New Delhi: The BJP top brass set the tone for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls at its Parliamentary Party meeting on Thursday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking party leaders to reach out to youths.
BJP chief Amit Shah said the parliamentary elections are the next big challenge for the party following its win in the recently concluded state polls.
Keeping up with its outreach to Dalits, a substantial chunk of whom is believed to have voted for the BJP in the Uttar Pradesh polls, it has decided to launch various week-long events from Bhim Rao Ambedkar's birth anniversary on April 14.
The party will observe the week-long exercise in every panchayat and ward. It will also celebrate its foundation day on April 6 during which its leaders and workers will take part in 'swachh Bharat' campaign.
They were also asked to publicise Ambedkar's works and contributions.
The Prime Minister said youths should be made "ambassadors" of the Union government's public welfare works and good governance.
Modi said youngsters depend on mobile phones more than on newspapers and TV channels to get information and stressed on the need to use this medium of communication to tap them. He also asked the party leaders to contact them while they are in Class XII.
Shah said the party's win in the recently concluded assembly polls was an outcome of people's vote against casteism, family rule and corruption and in favour of Modi's leadership under which public welfare and good governance is the agenda.
The BJP's win underlined people's support for the welfare schemes launched by the Central government and a brave decision like demonetisation, Shah claimed.
The BJP Parliamentary Party also passed a resolution thanking voters for their support and also party's workers for their efforts under the leadership of Modi and Shah.
It also expressed hope that the BJP governments in these states will provide good governance and run public welfare programmes.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh proposed the resolution and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley supported it, which was passed unanimously, Kumar said.
The party leaders were also distributed 'prasad' of the Tirupati temple.
