Lucknow: After its thumping victory in the recent Lok Sabha polls, the BJP said on Saturday that it will now concentrate on strengthening the organisation in states where it is not in power.

"We have to strengthen the BJP in those states where the party is not in power," BJP national vice president Shivraj Singh Chouhan said at a press conference here.

Chouhan, who is also the chief of the party's membership drive, said, "We will organise the drive from July 6 to August 11 all over the country to expand the base of the party."

The former Madhya Pradesh chief minister was flanked by UP BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey, who has become the Union Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship after his re-election to the Lok Sabha last month.

Both the senior leaders earlier addressed a membership workshop at the state party headquarters here.

The Delhi BJP on Saturday appointed district-level conveners and co-conveners for a month-long drive to enlist 10 lakh new members in the party.

The membership campaign will be launched on July 6, the birth anniversary of Syama Prasad Mookerjee, and will conclude on August 11.

Delhi BJP general secretary and head of the campaign Kuljeet Chahal said the conveners and co-conveners of all the 14 BJP district units have been appointed and the block-level conveners and co-conveners will be appointed in the coming week.

The campaign assumes significance since it is being launched ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls scheduled early next year, he said, adding new members will be enrolled both online and offline.

In 2015, such a campaign was initiated in which old members were re-enrolled as primary members.

"We have the target of enrolling 10 lakh new members in Delhi who will work to strengthen the organization," Chahal said.

Emphasis will be laid on enrolling new members on the booths where party is in a weak position, he added.​
