india Updated: Feb 10, 2009 19:04 IST

The Gujarat BJP Yuva Morcha has planned a campaign that will run parallel to the ongoing enrollment drive by youth Congress in different districts to reach out to the youth across the state.

"The BJP Yuva Morcha will start its campaign to reach out to the youths from February 11 on the the death anniversary of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay and continue it till February 25. The campaign will cover all the 182 assembly constituencies in the state," BJP youth wing president Jitu Vaghani said in Ahmedabad on Tuesday.

"We expect to reach out to nearly 25 lakh youths across the state during this two-week-long campaign," he said.

According to Vaghani, members of the BJP Yuva Morcha will contact youths aged between 18-25 years through door-to-door meetings.

The timing of the campaign coincides with the enrollment drive launched by the state Congress' youth wing and the elections of the office bearers of the Youth Congress in Gujarat.

Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi is also expected to tour Saurashtra and central Gujarat districts between February 11 and 14.
