably from December 5 and Uttarakhand will be the first state on his itinerary. He said that the party chief will visit every state, hold virtual meetings with heads of all booth units, the smallest organisational entity in the party, and meet every MP and MLA of the organisation besides its senior leaders, including district chiefs, in each state.

During the travel, he will also strategize with party leaders for strengthening the organisation in Lok Sabha seats and regions where the BJP did not win in the 2019 polls, he said.

With assembly polls in four states, West Bengal, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Assam, set to be held in the first half of the next year, he will also review the party's preparedness for the elections, Singh said.

The BJP-ruled states will give presentation to Nadda on various aspects of their work, including implementation of the central government schemes and on to how to further raise awareness about them. He will also meet BJP's allies and hold public programmes and press conferences as well, Singh said.

Meanwhile, Nadda's predecessor and Home Minister Amit Shah urged the party’s Tamil Nadu unit to work harder so the party can capture power on their own in the next five years. He said that the party will see to it Tamil Nadu also comes into the BJP’s fold.

“We have received a clear guideline now. He (Shah) told us to grow on our own, strengthen the booth committees and give our full time for the party for the next five years,” Hindustan Times quoted a senior party leader as saying.

Shah, who went to Chennai on a two-day visit on November 21, had met a host of leaders including chief minister Edappadi Palaniswami and his deputy O Paneerselvam, BJP office bearers and newly joined members. Shah also held discussions with RSS ideologue and Thuglak editor S Gurumurthy in the wee hours on Sunday (with inputs from PTI and Hindustan Times)
