Union defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman and senior BJP leader JS Pawaiya, who are in charge of the Lok Sabha elections in Delhi, on Friday met party workers to collect feedback and suggestions regarding the upcoming polls.

Pawaiya said, “We are just meeting all party workers to get feedback regarding what needs to be done to ensure a BJP win in all seven seats in Delhi. Workers had sought time to share their views with us.”

A senior BJP member, who met the two leaders, said they wanted to know how the party can boost its victory margin in the upcoming elections and point out key issues in each parliamentary constituency that needs to be addressed.

While senior leaders are meeting party workers, the BJP leaders said a full-fledged election campaign will be launched after Holi, which is to come on March 21. “This is not the auspicious time to start any important work. The preparations for the elections will star after Holi. We will set up the election office after the festival,” Rajesh Bhatia, general secretary, Delhi BJP, said.

The party is yet to start the process to form various committees, including those for election management, manifesto, campaign strategy, among others.

Meanwhile, Union minister Vijay Goel held a cycle rally in East Delhi to protest against the alleged failure of the Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government to curb pollution in the city.
