Political leaders from Gurgaon have been asked to pitch in for Municipal corporation Delhi elections and reach out to the youth and women to ensure victory of party candidates.

The leaders of Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP), Congress, and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have been assigned areas adjoining Gurgaon and have been asked to make frequent visits to these areas to assist the local leadership.

The ruling BJP has deputed local leaders from its youth and women’s wings as district conveners, assembly constituency in-charges, and ward conveners. The leaders have been assigned two areas — outer Delhi and Mehrauli. Gurgaon BJP general secretary Manoj Sharma is coordinator of both the areas.

Manish Yadav, president, Haryana BJP Yuva Morcha, has been made convenor of the Mehrauli area, while Bhupender Chauhan, district BJP president, is the convenor for Mehrauli assembly constituency.

Gurgaon BJP Mahila Morcha (women’s wing) has been assigned the task of reaching out to women voters.

“We are highlighting achievements of the BJP government in the Centre and states. We are confident that the party will post a record win in Delhi civic elections,” Chauhan said.

GL Sharma, chairman of Haryana cooperative dairy federation, has been made the convener for outer Delhi. “We visit Delhi every morning and return in the evening. The experience is enriching and will help us in the local civic body elections that are scheduled to be held soon,” he said.

Leaders from neighbouring Faridabad have also been directed to reach out to voters and help in canvasing for the party.

Congress has deputed a group of 12 local leaders who visit the neighbouring areas in Delhi on rotation basis. “The leaders are visiting assigned areas on rotational basis for ground level contact with voters” said Sukhbir Kataria, Congress leader and former Gurgaon MLA.

RS Rathee, AAP spokesperson, said a group of about 50 party leaders and workers from Gurgaon have been tasked with highlighting the Delhi government’s achievements before the elections.
