To woo young voters, BJP launches ‘selfie with Modi’delhi Updated: Jan 25, 2015 02:48 IST
In an effort to woo young voters, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will set up around 2,500 ‘Selfie with Modi’ booths across Delhi where people will be able to click their photos with a virtual Narendra Modi.
The first ‘Selfie with Modi’ booth was inaugurated by BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday at Khan Market.
Modi is known for clicking selfies on various occasions. The party feels the ‘Selfie with Modi’ campaign will hit the right chord in the city when it goes to polls on February 7. “The Selfie with Modi is our party’s initiative to connect with the young voters in Delhi,” said Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who was also present on the occasion. He added, “Narendra Modi has a popularity of his own and to reach out to the people before the elections in a way like this is very innovative.”
When Pradhan was asked why it was ‘Selfie with Modi’ and not with Kiran Bedi when she is the party’s face for the Delhi Assembly polls, he said, “Kiran Bedi is roaming across Delhi, sometimes she is travelling by rickshaw, sometime she is having tea from roadside stalls, people can anyway reach out to her and click pictures. Moreover, Narendra Modi is our PM and the main leader whereas Kiran Bedi is our CM candidate. So we have launched this campaign.”
