The Delhi BJP will collect public opinion on civic and developmental issues in the city. On the basis of the feedback, the party will prepare a 10-point agenda that will be its priority in the upcoming municipal corporation polls.
The move, sources said, was the first step in trying to woo voters and preparing the ground for municipal elections due next year. This exercise is also being touted as the first step towards preparation of an election manifesto.
Manoj Tiwari, newly appointed president of the party’s Delhi unit, said public responses would be invited through e-mails for which a dedicated ID— DelBjpMT@gmail.com — has been created. After analysis by a team of experts, a final list of all issues and suggestions will be prepared.
“With the help of suggestions collected through email, we will prepare a 10-points agenda to move forward for the betterment of the city and for the welfare of its citizens. This will let us know what the expectations of the city are and what the people of Delhi want from us. They can send their views and ideas by January 10,” he said.
Tiwari said people can send mails after the deadline, which would be taken up for further course of action. Tiwari is likely to formally release the mail ID next week.
For monitoring the entire process, a special team of experts is being set up within the media and IT cell of the party.
“The party’s media and IT teams are being further strengthened. A dedicated team will supervise the process and help evaluation of public responses. This email ID will continue to function after January 10 and we will keep addressing issues related to Delhi,” the BJP leader said.
The email ID, Tiwari said, will be printed on the feedback form, which Tiwari plans to send to every household for seeking response on demonetisation.
Starting from January 1 next year, each party worker will visit at least 20 families and submit a report to district president, who in turn, will send a complete report to Tiwari. The drive will continue for 10 days.
