Several local Muslim leaders aspiring for ticket from the BJP were also seen in the rally amid tightened security. The BJP in last MCD election had given tickets to local Muslim leaders who failed in the fray. The rally on Friday was part of the BJP’s “Har Ghar Sampark” campaign which was launched two days ago.
While launching the campaign, Delhi BJP president Adesh Gupta had said: “We have distributed the flag of Bharatiya Janata Party in every house and have also told the people of Delhi about the achievements of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Along with this, the false promises of the Delhi Government have also been exposed in front of the people of Delhi. We have started “Har Ghar Sampark Abhiyan” from Jahangirpuri which will be done from November 1-6 with the aim of reaching 25 lakh families. Our slogan is “Seva Hi Prachar, Nahi khokle Vichaar.”
With election date for the 250 wards after unification announced, Delhi will see intense fight between the APP and BJP with the Congress also try hard to makes its presence felt.
