BJP on Saturday said its workers will visit all households in Delhi and distribute sweets as a token of appreciation for “supporting” the demonetisation drive, and also take feedback on the state government’s performance.
The visit by BJP workers beginning January 1 will be part of a 10-day programme, newly-appointed Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari said.
He said party workers will “thank” people of the national capital region for their “patience” during the demonetisation exercise launched by the Union government on November 8.
“Our party cadres will go to every household to express gratitude to the people and offer ‘laddoos’ for supporting the demonetisation move,” Tiwari said.
“Also, they will encourage residents to use Mobile App Banking. They will also take their feedback on the AAP led Delhi government’s performance from the people and according prepare a list of promises which were not being fulfilled,” he said.
Accusing Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party government of sitting over a file relating to the delimitation of MCD wards, Tiwari said a delegation of BJP leaders will meet Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, urging him to complete the process of delimitation of wards.
BJP leader Vijender Gupta alleged that the AAP government has maligned the image of the leaders of Municipal Corporations by making them financially weak and by accusing them of incompetency and corruption.
“The next elections to the Municipal Corporations are to be held after the delimitation of the wards and the government is sitting on the file relating to this. This neglectful attitude creates doubt about the intentions of the government about corporation elections and we demand that the formalities of delimitation work should be completed as soon as possible,” Gupta said.
Tiwari also welcomed a scheme of the Central government to award prizes to encourage people transact online and support the idea of a cashless economy, saying under the scheme a ‘lucky draw’ will be held every day from from December 25 for people purchasing articles worth between Rs 50 to Rs 3,000 through mobile app banking.
“Under this scheme 1,5000 persons will get prize of Rs 1,000 each and on April 14, on the birth anniversary of Baba Sahab Bhim Rao Ambedkar, a mega draw of Rs 1 crore will be held,” Tiwari said. Tiwari and other BJP leaders paid homage to the soldiers on Vijay Diwas and the December 16 gangrape deceased.
