Ahead of BJP national president Amit Shah’s visit to Uttarakhand, party state unit chief Ajay Bhatt on Friday unveiled a plan to distribute radios to 228 mandal presidents for playing the prime minister’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ before locals.
Claiming that the plan was his brainchild, he said a few radios would be distributed by Shah while others would be provided through the party’s district presidents.
“I had planned which was accepted by the party to distribute radios to mandal president so that they could share our PM’s Mann Ki Baat with the people of their area,” Bhatt said at press a conference here.
The party will also seek monthly report from mandal presidents on the ‘utilisation’ of radio, he said.
Sharing details of Shah’s visit on September 19 and 20, Bhatt said minute to minute plan has been chalked out during which Shah would be taking many meetings with leaders.
Shah would be reaching Jolly Grant airport 9.30 am on September 19. He will be welcomed at 6 places between the airport and a city hotel where he is scheduled to take meetings with state working member committee, core committee and others.
The same day he will meet representatives of all BJP wings and will also have lunch with some reputed people of the town. Late at night, he will be meeting MPs and MLAs.
The next day he will reach BJP headquarters where he will inaugurate the e-library and will again take meeting with other teams. He will take lunch with a Dalit family.
“We have not yet decided where he will have lunch. It will be finalised on September 18 or 19,” Bhatt said.
He will meet members of the party, thereafter, at Survey of India Stadium following which he will be given a PPT presentation on core group, management and social media.
Shah will leave the state capital on September 20 night by train.
Notably, top BJP leaders in the hill state are updating themselves on status of various central and state government schemes and intensified their public engagements ahead of the national president’s visit.
